La Cocina Mexicana

Buenos días!  Good morning!

This spicy fiesta set by Dust Bunny is so close to home that I could probably talk at length about each piece.  The way we make and eat it, but I’m not going to bore you though!  I’ll just share that while familiar with each dish — the ones that are more of a staple with my family are the tortillas and tacos. Freshly made warm flour tortillas are the best and with morning food even better.  Highly recommend them filled with cooked egg (hard scrambled), or potato with egg or egg and chorizo.  You get the idea?  I like a warm tortilla just smeared with butter.  Not a morning person, then try chicken, beef or fish tacos with either flour or corn tortillas.  Personally, a piece of fajita fills me up good.

The grilled corn and the empanadas are typically eaten at special occasions or large family gatherings. The grilled corn smothered with mayonnaise, lime juice, chili powder and then crumbled cotija cheese is something you ought to try once! It’s delicious!  The rest is more your snack or party type finger foods with the exception of just the guacamole, which we eat alongside other foods.

I’m also showing past releases, which fit my theme so get all the details below.

Buen provecho!

Ice cream treats

I love ice cream, except it doesn’t always like me with having lactose intolerance.  One of my all time favorites is Chunky Monkey from Ben & Jerry’s. It has banana ice cream with chunks of fudge and walnuts.  The combination is super yummy. You should try it and check out everything shown!

Without great solitude no serious work is possible…

Title by Picasso

My inventory is bulging at the seams and at some point I need to take some time off just to do a thorough job of cleaning it up.  Some time last year, at year end, I lost  90% of my 2016 inventory and that helped a lot in bringing it down some as it was a considerable amount of lost inventory.  The sad thing is I couldn’t even tell you what a third of the stuff was in that 2016 folder.  My blog helped me a lot to figure out what I lost, but there is always so much I don’t blog that I purchase on whim in those moments of.. “oh I like this” and it somehow ends up in my inventory.

So heads up I’ll be taking a break in the very near future.  Today I’m showcasing the arcade gacha set by 22769.  I believe it’s an exclusive to the arcade and will not be sold once the arcade is over, so it’s a great time to visit and shop and get these great pieces of decor into your inventory.  Dahlia has the La Dolce Vita set for this last round of Deco(c)rate and showing some past releases by Ariskea that you can find at the mainstore.

Enjoy the weekend!
