You already know I love trying new things so I had so much fun walking around the Mexican grocery store, looking at everything. Most things I’ve somewhat heard of but many I have not tried. There have been three people working in there both times we’ve been there but only one speaks fluent English . . or enough to speak with me and answer my questions. Today she took me back to the meat counter and was explaining the different cuts of meat they use and how they compare to traditional American meats. They have al pastor meat already seasoned and ready to fry in a skillet so we got some of that to try.
We’re wanting to try to duplicate the cheese dip from the Mexican restaurants. Addie and Vince both love that so the lady in the store told us her favorite is this FUD cheese and told us how to make it. We’re going to try it this weekend while Addie is here and see what we can come up with. I got two varieties of Horchata to try. I love that stuff. We tried the liquid one today and it was really good. The lady in the store suggested I try the Klass brand. It’s a powder and she showed me all the flavors of drink mixes. I’m guessing it’s a bit like Kool Aid but haven’t tried it. I got Hibiscus and she recommended I try cantaloup next. I got dried Mexican oregano and dried expazote til I can get some fresh growing. I got two packages of the already seasoned al pastor meat, a pineapple and Mexican hot chocolate mix. I’ve been able to buy that in stores in other places and I like it. Vince picked up the Guava candy and said he likes it. I tried it and it’s not bad but not my favorite.
Oh . . it isn’t in the picture and I almost forgot but Vince bought two coconuts there today. I think he and Addie may try to open one this weekend.
We’re having fun exploring the area and trying new things.
