Well, you've read the notes, you're now craving you-know-what just like me, and now it is time for you to post until the cows and their sticky buns come home.

A birthday wish has been added to the notes, so if you didn't see it, go back and read the last section.

Welcome six GUESTS.  We're talkin' about sticky buns and Mexican food, not necessarily in that order.

My favorite thing to have in Mexican restaurants is two cheese enchiladas covered in guacamole and sour cream, and one beef taco.  I could live on that combo platter.

Do you know I can't remember what I did for my twenty-first birthday.  Three months prior to it I wed, that much I remember.  And I think I moved to New York with the little woman right after my twenty-first birthday.  I think that's right.  And then the little woman became pregnant with the little daughter, and then the little daughter was born when I was twenty-two.  But what I did to celebrate my twenty-first is lost to the ages.  And fourteen years after I became wed I became happily unwed on a gloriously glorious day.

Good Morning!

As for Mexican food... Just open up to any page in the cookbooks by Diana Kennedy and Rick Bayless, and I'm sure you'll find something I like.  -I did notice the "collected" Diana Kennedy books on the shelf.  Her first three Mexican cookbooks in one volume.  Hmm...  I'll have to see if the The Good Cook Book Club has it.  Otherwise...

Tamales.  Really good tamales.  Red sauce.  Green sauce.  Pork.  Beef.  Lengua.  Chorizo. Con Queso - usually [/i]cotija[/i].  And I've also had some very good vegetarian ones - mushrooms in particular.  Oh, and maybe served with some crema on top.  -Oh, and the sweet ones with corn and/or pineapple.

-That's still one of my favorite culinary memories of LA last summer.  Going to the top of the subway stops at Vermont/Beverly and MacArthur Park, and buying the tamales from the abuelas who had set up small carts.  All different kinds, representing their home villages.  And usually just a $1.00/piece!  And then I'd usually wash those down with some arroz con leche or, better yet, some champurrado.  Although, I do like horchata too.  -And with a swirl of guava nectar when available!

I don't know from this place - but I put in "sticky buns" and "Los Angeles" on Google and got - among other things - this hit.

South of the Border food - I shall need to ask OzDerek who is from Tasmania and thus South of this border.  Perhaps they have Tasmanian Devilled kidneys.

I couldn't tell you what I did on my 21st b-day if you put a gun to my head. I know I wasn't married - that much I can tell you for sure. Married at 21! Yikes! And I wasn't in New York.

I'm easy with Mex food.  Lucy's El Adobe, beef or chicken enchildas and a nice big margarita.

My 21st birthday my father took me to the Playboy Club in Cincinnati. Just the two of us. I had my first mixed drink...a screwdriver.

"And perhaps a sticky bun!... Or four..."

Is that the right Into the Woods quote?

In any case...

Sticky buns are basically cinnamon buns/rolls with extra gooey stuff.  Said gooey stuff is usually made up of butter and brown sugar.  Pecans are also usually added to the mixture.

When making a batch of sticky buns, one places the brown sugar and butter in the bottom of a pan.  The buns - not yet sticky at this point, although depending upon the dough you're using... - are then placed on top.  As the buns bake in the oven, the brown sugar and butter caramelize, becoming very sticky.  Once out of the oven, the pan is turned over onto a plates, and all the sticky goodness just goo-zes all over the buns, now sticky buns.

In a pinch, you can make your own by using refrigerated biscuit dough, but it's worth the time and effort to make a really buttery brioche dough for the bun part.  Soooo decadent.

I got a lovely e-mail last night from someone who grew up in my old neighborhood, who's reading Benjamin Kritzer.  I love those e-mails - the Kritzer books really seem to mean a lot to folks who lived in that area and grew up then.

Those sticky buns look yummilicious and vaguely familiar - I may have had those before, but I will definintely be having one tomorrow.  Perhaps I'll eat Mexican food tomorrow as well.

As for my 21st Birthday.... Hmm... I can't remember either.  I think I was in tech for a show most likely.  Or was I?

However, I do remember my 30th and 35th.  I turned 30 the first summer I moved back to Richmond... wow, six years ago.  Great little party with some friends, old and new.  I turned 35 in Australia.  Jumped off a 10 meter diving platform, and had some wonderful food that night too.  Including an oversized vegemite sandwich.  And an oyster shooter made with sake.  Or two or three... or four... or five... Heck, I wasn't paying!  And then a shot of Patron Silver... or two... or three... Heck!  I wasn't paying!  Or driving!

Oh, I just noticed that those sticky buns have currants in them.  Some people like currants, some people don't.  I don't mind them, but I find that they usually get burned in sticky buns.  But I don't mind an overabundance of pecans.  And some places even make them with almonds.  YUM!

...Well, I thought my diet was starting (again) today.  ;)
