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!

Surfing through life

Sometimes the title of my post comes during the scene prep and at other times it’s when I finish my post and I do a preview to make sure it looks decent enough.  This was the latter.  It’s the first thing that came to mind seeing the surfboard. I’m learning to go with it.  It fits. Right?

Showcasing the Slater set by Fancy Decor in collaboration with Commoner for this round of Uber.  Some fantastic pieces in the set, so I hope you go check it out.

Enjoy!

Hello everyone.  I know my title won’t make sense, but the name holds a very special meaning to me and part of my history here in Second Life.  It’s also the name of the constellation wall decor by Cheeky Pea, available as part of a gacha in this current round of Lootbox.  I’m showcasing this amazing Island Resort set by unKindness, available now at Collabor88 and then two adorable decor sets by Ariskea, which are at events as well.  Just peek down below for all the information.

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!

The smells of home

I’m particular to soft and subtle kinds of smells and not those over powering smells when it comes to scents in sprays or perfume.  Strong smells typically give me a headache right away. I can’t be around the smell of bleach for long before I start to feel nauseous.  When it comes to flowers I like the scent of the magnolia flower and keep away from eucalyptus plants as that smell isn’t my favorite though I like the  look of the plant.

I know that all has nothing to do with my picture except my title.  Today it’s a little bit of country rustic. I’m showcasing the Nettle Farms sets by [noctis] at the Vintage Fair. The vintage oven by ChiMia can also be found at the event.  I also used items from Serenity Style’s kitchen gacha currently at The Liaison Collaborative and also using her county spring retreat set. The chair and the metal pail bucket with flowers is by Zen Creations.

Details as always below.

Enjoy!
