A Doomsday Mexican Fiesta for December 21

by Spicie Foodie on December 20, 2012

Sound apocalyptic music…

For some reason I keep hearing “The Imperial March” (aka the Darth Vader theme) in head. Well since the world is coming to an end you might as well know I’m a Star Wars nerd fan.

Speaking of end of the world, it’s happening on Friday December 21. Some say the end is near, some say we’ll see Armageddon soon…Some say a comet will fall from the sky followed by meteor showers and tidal waves followed by fault lines that cannot sit still… Oh wait that’s a song by the band Tool. Oh yeah I remember know, it was these guys called the Mayans who supposedly said that come December 21st we are all pretty screwed. Or maybe that’s just modern day wacko interpretations.

So if the world is going to explode into bits and pieces then I’m going down with a belly as wide as I am tall. I’m throwing a Doomsday Mexican fiesta! From today until the last second before the doomsday events and Zombies come knocking on my door (on December 21) I will be gorging myself just incase. There’s nothing worse then facing the apocalypse on an empty stomach. So I’ll be eating all -yes all of the following. Wouldn’t you like to be throwing a fiesta with some of these yummy dishes? Si, si.

Just in case we are all still here on December 22 please forget my nerdy Star Wars revelation. If you don’t see me around it is because I couldn’t roll my jelly-roll butt out off the couch.

I agree – if the world is going to end anyway might as well eat ourselves into oblivion! Love this mexican spread!

All you had to say was Posole to get me to show up to your fiesta. This is the first evening I sat down before I crawled into bed, so if it is over tomorrow I went out with a bang. Too bad you weren’t closer, I’d bring some cookies over before the world ends. He He.

Too bad I would have loved your cookies. But I’m still here so maybe we can still get together for some posole and cookies?:)

Loved that first joke particularly. So much hype–so little real understanding of the cycles abounds! Nice recipe round-up as well. I could go for some pozole today… Happy Holidays!

Reply

39 Spicie Foodie December 22, 2012 at 9:46 PM

Me too I couldn’t get enough of all the ridiculous and unfounded hype about the new cycle or baktun. Thanks and I’m with you I could eat pozole anytime! Merry Christmas:)
