|"The last Sopapilla" © Paula Scott Molokai Girl Studio|
I'll bet you're not quite sure exactly what this image is of. Finishing up dinner at a New Mexican restaurant, I noticed how the last piece of sopapilla looked (it already had been broken in half by my husband). When I saw it, it seemed very abstract. A sopapilla is much like biscuit dough deep fried and served with honey. If comes with traditional New Mexican dishes in just about any restaurant. They are like eating a wonderful pillow! Serving this is a dual purpose-the honey helps to calm down the heat in your mouth from the green chilies served in the dish. It's like having a dessert included with our meal.Simply put, they are quite yummy.
On to 23 skidoo. I was about to use that phrase with my son (he was headed out the door). I stopped, because I thought about how I really didn't know what it meant and where that expression came from. Thinking I should know the meaning of the words I use, I looked it up. Apparently, there is no agreement as to it's origin. You can read what Wikipedia has to say about it and decide for yourself.
In the meantime, I'm going to 23 skidoo. It's the longest day of the year, the first day of summer, and I'm going to take advantage of that!
Happy first day of summer!
