Today's picture(s) - St. Patrick's Day

Doesn't everyone spend St. Patrick's Day in a Mexican restaurant? Had a great time with Michael and Estée. The baby is due in less than four weeks!


My favorite dish, the one I get every time, Taquitos del Rancho: four fried corn tortilla taquitos filled with potatoes (potatoes cooked with onions and tomatoes). Served with Spanish rice, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream and guacamole.

  1. Michael and Estee look expectantly radiant - and, oh my, does that meal look good.

    1. I love your words 'expectantly radiant' - perfect. and yes the meal is great. not all Mexican places offer potatoes in their dishes!

    2. My sister-in-law, who is half Mexican and half Filipino, uses potatoes (as well as chicken) in her enchiladas. It's a great way to stretch a meal and quite yummy, too.

  2. That looks yummy. Think we'll be posting baby pics around the same time. 2.5 more weeks here.

    1. Estée's mum offered people to guess when the baby would come on her fb page. :<) I think the kids are hoping March.

  3. St. Patrick's Day isn't generally observed here in Germany, but I know that it's a roaring party at the Irish pub where I am a regular, never been there for the occasion, though.
    I love guacamole and often make it just for myself when I intend to spend a cosy quiet evening at home.

    1. It isn't that big a celebration in Ireland either, but it's a huge day in the US. I think mostly because it is an excuse to drink a lot!

  5. That baby will be here before you know it!! And what a beautiful couple. I'll be they're having a great time with their little niece!

    Guess what? 99% of the time, I order Taquitos, although I get mine with chicken (and rice, beans and guac!). Sometimes, I'll get the Flautas, which are the same only made with flour tortillas instead of corn.

    1. Aren't you just amazing to remember the potato and bean tacos!! I can't believe it.
      Not daughter-in-law yet. They decided to put it off and focus on the little one.
      Thanks. I'm pleased you like it. The brown is a little bear outfit. :<)

  7. I have some Irish heritage and no Mexican, but I'd definitely rather eat Mexican food than corned beef and cabbage!) Your choice sounds wonderful. Mom and Dad to be look healthy happy and excited. Best of luck to all.

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
