chile roasting

There are all kinds of good reasons to be delighted to have Devin Griffiths as my new colleague - but let's foreground the fact that he and Meg understand the importance of early fall chile roasting.  Roasting, and then peeling, and de-seeding, and wrapping in a plastic bag.  Or, better still, wrapping in a tortilla, with some queso fresco, and guacamole ... This was, indeed, a superb pre-semester party, on a rooftop in downtown LA (oddly enough, we ignored the suggestion that we bring swimsuits, since I don't think that we possess any, but there was a pool on hand, too) - in other words, a perfect melding of New Mexico and SoCal.
