I’ve been missing.
In case you don’t follow my Instagram account (with gazillions of pictures) Kurt and I were on a reward trip to Mexico. Thanks to Volkswagen for sending us to the wonderful Los Cabos for sunshine and tequila, LOTS of tequila.
Oh… and some AMAZING Mexican cocina. For us, mexican food lovers, it was a complete foodie paradise.
Why don’t I show you What I Ate
Wednesday Last Week through pictures of food, the resort and us.
Beautiful, isn’t it?
How about some food?! Jasmin’s, Downtown San Jose del Cabo is renowned as the best authentic food in town! The Chile Relleno came highly recommended by our tour guide, a resident of San Jose del Cabo. I must say it did not disappoint, and that’s an understatement.
And then there was this drink.
There are a few names to it. The Chelada, Michelada or my favorite….. the Ojo Rojo (Red Eye)!!!! The Chelada simply adds the juice of a lime to a beer. Michelada adds a few dashes of Worcestershire, Tabasco and Soy sauce or Maggi Seasoning Sauce. The Ojo Rojo tops this little power house off with Clamato Juice. If you love a Bloody Mary you’ll ADORE the Ojo Rojo! Kurt and I had about 25 of them between the two of us.
As I’m typing this post for you my husband is pre-making the Ojo Rojo Sauce to store “ready” in the fridge. Add a little pepper for some spice.
And some more pictures…
There was the hypnotic sound of the waves crashing.
The agave plant I wanted to make tequila out of.
The Day of the Dead Statue I wanted to bring home with me.
And the colorful streets of San Jose del Cabo.
The most endearing quality of Mexican people is their pride in their country and their amazing ability to be such gracious hosts. Rarely will you find a country so clean and beautiful, full of such light hearted and humorous citizens. Forget what you have heard in the media about Mexico, most of the trouble in the country stays far north of these wonderful and safe destinations. Do yourself a favor and experience Mexico, we have many times!
Thanks Peas and Crayons for hosting!
