A Winter’s Taste

Raise your hand if you’ve had Thanksgiving dinner for breakfast the last two days!

Today, culinary editor for New Mexico Magazine Cheryl Alters Jamison brought a feast into the Builders Source Kitchen with New Mexico zing.  Man, I’ve never had cranberry sauce with cumin, pistachios and green chile.  A great way to put a yummy zing on a traditional side dish.  She also shared some sound advice on what to look out for when picking our birds this year (be sure those pounds you’re paying for are for the turkey and not the saline fillers).  You can pick up a copy of this months New Mexico Magazine on newsstands or online at NMMagazine.com.

And just in time for winter, Kenny got out to the Open Space Visitor Center to catch a glimpse of the Sandhill Cranes.  These annual visitors are best seen at sunrise and sunset.  They can also be seen conversing, as seen in our daily pic, courtesy of dukecityfix.com

If you’re looking for some Native arts or wanting to celebrate Native American Heritage Month, the Winter Indian Arts Market is the place to be.  Featuring a wide variety of arts, mediums and events from Native artists across North America, this Thanksgiving weekend event will offer a bit of something for everyone.  Especially excited about the infusion of music and hoop dancing with Brian Frejo and Nakotah Larance.  More info online here.

And speaking of arts, here in ABQ, you can get a glimpse of some exceptional young artists’ work at the Art.Write.Now Touring exhibit as part of the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers.  I gotta tell you, folks, I caught a sneak peek of this exhibit online and was blown away by the work -all done by teens.  You’re invited to the kick-off exhibit tomorrow night at the National Hispanic Cultural Center.  Get out and see these exceptional emerging artists’ work now!

We’re nearly a week away from the 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination and tomorrow, we’re talking to an author who will share shocking details about the President’s final hours that will leave you on the edge of your seat.  See y’all tomorrow morning.
