New Mexico  pozole
New Mexico

“Where the Piñon Mesa rolls
And the campfire cures your woes
Watchin' the sly roadrunner flee
On the tail of an autumn breeze…

That's where you'll find me
Where the big back country lies
There the cowboy's free to ride
Out under New Mexico skies.”

  -- “Under New Mexico Skies” (New Mexico’s Official State Song)

“Dream as if you’ll live forever; eat cupcakes as if you’ll die today.”

“Coffee makes it possible to get out of bed. Cupcakes make it worthwhile.”
