While on paternity leave, I noticed Taqueria El Trompo in a little strip mall off of Harry Wurzbach and Austin Highway. However, it took me nearly seven months to stop in because - 1) I now have a toddler and a baby that take up a lot of time and 2) the taqueria is situated in that weird nook off of Austin Highway that’s a little difficult to get to. But when I was with a buddy in that area looking for lunch, I immediately knew where we’d go.

Verónica Castillo specializes in Trees of Life. The branches of her clay trees are not only ornamented with the usual leaves and flowers, but also singing birds, dancing dogs, and strolling guitarists may adorn the foliage. The Forest Hills Branch Library, 5245 Ingram Road, is featuring the intricate ceramic artwork of Castillo, a recipient of the prestigious National Endowment for the Arts National Heritage Fellowship, until March 15.

Back when I was young, I remember pretty much the only time you were given a bag or paper wrapping when you bought something in Mexico was if you purchased feminine hygiene products. I used to kid that the wrapping around your purchase was a dead giveaway that it was that time of the month. When we went to the market, we brought our own sturdy reusable bags made out of either ixtli or plastic, and for smaller purchases, it wasn’t a problem to carry them in our hands until we got home.
