“Chile Verder Stew” Cedar Park, 2024

I made a comforting chile verde pork stew today. I thought it was pretty good, but I would love to put chunks of potato in it next time. Mariko says that doesn’t sound as appealing though, as she’s not as big a “potato person” as I am. 😀

Here’s the recipe we used:

I love my new tinted face shield! I rarely ride at night, so I think the tinted shield will be super-convenient. I had a tinted face-shield on my old helmet so I pretty much know what to expect. Yay for more comfortable (and safer) riding!

Mariko had this Buc-ee’s sticker on her car for a year but got a new sticker from Hawai’i on our last trip there, so she had me replace it. However, the Buc-ee’s sticker was still in good shape so I put it on Kiki. What do you think?
