Packing again...

Yes, I am unpacking and packing up again for another trip and leaving in a few days. Will update as soon as I can on my next destination. In the meantime, please sit back, relax, and enjoy wome of the food I had in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

When I was south of the border in a lovely seaside town in Mexico, my favorite snack was homemade deep-fried tortilla chips with spicy salsa and guacamole. In fact I asked for guacamole on the side with every meal, and became a guacamole addict! And there was always somebody doing the same thing at the next table too. Maybe I should learn to speak softly...too late! Here's my favorite omelette lady/senora where I get my bacon and cheese omelette for the kids and me.

For our anniversary, we had lovely dinner at a table overlooking the beach just as the sun was setting.Hubs had his favorite chicken breast that came grilled with a creamy prosciutto sauce.I had the surf and turf on the menu that came with a 14 oz. prime rib, decent sized shrimps, veggies, and mashed potatoes.

Fried tacos at the pool. It came with four rolled-up chicken tacos that were fried and topped with red sauce, and came with refried beans, lettuce, salsa and guacamole.Kids enjoying lunch by the pool.Had a pistachios encrusted salmon one night at an Italian restaurant, and it was just okay. Hubs ordered beef tenderloin in a mushroom tequila sauce, and I tried a bit. It was very tasty. Unfortunately, I didn't get a good shot of it.
