    Happy Birthday, Knocka!

    Some celebratory sopaipillas for you!




    You'll have to make them yourself, though (this from the web):
    New Mexican Traditional Reservation Recipes

    Sopaipillas are an incredibly light, puffy fry bread. To eat, poke or tear them open and spread with honey or honey butter. Though recipes vary, the one thing to keep in mind is that they must be eaten immediately while steaming hot! (One reason why it's rare to find a good sopaipilla in restaurants.)

    2 cups flour
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    2 tablespoons lard or vegetable shortening
    1/2 cup lukewarm water
    shortening or oil for frying

    Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Work the lard and water in to make a soft dough. Cover and leave in refrigerator until chilled. Roll out to 1/4-inch thickness on a floured surface, then cut into 3-inch squares or similar-sized triangles (about a 4 1/2-inch square, cut diagonally). Deep fry a few at a time at 400F degrees until light golden brown, turning once. Drain on paper towels.
    [my comments - bite off a corner and pour honey inside; you can sprinkle the outside with cinnamon sugar or leave it plain for that traditional taste; oil has to be hot before frying - if they don't pop up, the oil isn't hot enough]

    Smile Happy Birthday Knocka!

    I hope you have a Wonderful Birthday.

    If my computer skills were better I would send you a cake or some flowers but alas all I have are good wishes on your special day.

    I love the talent of the twelevers.

    Thank you for the musical greeting, sluggy. I like the footwork of the camels.

    Those sopaipillas look delicious, nodon. I'll remember that one-a-day dinner. Thank you. It was thoughtful of you to include the recipe.

    I like the pukeko, Sue. It must be looking for a ponga tree. Thank you.

    Thank you, anneiam. Good wishes are one of the best gifts to receive on a birthday to make it wonderful.

    You are right, corgi. My birthday was yesterday for me here at home, but I'm enjoying having my birthday continue longer. Just the right size of cake too for all the candles I need . Thank you.

    Thank you, Holli, for your shower of wuv. Now I know why corgi chose that cake - who knows what might happen if I try to blow out the candles.
    Thank you for the fairy as well. I'm feeling quite spoilt.
