Mi Suegra

Mi Suegra

Soco can taste the difference
Waters, well water
Which well, rain water
Creek, varanca
Rio y pozo, who’s
Well even

She knows who
Raised this pig
Meat is no sirve’
She says Augustine
Knows nothin bout
Nothin especially

About vsvevg

Hello, I'm Abby Smith. I started this blog in 2010 to write about the pursuit of a self-sustainable life in rural Mexico. In 2015, my then-husband and I moved to Nicaragua, where we created a successful farm-to-table and in-house charcuterie program for a high-end beach resort. In 2022, with mad butchery and cheese-making skills under my belt, I started a sustainable food systems consulting business. Happily, I also have more time for my first love-- writing about food and the complexities of the simple life.
