Growing Up and Green Chile
My life at 16 was different than most. My mom, a career government worker, traveled regularly as part of her job. There were periods when she was gone 2 weeks out of every month. My brother Daniel would stay with his dad and I was left to my own devices. As a young person with very little in the way of common sense, this amount of freedom was a blessing as well as a curse.
Green Chile Stew with chicken is what I remember most from my teenage years, my mom would make a big pot of it before she went out of town. I loved it, and she always made just enough to last until she returned home. My version somehow just doesn’t match up. When she makes it now, I am instantly transported to 1989.
