Erin Go Bragh! This week St.Patrick’s Day is a taking a new turn because of the Coronavirus–no green river in Chicago, no St. Patrick’s Day parade, and, can you believe it, they’re closing down the bars in New York City! Well we still have have our traditional favorites. So we are posting the Latinopia exclusion recipe, Barbara Murray’s recipe on how to make Irish Jalapeno Soda Bread! Try this recipe out, its a keeper. Also, for those of you who have never heard of the St. Patrick’s Batallion, we are reposting an excerpt from Mark Day’s docu-drama about the historic batallion of Irish soldiers who decided to fight for Mexico instead of the United States during the Mexican American War of 1848.
Also this week, our regular blogger Salomon Baldenegro returns with his Political Salsa y Más blog. This week, he turns in attention inward and examines the notion of forgiveness. Take a listen and a lesson.
And last but least, we visit with acclaimed El Paso author Sergio Tronocoso as he reads from his latest book, ” A Peculiar Kind of Immigrant’s Son,” at a Flor y Canto gathering at the home of Michael and Barbara Sedano.
Enjoy your week on Latinopia!
