Mexican Dinner

by - September 16, 2011

It was our 177 monthsary 2 days ago. Take your time to calculate it to years hehehe! And I see to it that every 14th of the month, we will celebrate it in a special way. I thought, spending our 177th month feels like our 177th day together. It's still gigglish, so fresh and we're still so in-love. The spark never ends. We might have little problems now and then but the love kept us alive and kicking. I am grateful to God that he gave me the person who's really meant for me. I love you heaps Bhe!

So, enough of the drama and the "love" thingy and let's divert ourselves to food. I prepared Mexican dishes for dinner that night.

To start, we had Quesadillas. Sweet and soft flour tortillas with heaps of tasty cheese melts as a filling. Mmmmm, yum! The kids enjoyed it.


And we also had Nachos and Chili Beans. I used Doritos Nachos then topped it with Chili Beans and grated tasty cheese. I made two bowls separately; one with chili beans and the other one is with plain beef mince and beans for the kids. This is a hit too!


For the main course, I made Chocolate Chicken Empanadillas Mole. I was inspired to do this when my friend from Aussie and her Australian partner came to visit us here in New Zealand. They love Mexican dishes and as a part of their tour is to try and eat in a Mexican restaurant. My friend Jane had this Chocolate Chicken Empanadillas Mole and I got intrigued of how it tastes like. It's actually good. If you love chocolate that much, this is a good try. It's spicy and sweet at the same time. Yum!


And we also have tried Tex Mex Burritos. Yes, I made lots of food that day haha! My daughter Kiara enjoyed this so much that she ate one jumbo burrito that night. It's a combination of beef mince and spicy sausage with spices and fresh lettuce.


Did you know that I declare "MY CAKE DAY" every 14th of the month. This is the day I bake a cake to celebrate it with family. It's a way of thanksgiving to appreciate that I have my family with me to share the cake with. So, for dessert, I made Tres Leches Cake or Three Milk Cake. This is a total hit!!! I didn't see the cake when I woke up the next morning! Totally delicious!


I will post the recipes of these 5 great Mexican foods in the next few days. Thanks for reading my post and have a nice day!
