We have had so many good meals here but every now and then, we get in a rut. Same meals repeated a little too frequently so....we tire of them. For a treat, and something new, we met up with the kids on Sunday evening at a local Mexican restaurant, El Jalisco. Something a little different - it was fun.
This may be a chain place, I don't know, but there are a few locations in the Tallahassee area. I love the fish tacos and the taco salad. And the platters with enchiladas and burritos. And guacamole! So, I am obviously a fan. Margaritas were avoided but we did have beer....not a huge setback. No photos from the dinner, I left my phone in the car.
Our granddaughter was super cute and fun that night so I do wish I had a photo of her. She was telling her grandfather about pirates and how her cat was a lazy pirate. Fun age and she's full of imagination.
On to what I cooked this week. A Spinach and Ricotta Pie. New recipe.
I'm fortunate to have so many wonderful cookbooks on the shelf (more than some folks, but I'm sure fewer than others :-) . Moosewood Cookbooks are never disappointing, especially if you want to find a meatless meal plan.
This is a recipe I had never tried before and I can say - oh yeah - we will have it again. Very good, A+ to Mollie Katzen.
New meal plans are being sought for next month. When the weather warms we want to sit outside for dinner, maybe have some wine, watch the birds fight at the feeders. This meal would actually be good in warm weather too as the ingredients are so light. Note that I did not smear sour cream over the top, it was optional. If I had you couldn't see the lovely colors from the spinach and nutmeg and cheese!
