Happy Holidays from the Adobe Rose Inn
Make the holidays in Tucson unforgettable. Here are just two ideas for holiday memories.
El Nacimiento at Tucson Museum of Art
El Nacimiento is the mother of all nativity scenes has been a highlight of Tucson's Christmas season for over 30 years. Maria Luisa Tena created El Nacimiento in honor of a mother as a gift from her daughter. The family has lovingly staged this beautiful Christmas diorama for more than three decades. The traditional nativity is surrounded by over 800 figurines, depicting vignettes of life in a Mexican village, biblical characters and animals amid a natural setting.
It will be on display through March in a special room at La Casa Cordova at the Tucson Museum of Art. Admission is free.
Holiday Nights at Tohono Chul Park
A private park in north Tucson, Tohono Chul Park holds special evening holiday activities on December 4 and 5, 2009. The park is decorated with luminaries and fairy lights, and there is live music, activities for kids, and hot cider and cookies for everyone. Tohono Chul is place to buy Christmas ornaments!
Looking for something quick and easy to serve for breakfast during the holidays? Try this crustless quiche. Add a green salad and it becomes a luncheon treat.
½ cup milk
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. pepper
6 oz. thinly sliced, smoked salmon cut into strips
8 oz. cream cheese, cut into ½-inch cubes
½ TBS. fresh or dried dill
In a bowl, beat the eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Stir in the salmon and cream cheese. Pour into a 10-inch pie plate that has been sprayed with Pam. Sprinkle the dill over the top.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree F oven for 30 minutes, then lower the heat to 300 degrees and bake about 10 minutes longer or until the center is firm.
Serves 6-8. 6 oz. of crabmeat can be substituted for the salmon.
