Thanks for the response, Cristina.
there are few Mexicans, whether in Mexico or in the USA, who still make their own tortillas on a daily basis.
Actually, I made that point first. I held back a bit out of politeness.
You are a model of self control, girl!
It breaks my heart here to see so many Mexicans buy the crappy tortillas that come from Texas! I'm sure they are good in TX but we have many tortillerias (and lesbians) here.
The same people that offered me my own brand of masa harina also offered me tortillas with a 6 month shelf life. Yummy nummy woohoo!
Edited to say- PDX may be an interesting island, like Chicago, where some old traditions have stayed even though they've been diluted in Mexico.
"Gay people exist. There's nothing we can do in public policy that makes more of us exist, or less of us exist. And you guys have been arguing for a generation that public policy ought to essentially demean gay people as a way of expressing disapproval of the fact that we exist, but you don't make any less of us exist. You just are arguing in favor of more discrimination, and more discrimination doesn't make straight people's lives any better." -Rachel Maddow to Jim DeMint and Ralph Reed
