Recipe for the Best Mexican Lunch

Start with a handful of friends and place in a beautiful, sunny kitchen.
Add a touch of cutesy cooking tools.
Throw in large amounts of homemade goodness
and a dash of "from-scratch" cooking skills.
Mix in a fair amount of colorful food and equally colorful personalities.

Roll into a long, lingering meal.
Spice it up with a nice cup of fresh Tarragon tea.
And finally, top it off with a spontaneous, non-mexican, banana and ginger
with vanilla ice-cream dessert.
I swear, there was a fiesta in my mouth.
That was grrreat. :D

Recipe narrative idea borrowed from Lei, as well as the camera. ;P

Jonsi - Boy Lilikoi

Jonsi Birgisson is the lead singer of one of my favorite bands, Sigur Ros who is famous for his use of a cello bow on guitar and falsetto voice.

Boy Lilikoi is included in Jonsi's first solo album, "Go" which was released last April 5, 2010. The album contains 9 songs written by Jonsi during his years in Sigur Ros. He co-produced the album together with partner, Alex Somers and Peter Katis (The National, Interpol).

Hearing Jonsi sing in English is quite unusual but definitely a joy. He's just plain genius and this song is just plain perfection. Makes us embrace again that childlike wonder and endless fun. Such a cheerful song. Such a fun and playful album.

By the way, a lilikoi is a Hawaiian term for passion fruit which looks like the sun and grows where surfing is all very good - South America, Australia, Hawaii. Jonsi also stated in an audio interview from a radio station that the title means "like nature boy." Awwee, so there you go! :)
