I can close my eyes and see her standing there pouting at the gate of the preschool playground.  She has a  curly little head of brown hair pulled up tightly into a pony tail and her big brown eyes are filled with tears.  I will be dropping her off again, this time for college, but she won’t be the one crying.   “Maybe it’s payback time Louise”, that’s what she would say.

Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone
Only darkness every day
Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone
And this house just ain’t no home
Anytime she goes away
Anytime she goes away
Anytime she goes away
Anytime she goes away

And I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know,
Hey, I oughtta leave young thing alone
But ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone…

For the next 8 days I will be making her favorite meals (steak and chimichurri), going to the beach, watching all  her favorite shows, and wiping my tears when she isn’t looking – like right now.

I might be able to pull myself together by August 31st for the Hatch Chile Roast in Newport Beach, will I see you there?  I will be the one consoling myself with a Hatch Chile deep dish pizza.  Hatch Chilies are here today and gone tomorrow, so make sure you get yours! 

My Hatch Chile Chimichurri is a little different from your traditional Brazilian sauce.  I add cilantro & briny capers to the mix and this time I threw in 2 roasted hot Hatch Chilies for a little heat.  Chimichurri is herbaceous garlicky, tangy, and with the added flavor of Hatch Chilies you will find that this sauce isn’t for just meats.   I have been slathering it on everything – steak, veggies, and even eggs for breakfast.
