Southwestern Turkey

Cilantro, chipotle in adobo sauce - two ingredients that immediately attract me to a recipe. So, when I saw the recipe for Southwestern Turkey with Spicy Gravy on Recipe Lion's website, I knew I had to try it. It was absolutely the most delicious and flavorful Thanksgiving turkey we had ever eaten.

You can find the Southwestern Turkey Recipe here.
Aarrggghh - I need help!!! How do you wonderful bloggers take care of your home and family, have hobbies and maintain a beautiful blog complete with photos, recipes, giveaways, etc. There are just not enough hours in the day for me and I only sleep 5-6 hours at night.

We have been trying to save $$$ and the first thing we cut out was eating out. That was the ultimate sacrifice for me. While I love to cook, I love eating out more - no clean up, you know.

We did make it to La Hacienda on North Broadway in Wichita on Saturday afternoon. No photos - we had Foxy & Lucy with us and those dogs love tacos. We had to hurry and eat before they grabbed our food. Too cold to eat at the picnic table outside. Doug had tacos - barbacoa and al pastor. I had the Burrito al Pastor which was incredible.

One of these days, I'll get organized and learn how to blog like a pro and will have a million followers. I'm such a dreamer.

Another Delicious Fish

Wichita is teeming with Mexican restaurants, and all I can say to that is HOORAY. I would eat it for every meal if I could. Last night we tried a month old restaurant on South Hillside called Tienda Rochell. Their menu consists of the standard tacos, burritos, chile rellenos, tortas, sopes and gorditas.

But they also have some special items like Chile Verde, Chile Rojo, and WHOLE FRIED FISH (my favorite).

Sadly, I forgot my camera, but we will be eating there often and I will have pictures next time. Finally a good Mexican restaurant nearby. I'll still be driving to North Wichita for my favorites, like Garcia's, Mr. Taco and 21st Street Burgers (Yes, it's a Mexican restaurant that serves burgers - probably just so they wouldn't have to buy a new sign).

Imagine my surprise when I got an email from Eileen at CSN today telling me she would like to help me promote my blog and CSN by conducting a giveaway of a kitchen or home decor item.

My blog is horrible! I have no idea what I'm doing, I need "Blogging for Dummies" or a tutor. I would love to have a sweet layout with a Mexican Food background - but where do you find that? And I want a blog roll, and I want to know how to blog about someone's giveaway.

I am going to take some photos of my beautiful antique Mexican dishware and post some of those this weekend, if I can figure it out. And hope we aren't too busy dealing with teenage angst or doing yardwork that we can go out to eat some of the Mexican food we are MAD for and I can review it and post some pictures. We haven't been to Garcia's in Wichita for a while, and that is where I had my first taste of Mexican food outside of Mexico, thanks to my dear friend Melissa.

Next weekend is my youngest nephew's wedding so I'll be seeing my niece, Stephanie, who has a blog. Maybe she can help me out and one day soon, this will look like a REAL blog.
