Old School

My mom is a great cook, 
unlike me.
She likes to make things from scratch.
Even the process is 
old school.

As in making salsa.
She says that the salsa tastes better
when made in the molcajete.

A molcajete is a mortar carved out
of lava rock.  I have one,
it used to be hers.  I never use
it, it just sits on my kitchen bookshelf
looking pretty.

I don't know if the salsa tastes better when it's
made in the molcajete vs. a blender.
I just know my mom can make
a mean salsa, and gucacamole,
and tortillas, and enchiladas, and vegetable soup,
and posole, and...the list is endless.
