Down the road apiece

Sometimes San Antonio seems so far away, but it really isn't. The new Alameda Smithsonian branch is something we want to visit soon. I can't remember in which magazine I saw the picture of a red and yellow Q and Q fideos, supersized along the lines of a Warhold Brillo-box sculpture, and I can't find it on line, either, but I think it's a funny idea. There was a time when our H-E-B devoted more shelf space to fideos than to pasta of any other kind, including elbow macaroni and spaghetti. I find that most of the on-line mentions (and there seems to be a paucity) of sopa de fideo speak of chorizo and not ground beef. This may require more research!
