  7. 1 tomato minced and diced
  8. A dash of freshly grated black pepper.

  2. Add juice of second lime and then salt to taste. …

  4. Serve with your favorite tortilla chips for a dip, or use with your favorite Mexican dish.
Chef’s Tip The easiest guacamole: Take 2 ripe avocados add juice of one lemon immediately to prevent browning, and mixed in your favorite already made salsa.  if there is a 99c store in  your neighborhood, they offer a very good salsa, and you have the choice of regular or spicy, use the one to your preference. Enjoy For healthier chips Buy store tortillas, cut like  you would a pizza. Place the tortillas pieces on a flat oven baking tray and bake at 450o for 10 to 12 minutes (check often not to burn.)

Marlon Brando Extravagant dinner

That was something, special when Marlon profess his devotion for French wines. “I heard through the grapevines––There is a well supplied cellar in this joint.”

“Indeed, we have a great selection.” I stand up from the armchair of the small office reserved for the chef. “Do you want a tour?”

“Indeed, every time I did come up to visit Michael I was told there was no wine. When did that cellar came to life?”

“It has been there since day one. I am not sure why you where told NO Wine here at the ranch? Maybe because Michael doesn’t drink any wine?”

“Let’s not waste anytime wondering about what could have been or not. Show me the way––Can’t wait.”

I lead the way to the cellar, passing the rose garden and through the arcades. “I came many time to play with those games while visiting, never knew about the cellar.” Marlon is now all excited about the discovery to come.

“Those are the steps, here at the end of the room. The cellar is down below.”

“Holly smoke, I never thought of going down those steps. It was always dark––No light.”

“Be careful, hold on tot he hand rail. don’t pay attention to the ghosts––they are armless.”

“The ghosts, armless…, what kind of bull shit are you talking about?”

“The ranch is build on ancient Indian cemetery. Some souls have not been able to leave, still looking for a way to the pearly gate.”

Read the full story in our special “Extravagant Marlon Brando’s Dinner.” which includes the menu and all the recipes to each of the courses of this Extravagant Dinner.

Clint worries

Clint walks back and forth anxiously from the louvers in the kitchen to his room.

“What’s with him?” Ask Sophie.

“Don know…, He looks worried. Since he received the box from DSL.”

“What do you think is in the box?” Sophie’s hands swirl around without any purpose for trying to answer the mystery question.

“It has to be important. Why would he be so nervous if it was a stamp collection?”

“Drug? Wha d’ ya think?”

“My guess is has to do with money, somehow––Big money.”

“Why money? He gets his from check coming from Switzerland. We always cash those for him.”

“This time it’s different. The box made him paranoid.”

“Well…, I have an idea––”

“What’s the smell? What’s burning?”

“Darn it…, My Cock Au Vin!”

Extract from the novella CLINT the 5th novella of “Bonjour Never Land.”

The Pink China

Sophie has been working all morning in the kitchen.

“It smells good in here.” I say.

“Make sure the have the maids use the pink china for tonight’s dinner.”

“A special request?”

“Yes, Michael has made a point for the pink china.”

“His favorite date will be here.”

“Favorite…, no way he can’t stand her.”

“She has always been part of his youth from way back then…, from high school.”

“I heard him and David Gest in the lobby talking. Michael was adamant to not even come to the ranch when she comes.”

“Quite a change, from the norm. He used to think that Brooke Shields was his best friend.”

I move toward the pan on top of the stove.

“Keep your fingers out of my food––Out, go take a walk.” Sophie waves a wooden spon over my head––

Is this all a dream?

 

Sophie drives the Mercedes with a sure hand among the ritzy neighborhood of Bel Air. The electric gate opens, she pulls up to the space marked Guests.

“What’s the matter with you?” She asks leaning toward Pierre.

“I don know. Things…, You know.”

“No time to reminisce about spilled milk. Get a hold of yourself. They are waiting for us.”
