I'm totally making fun of our East Coast neighbors....for those of us who grew up on the West Coast, watching the reaction of the people on the East Coast to the earthquake made me chuckle!! Apparently it make other people laugh as well. Photos of the destruction were immediately tweeted and here is a funny one...

One of the most requested recipes people ask me to make is Chile Con Queso, Spanish for chile with cheese. It is sometimes hard to admit but I love Velveeta! along with Big Mac's!! its a little secret of mine. Velveeta is necessary in this dish. We happen to love it with Frito's, but tortilla chips are good also, and surprisingly I like it with cucumbers or slices of zucchini. Here in New Mexico we are having 100 degree heat mixed with smoke from the forest fires mixed with wind. Its a battle out there, so tonight, make this dish, enjoy it with a Margarita and pray for rain.
Chile Con Queso
brick of Velveeta
10 roasted and peeled green chiles
can of fire roasted tomatoes
In a food processor, blend the green chiles
saute the green chiles, onion and tomatoes until soft. Add the Velveeta, and cut the cheese into smaller pieces so that they can melt. Slowly melt the cheese and stir until all is blended. Enjoy

Resort found Tory Burch "thinking a lot about Santa Fe and the colors of the southwest." Rusty clay red and turquoise figured prominently, and Justin Giunta, who works with Burch on her collection's jewelry, cast a bit of cactus to make a pendant
I really love this resort collection by Tory! The colors are amazing, and the clothes a little fun and funky. Enjoy

For me, this room is perfection. The understated elegance, the fantastic use of texture. I also can never pass up a room with cowhide and sisal, and stripes are the bomb, snakeskin....even better. This room will be the inspiration for my home. I really like how it looks collected and not decorated.
I have been a huge fan of Ralph Lauren, ever since reading about how he started his empire by selling ties out of the trunk of his car in New York. Very inspiring!
My motto has always been, do I want to lead the Hooters kind of life or the Ralph Lauren kind of life...well, I never did like chicken wings.

“If a cluttered desk is the sign of a cluttered mind, what is the significance of a clean desk?” Laurence J. Peter
I have little pockets of disorganization left in my home. Most of the bigger projects have been accomplished, such as the garage, organization of the home office files and the like. But the little pockets of disorganization annoy me on a daily bases. So… to conquer the annoying little pockets, I am committing to cleaning out one cupboard, one closet, one self a day until these pockets are finished!! So today, is the pantry. Both boys arrived home yesterday from college and that means I have to keep food in the house! and a lot of it. After a major shopping at Trader Joe’s yesterday, (and by the way even the check out girl at TJ in Albuquerque told me that “you guys in Las Cruces need to start a letter writing campaign to finally get a store in LC” duhh, we’ve been trying, I have to stay more organized in the food department.
