This weekend my sister and I visited my grandma and she made us some simple beans, potatoes and string beans. I know it kinda looks like mush but it's soooo delicious! I think the trick is that she uses extra oil (olive oil so it must not be that bad :-) Then she heats up tortillas like there's no tomorrow! And we gotta eat em' to make her happy, no problem with me!!

So this may not be fancy food, but a delicious, crunchy, and greasy tortilla stuffed with potato, cheese, lettuce and green salsa hits the spot!! And this is actually from a lil' ghetto place in Norwalk called Alberts! I give them props for these tacos!

It seems I've been eating more than doing make-up, so here's my make-up look for today ... I'm lovin' Goldenrod by MAC ... For my lips I used the Viva Glam Cyndi and Stila Cranberry lipglaze ... So this is me bored at work and also my pal and I chillin' at lunch time ...

This was my plate!! Soooo good. Beans and tortillas and eggs! What more can I ask for? Everything was delish! The tortillas that my eggs were laying on were different. I think one was made with nopales and the other one was an orange color which was made with some other kind of vegetable I think. And that extra folded tortilla was a quesadilla (Carb city heaven!)
Went to a small restaurant in Bell, CA this weekend with my pal. It's called La Casita Mexicana, and it was featured in a Bobby Flay Chile Relleno throwdown! I have not had the chile rellenos yet, but I will soon! This is a pretty traditional beaner dish. It's chicken with a sauce made from toasted pumpkin seeds, tomatillos, and some kind of chile (can be spicy or not). This was my friend's plate, but I tried the sauce and it was pretty tasty :-)

My friend and I went to a lil' restaurant near work for lunch today and enjoyed some crepes. One lunch crepe and this delicious dessert crepe. It was filled with chocolate pudding and bananas, drizzled with strawberry sauce and topped with cool wHip! F'en delicious!

So it's Cinco de Mayo and I was craving some kind of Mexican dish. So I'm thinking, enchiladas? All I had was leftover soy meat (thats right, soy meat people, try it sometime its good! and it doesn't gross me out when I cook it :-) Anyway, I had some leftover soy meat, some lovely squash that I cut in small pieces, cooked with butter, salt, pepper and some Goya seasoning. I add the soy meat and made a squash and soy meat mixture. Heated up some good ol' El Pato sauce (if you don't like spicy buy some Las Palmas enchilada sauce, it's white man approved). Pato sauce will make your booty burn (thats right I said it! but it's worth it!) So I put some of my mixture and rolled it up in some tortillas, poured the Pato sauce over the tortillas (one yellow can, and one green can, both about 7 oz). And with my luck we didn't have shredded cheese so I just used some sandwich type slices of Mozzarella and Provolone and layered it on top, put it in the oven at 350 for about 10 minutes and tada! Looks like lasagna I know, but nope, its tortillas! :-D
