|Earl Grey Infused Cream Cake - Satura Bakery, Los Altos|
Today...which is Sunday, and technically, Frida Kahlo's birthday, I decided to make some Mexican food. This food stuff is just a teaser for tomorrows Frida Kahlo reveal. There's a handful of sewists participating, so don't forget to checkout the Google Plus Community site HERE.
Back to the food, I don't really know how authentic it all is, but I know that I'm not a big fan of the restaurant cooking here in California. I prefer eating Mexican food inside the home's of friends or my friend's parents. I have been spoiled since childhood I guess.
After a long hiatus from cooking any Mexican food...I drummed up a few dishes today. But before dinner, we decided to have dessert. (See slice of cake above. Yum.) Hey...didn't you know that the best time to have dessert is before dinner?
|Everything homemade and organic.|
On the menu from the top, clockwise:
- Garlic bok choy (Hey, there are Asians in Mexico too.)
- Tomato, onion, cilantro, and lime salsa
- Chipotle lamb stew (in the center)
- Handmade corn tortillas
- Fresh limes
- Spanish rice
- Refried Beans
- Sadly, the avocados are missing from photo.
Don't forget to check back at midnight, Pacific Time, to see the Frida post!!! Happy eating, sewing, and dreaming of flowers and chocolate!
