Tortellini de Queso
I would like to thank all the members of Creative Arts
who came to our first event of this year on the 17 of February,
it was a success and I think everyone enjoyed it.
Our appreciation to Gerry Guerin for
lending her lovely home and garden. Congratulations
to Harriet G. Guerrero and her committee, they worked very hard and with
enthusiasm. The music was quite
happy and lively. John Florida supervised the bar and his lovely wife Lia organized the “botanas”,
( by the way they were delicious) , she checked on the food table
constantly and made sure we got
plenty to eat. Thanks Lia.
Max and Carmela were of
enormous help to us,
they certainly do have knowledge
and experience in organizing events! Thank
you for your cooperation. All I can
say is that thanks to everyone working as a team, the mixer was very pleasant. Welcome each and everyone who
re-registered and took advantage of last year’s
It was very pleasant
having Nicholas Watson
at our event, I had an opportunity to talk to him briefly and
he reconfirmed his offer to have
Creative Arts use the Jardin Borda for
its events, so we made an appointment to meet with him, talk and
check calendars in order to
take advantage and use
that beautiful place. If you
have some ideas and suggestions please
let us know, since it is you we would like to please.
Pacho Lane, was also among our guest, he is a professor
UAEM, (the University of the
State of Morelos), and a filmmaker on traditional music and culture.
He talked about an actor friend of his, Stuart Cox, who has played
the part of Quetzalcoatl in English in Tepoztlan.
The whole thing sounds very interesting. John Florida and Jane Jackter
will find out all about costs and dates, maybe we can bring
him to Cuernavaca .

Mensaje del Presidente
Mi agradecimiento a todos los socios de Artes
Creativas que con su participación a nuestro primer evento del año, el
día 17 de febrero, contribuyeron para que fuera todo un éxito.
Muchas gracias a nuestra anfitriona Gerry Guerin por permitirnos hacer
uso de su lindo jardín. Harriet G. Guerrero y su comité
trabajaron arduamente en la organización del evento, felicidades!.
La música estuvo muy alegre. John
Florida supervisó el bar y su querida esposa Lia estuvo a cargo de las
botanas (que a propósito estaban deliciosas) y siempre al tanto de que
no faltara nada, gracias Lia.
you have dry skin… The Cheapest and best thing to use… Is simple ole
vegetable shortening. What you are
really trying to do is keep the moisture in… You can’t add it to your skin.
Shortening does the job without all the fancy perfumes etc.
Birthdays in March
We learned after Publication that Claudia Pavon has passed away. We apoligize for listing her in the birthday column, but we didn’t know.
Need a Map??
have been looking for quite a few months for a map of Morelos.
No one seemed to have any.
I was talking to Harriet Goff and she suggested I visit the Convention
So I went and they gave me a very nice map of the State.
Free.. The office is located on the second floor of a building near the
theater on Benito Juarez blvd.
You enter through the beauty salon.
(I know but you will understand when you get there)
They also have a nice bi-lingual web site with some maps online. www.morelosvisit.com
The Board of Directors meeting will be as scheduled on March 7th at 6 in the evening.
March 25th .......... the Creative Arts Children's art fair
April ....... Showtime Chaired by Pat Arenas ??
May (Tentative) looks like Quetzalcoatl by Pancho
May (tentative) Mothers day Dinner
The club seems to have gotten over the crisis of not having a president. Yolanda is doing a sensational job. And we seem to have a very active and enthusiastic board of Directors. I see lots of good things starting to happen. A list of the officers is on the main club page I didn't see any sense in redoing it here.
But we still need some volunteers to help design and deliver the newsletter. This will only take a few hours once a month. Also if you have some time and would like to help with one specific event (either organize it or help someone else) please call or email Yolanda and talk to her. We will find something for you to do. We need a few more warm bodies. The more people that work, the less work there is!

This page was all formatted with some comments by a grumpy old Granny about the Gammy awards but she caught heck from her daughter and said “Please don’t print it”. So I am filling up this space with this marvelous recipe. This is one of my favorite recipes.. And its so simple it should be a crime to use it. <grin>
I love almost anything with Tomatoes and cream so on a recent trip to the El Gallinero restaurant I noticed they had Tortellini with Tomato Sauce and Cream. This is not noted as a prime Italian Restaurant but I thought I would try it. When it was served it didn’t look at all what I was expecting just some Tortellini on a plate with some tomato sauce and a glob of Cream in the middle. But once I started eating I was hooked. It was very good…
Visiting the gift shop afterwards I noticed they were selling little boxes of Tortellini… And, here I thought the Tortellini was so good it had to be hand made. Visiting Commercial Mexicana I found the same stuff. It’s a bright Yellow box called Barilla Tortellini de Queso. Its normally 28 peso’s but its on sale quite often and you can stock up for around 20 peso’s. It’s a very small box, but it expands a bit in the boiling water and you can feed 3 from one box. This is sooo much better then the fresh stuff you buy at Sams Club or the market.
You will need a box of Tortellini, a can of Hunts Spaghetti Sauce (or you can use traditional Rago if you like), and some cream.
Boil some water….
And put the Spaghetti sauce on the stove.
( don’t doctor it up,, its better plain ole Tomatoes)
When the Tortellini is ready (10 minutes) put it on individual plates, pour the spaghetti sauce over it and then drizzle generously some cream over the top of the sauce.
That’s it… Simple, inexpensive, and something you
can impress your friends with…. Try it…
