Did you know….
A common legend of its creation takes place at the Convent of Santa Rosa in Puebla early in the colonial period. Upon hearing that the archbishop was going to visit, the convent nuns went into a panic because they were poor and had almost nothing to prepare.
The nuns prayed and brought together the little bits of what they did have, including chili peppers, spices, day-old bread, nuts, and a little chocolate. They killed an old turkey, cooked it and put the sauce on top; the archbishop loved it.
When the nun was asked the name of the dish, she replied, “I made a mole.” Mole was the ancient word for mix; now this word mostly refers to the dish, and rarely is used to signify other kinds of mixes in Spanish. (wikipedia)

It’s Friday night and time to end the week with a bang! One of my favorite places to go for drinks and ridiculous tasty Spanish food is Cascal Restaurant in Mountain View, Ca.
I am one of those foodie types where I need a variety of different foods throughout the week. Journeying to the same part of the world of food two to three times a week is not my style so I’m always experimenting and dining on something new. I’ve learned in the past that when you want Mexican food you should find a good hole in the wall restaurant to go get it because that is where the best tasting food will be.
