Saben que yo nací en México y la comida Mexicana … Whoops, there I go again. As some of you know, I was born in Mexico, probably a product of a puppy mill there and when I get excited, I pull a “Ricky Ricardo” and start barking in my native Spanish. What makes me excited? IT’S TACO DAY!
Before we start, Taco Day is bittersweet. Last year Kenzie joined me in tacos-that day would be his last full day before going to the bridge.
Kenzie was also big on keeping the pool monster at bay and this is for those who haven’t seen it.
This blog is dedicated to Kenzie and we know he reads it to keep up with what’s going on with us. It just had to be Kenzie who picked out Kaci and put us together even though she was miles away. Good job, Kenzie. We keep you on the masthead for your spirit.
After my pancreatitis episode in March, I’m on an extremely low fat diet. We’ve had to be creative with our tacos and Kaci has to have them low-fat also because it wouldn’t be fair to have her chow down on the real thing while I have to deal with forgeries. We get the absolutely necessaries for “tacos en el estilo nuevo por Kyla”.
First we have Mexican Chamoy sauce. It’s easy to get the authentic here-made in Mexico, not China. The orange thing on the right was made in our garden in the back yard. It’s a habañero pepper-sometimes even one is way too much. We can’t have a bland taco-nosiree.
For the inside, I put my favorite stuff-yes, you know, frozen green beans. Beans are very Mexican. The “shell” is a lettuce leaf. The presentation was magnifico
UPDATE My peeps are cheating on me. Look at what’s on the counter.
