A Mexican Flavored Feast!

We are feeling a bit neglectful of this space that we love to document and share about our life in food lately.

But we have just a few really good excuses. 

 Excuse #1: Sally Pork Chop 12 Weeks old

1) This adorable baby bully that we are devoting as much free time as we have to raising into a well behaved pup.

2) School starts this week and the past two weeks and the next 4 weeks are the busiest work weeks in our lives as educators. 

3) These two excuses are making us fairly well exhausted. Just to be plain honest.

But good food and fun are still part of this busy life as we can fit it in. And one such celebration of some good food was our Mexican flavored feast we put on last weekend to start our wind down of summer.

We kicked it off with one these super yummy Serrano Citrus Margaritas to help us have a little more fun while we were cooking.

Our first course was a take on the classic Caprese salad adjusted with Mexican inspired touches which turned into our Mexican Caprese Salad.

The next dish in my opinion was the absolute star of the feast. Baked Chile Relleno. Truly these were DELISH! (Sadly the photo does it absolutely NO justice. We need to remake them and reshoot the photo. Which we are happy to do again.)

Finally we made a Marinated Grilled Skirt Steak with grilled onions, jalapeños and peppers. 

We decided that to go along with our special feast we'd do a taste test comparison of 3 different Spanish Granache wines to pair with our Mexican flavors.

This feast really represents our most current cooking style. If it's grilled, roasted, spicy and full of flavor you can bet it's on our menu this week.

Come back this week and get the recipe for each of our dishes from our Mexican flavored feast.
