Best Places Revisited

Article excerpt

When I first glanced at "The Best Places to Live" (January, page 66), I was excited to see a Wyoming town included! However, upon reading the article, I found you had simply made an error on your map (page 73), placing Gunnison, Colorado, in Wyoming. Perhaps no one from Wyoming wrote in to nominate a town.



EDITOR'S NOTE: We're sorry about the map. We received several nominations for Wyoming towns, including this one from Gary Rimington: "If I could move anywhere in the West, it would be a small town where kids are still quiet in the library, the sky explodes with stars every night, and gardens are full of vine-ripe 'Big Boy' tomatoes. Hey, somebody pinch me; I just described family life in Laramie, Wyoming." Stay tuned.

I was very surprised to find a picture of my home (above) in Prescott, Arizona, in "Living Your Fantasy" (page 73). That's a great title, as that is just what my husband and I have done with the purchase of this Victorian home built in 1893. We are living our dream in a wonderful house in a wonderful town.



You left out the best of the best-Pacific Grove, California. Paradise, heaven, and a little bit of home all rolled into one magnificent town. But don't tell anyone. It's a secret!



Smoothies energize the day

Re: "Smooth Morning," January, page 53. Smoothies are a great way to start your day! As a regular smoothie drinker, I was a little surprised that you left out some of my key ingredients: Rice or soy protein powder, vitamin C, fiber, and spirulina or other "green" powders are a must for my blender. Not only do they give me a great boost of energy and keep me feeling full for hours, but all are really important for a healthy diet.



Prime-rib enchiladas

Your recipe for Turkey Enchiladas with Sour Cream (January, page 80) was a perfect inspiration! I had just enough leftover prime rib from our Christmas dinner to make steak enchiladas. I also used non-fat sour cream to lighten it up and a small can of diced green chilies for an extra flavor boost. What a quick, easy dish to prepare.



Delicious holiday

Thank you very much for making our holiday delicious. I made so many recipes from the December issue. I loved the Quick Chicken Cassoulet (page 105; I used leftover turkey instead). For Christmas Eve, I made the Salt-and-Pepper Cheese Puffs (page 92), the Butter Lettuce Salad with Walnuts and Grapes (page 92), and the Spinach Timbale (page 106) as part of our menu. …
