I use this recipe (without the fish and avocado): Tilapia with Tomatillos and Avocado filled with Maque Choux. I also use at least two colors of bell pepper, because it's pretty

Ain't that the truth. At least you got a good ride out of the whole deal.

Looks good. I agree about the bell peppers. When I make ratatouille, I usually use red, green, and yellow. I leave the skins on the zucchini and eggplant and it's really pretty. A friend made some with only green bell peppers and peeled both the zucchini and eggplant. The result was an ugly, grey mess.

YOU can call it "charming" because you ain't driving it! I know how all the roads in MA are basically paved Indian trails and cowpaths, and I'm not sure out "west" here the cowpaths have even been paved. But we weren't anywhere near Boston when we crossed from MA to RI.

I'm convinced that when they finally got around to "planning" Boston roads it was just a contest between MITs drunken engineering students and Northeastern's drunken engineering students.

I live in a PUD. I'm just amazed with what they've done, and yet the HOA restrictions don't seem very restrictive, mostly things I wouldn't do and things that would annoy them if neighbors did them, and my monthly is only $25 (we don't have pools or tennis courts here). Here in the Santa Clarita Valley everything seems well planned, much easier if you develop your city in the late 20th century vs. the 16th century.

About my only concession is that there are certain times of the day I have to avoid the freeway, but most of my travel is at right angles to the freeway so not a real problem. In fact even in off hours I rarely go more than 2-3 off ramps unless I'm headed for the San Fernando Valley, and even then at the right time of the day it's virtually effortless.
