A Little Foretaste of the Feast to Come

A Very Important Historic Date: March 1, 2009:
Meera's First Chips & Guac !!!!!!!

Our current favorite weekend lunch spot is Chipotle. The whole family loves that place. Braydon and I each get a carnitas burrito, fully loaded. Kyle gets a "burrito bowl" with carnitas, black beans, rice, cheese, pico de gallo, and sour cream. Owen gets a size large cheese quesadilla. And the whole family gets chips & guac to share. Saturday was a big huge day for me because I had the pleasure and honor of introducing my one and only daughter to chips & guac!!! Some readers who know me IRL (in real life) will understand what a serious big deal this is. Some readers who know me IRL know my love of chips & guac. Some readers who know me IRL can imagine how exciting this beautiful moment was for me. Some readers who know me IRL understand the importance of Meera learning to love chips & guac. And yes!!!!!!! She liked the chips & guac (a good, good, good sign!). Here are my boys, witnessing their sister's momentous occasion:

P.S.

This post will serve as a little appetizer for what is brewing on this here blogspot!!!!!...

...drum roll please...

Coming next week: FOOD WEEK on the J-M BLOG!!!

That is so cool!

We have a great restaurant here in Buffalo where they bring the guac makings to your table. You choose what you want them to put in it. It's then made fresh at your table as you watch. Soooo good.

Can't wait for next week's food week.

Chipotle is similar to Qdoba's, right?? Boy, we miss that yummy food here in Chile (although we have many yummy things here too!)

We have a Chipotle here in Greensboro, NC as well!! I've never been, so I'll have to try it, because I love chips & guac.

PS. I did not get a chance to comment on your last post, but I fully support you in moderating your comments by not allowing anonymous posters. You are an amazing, A-M-A-Z-I-N-G mother, and you can see it in your boys' smiles, in Meera's eyes, and in the love you share with them and Braydon every day.

Actually, I'm about to do a presentation on Interracial/Transnational Adoption, and I would love to use your blog to show the class... if that's alright with you!

Much love-
Kristen

I can't wait for food week since I have a food blog! If you're ever in Atlanta please let me know & I can recommend some great restaurants for you. Glad Meera was able to enjoy her chips & guac for the first time!

We have a place called Chipotle here too. Friends of our have went many times, but we haven't had a chance to try it out. Just might have too now.

Soooo looking forward to next week's food week also.

Love and Hugs,
Claudia

We are huge guac fans at home, and unfortunately, avocados are not always in season. Luckily for us, Cost.co sells pre-made guac that is VERY easy to dress up and its almost (ALMOST) as good as fresh. (bit of garlic, bit of cilantro, dash of fresh lemon juice, and we are good to go).

Can't wait for food week!!!!

Guac is a big thing in our house too! Our four year old calls it Jaba dip, as to him it looks like Jaba the hut....
