Betty Jo's Valentines

  • Rooster
    These are valentines from my mother's childhood scrapbook, "Betty Jo" Halloran. They were sent and received, from her siblings, grandparents, cousins, and friends, from 1929 to 1938, in Fargo, North Dakota, and Minneapolis/St. Paul. Please enjoy them with my love. xoxo, Susie

January 18, 2008



Let me get this straight ... on January 18th '08, you wrote about the "past Sunday's Super Bowl game", and you describe various gametime activities that occurred.

Please, please, please can you tell me the final score? AND who was playing. I'd like to place a bet with those who don't know.

The NFL playoff game is being played as I type this - to determine who will play in the upcoming Super Bowl. On February 3rd.

A case of advance scripting gone wrong?


For a minute, I thought you were going to go all Julia Child on us - cooking half and partaking of the other half - what with 2 cucumbers and all.



Maduros the local name for cooked ripe plantains, are a rather large banana that is not eaten raw. Plantains are a staple of Cuban and Caribbean cuisine. Maduro is Spanish for ripe.

Green plantains (unripe) can be used when to make tostones. Thick plantain slices are fried once to crisp the outside. The slices are smashed flat and fried again to cook the inside, then served lightly salted.

Another way to cook green plantains is to cut them in thin slices and fry them. The lightly salted mariquitas, as they are called, are usually dipped in a mojo (garlic sauce).

This looks like a must try recipe. Thanks!


My grandmother, Consuelo Mesa de Castillo, made exquisite quacamole. She did 'gunk' it up with some of the things Miz Susie eschews. For each perfect avocado, chop & add 1 small, peeled & seeded tomato, 1/4 to 1/2 finely chopped onion (chopped very fine, and don't add too much,) cilantro, lime juice, salt and pepper. If you want, add chopped jalapeno to taste.

My Mexican grandma thought Americans overspiced their food. But that she meant they add so much of a spice that it is all you taste. To her, herbs & spices were used to enhance the natural flavor of the major ingredients, not be the main event.
