Makebruncheggs 2
Spice up your brunch with these egg dishes inspired by Mexican cuisine
 
Eggs, they're the superstars of your fridge.
 
Delicious on their own, or the perfect addition to a salad, skillet or even breakfast tacos, their versatility makes the possibilities truly endless.
 
And as families today are choosing fresher, unique ingredients to inspire their own ethnic dishes at home, eggs are a perfect choice. They are especially prevalent in Hispanic cuisine - and are a celebrated ingredient in a variety of Latin dishes from around the world, such as traditional Spanish flan, to Brazilian feijão tropeiro to Mexican huevos rancheros. It's no surprise that eggs pair beautifully with the brightly-colored, bold ingredients often found in Latino cuisine.

Museum of Ventura County Seriously Mishandles Asian Pacific Exhibition

Museum of Ventura County

Tiger Huang, a long-time artist of considerable standing in the Ventura arts community presented a very special and significant installation piece at the Museum of Ventura County in conjunction with its “I Want the Wide American Earth: An Asian Pacific American Story” this last weekend [18-19 June].   It was a beautiful installation, including a well-done, mesmerizing sound-scape.

Trouble is, and this is just the beginning of the trouble, Tiger’s name and the piece itself are not  mentioned anywhere in the Museum’s website or write-up of the exhibition. This is not to mention that though it was a major piece, and certainly time-consuming to produce and install, it was only up for 48 hours.  The piece is one of the most significant installation pieces any artist has ever done in Ventura, yet,  by the time Thursday rolls around, as far as the Museum goes, it might as well not have existed at all.
