While we were sitting around the campfire the previous evening, Bob suggested we go to breakfast at No No’s Café the next morning and we all quickly agreed. While no shots were taken the previous night, we were all prepared with cameras for this meal. Here are a couple of shots of the Café.
Bob took a shot of us then the waitress got one of the whole group - Heather, Pat, Bob, Larry, Bev, Lea Ann.
I’ve been on a potatoes-and-eggs kick lately and ordered the Hash Brown Pie which was a mix of peppers, onions, tomatoes, bacon, cheese and hash browns along with two over easy eggs. This is how it looked after I fixed it.
Bev and Lea Ann had a breakfast burrito – humongous as usual - Bev and I shared the leftovers the next morning.
Bob and Heather had the Cajun Grits and Eggs described as: Green onions, bacon pieces, cheese, roasted jalapenos, pepper jack and cheddar cheese, Cajun seasoning and butter (no photo of it).
Everyone seemed to really like their meals, especially those with bacon in them (all but Pat’s) – it was very good bacon.
After breakfast we followed Hearther over to a little outdoor market to pick up some roasted chiles that were from Hatch, NM - Chile Capital of the World. We also picked up some green and red chile powder.
We got a bushel of the mild Anaheim type chiles and we split a half bushel of roasted jalapenos with Heather and Lea Ann. The direct flame tumbling roasters they use work better than my grill as it quickly blisters the skin which cooks the peppers less, so they are sturdier to work with.
We ended up with five quart bags of chiles and a quart of jalapenos in the freezer and I'm looking forward to using them soon. When I’ve grown and roasted my own chiles, I had always peeled and seeded them prior to freezing but the young man doing the roasting advised that this was a mistake as I was tossing most of the flavor and I should peel and seed them after thawing and just before using.
Please check Lea Ann's blog for more shots and info.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.
