Small world. I ate in some Mexican restaurant in Albuq back in 67-8, but I don't remember the building. Unforgetable food, however! And I'm sure I ate at Felaine's hot dog stand back in the late 60's, early 70's. I know I ate many a "der Weinerschnitzel" (sp?)!

Sk8eycat, I visited that hot dog-shaped hot dog stand in 1988.  (Either that or there happened to be another one like it in the L.A. area.)  I was in L.A. with friends that year for a wedding.

Felaine, the nearest I can tell is that is that it is under the same management as it was in 1986. As to when it was originally opened, I honestly don't know. New Mexico is the only state with an official, state approved, question. Red or green? Referring to the chiles you want with your food. I've been there a few times, and my response is always the same. Green.

Here is the place.

Pat, do you know when the Owl Cafe was built?  It could NOT have been there in 1957...the only time I was ever in Albuquerque, or I would have sniffed it out.  Or someone in our company would have.

Most of those kitschy buildings were originally built either during the roaring 20s, or during the Depression.  There used to be a hot dog stand here in Burbank that was shaped like a hot dog on a bun.  A real stayed open, under different owners, till the 1980s, and I have NO idea why it had no protection as a historical site.

In Spain in the 1960's I ate a very wonderful pea or bean soup that was absolutely yummie. I didn't speak the language so never got the recipe. Over the years I've asked many Mexican families and again had no luck. Any ideas? This was no ordinary bowl of beans. It was a bean soup.

I love cream of chicken soup!!! Look forward to your posting some recipes Pat.

A couple of years ago, I had one of the best bowls of cream of chicken soup I've ever tasted. It was at the Owl Cafe in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on historic Route 66. Amazing place, in the style of a 1950's diner. And, in keeping with the 'kitsch' theme of roadside attractions, the building is actually in the shape of an owl.

The soup was loaded with green chiles, which I happen to love. I've found some similar recipes on line. So, I'm going to try and cobble something together this weekend. Let you know how it comes out.

Looks great, Patricia, and sounds very tasty.

If anyone is interested, I've posted the recipe for Champagne Ice here:

Oooh, looks delicious! I still have some frozen shrimp I bought in Florida last Jan.

Back to berries: I have a three year old boysenberry bush with berries for the first time--just enough to tease the taste buds. And while I pick wild blackberries, I prefer raspberries (esp. red which I grow) over them. Blackberries seem to have a wide variety of flavors--from sweet to bitter to tart. One still cannot beat blueberries!

My one pan dinner of chicken breast, prawns, potatoes, carrots, & peas. Didn't have any bell peppers or they would have been there too.
