The Saturday Market is always enjoyable…
Hello Happy Face!
Another Saturday in Las Cruces brought a visit to the Farmers and Crafts Market. Sadly, Roxanne and I missed the delicious grape tomatoes that vendors sell from Deming. They were sold out!
Yum – Kettle Corn!
We decided to “lick our wounds” with individual bags of kettle corn – Roxanne/plain, Me/red chile!
Aren’t these little ladybug girls cute?
We visited a couple museums for some “culture”…
Branigan Cultural Center
The Branigan Cultural Center is a small but well laid out museum. There is a permanent exhibit called “Las Cruces: Crossroads of History.” There were also two temporary exhibits entitled, “Peru is Beautiful” (Photography) and “Coffee: The World in a Cup.” There is a story hour for children every Saturday, and afterwards each child receives a free copy of the book read.
New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum
The New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum was a different story. I had been there several times before as a teacher with children on a field trip, and alone to photograph. Previously, I’ve only paid admission to tour the inside museum building, not the windmill and the other “rusty” stuff. There was a sign for wine tasting, and the lady there was quick to say “she couldn’t do it,” and the person who could was in the back room counting money. (She never appeared.) The woman at the information desk was busy with a mirror putting on lipstick. Needless to say, Roxanne and I got a “bad vibe” and left. Apparently the museum is not in the “people business.”
My, my – I MUST have pie!
New Mexican Apple Pie
Since it was too hot to work outside on my RV, I decided to do a re-do of the New Mexican Apple Pie with green chile and pinon nuts and a vegan pastry crust. I made sure that the coconut oil was solid this time, and worked in the ice water little by little. Score!
Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for visiting!
