Fajitas for tea
My new bed arrived this morning!!! Tonight I will probably spend a couple of hours trying to put it all together, before giving up, and sleeping on the mattress on the floor until the weekend.

Yesterday misty cooked fajitas [sp?] for dinner. There was a choice of filling, including italian chicken and pepper beef. They were damn good! My sister had been called into work (in a pub) so Misty and I went to see her, and drink a few beers, and play some pool. Some old guy collered me for a couple games, and beat me. I got him back in the end though.

Pete and Ann joined us (or came to see my sister anyway) at 10ish ... and I played a couple games against Pete. All in all an enjoyable evening.

Oh well - back to the grind-stone

Current Mood: busy busy

spelling correct - but you're not allowed to pronounce the j mr park .. remember we've had a discussion re this before - jalapenos think it was :o) fajitas are very very tasty - go 'Down Mexico Way' - Swallow Street,just off Regent Street, yummy cocktails, latin music, delicious food, beautiful decor ... also the oldest mexican restaurant in the UK :o)

When i was in cancun ;o), the best fajitas were the ones from Planet Hollywood, they came up on a sizzling plate; everyone in the room was looking at me, i think i polished them off and about half of the birds fries. :O|

You can get decent old el paso mixes from tesco's, i found through sampling them all that burritos are the best ones, especially with grated cheese, cut up toms & cue, topped off with the salsa mix that comes with them. I did actually make Mexican mince the other day rather than making burritos (Mince, half or quarter of an onion, table spoon of flour, tin of diced tomatoes {plum ones are best} and a tin of beans. Cook the mince til brown, add onion, add flour, then add the tins, mix in and then on the lowest setting leave for 40 minutes, stirring occassionally so doesn't burn).

I bought some new ones beggining with 'A' >forgot< from the old el paso range, they are like burritos, but have melted cheese over the top of the tortillas.

Arc at me, berone the Chef. :o)

Re: Fajitas

Pre-packaged seasoning mixes are evil. They're usually far too salty. Sazón is the best seasoning to use for Mexican food (fajita filling, rice, whatever), but I can't find it in England. :/ Italian dressing (for chicken) and some random hot steak seasoning from Sainsbury's will do until I can get my spice and seasoning smuggling ring up and running. ;)

And are you talking about enchiladas? That's the only thing I can think of that's similar to a burrito and has an A-sound at the beginning.

Re: Fajitas

Yes you are right, Ehchiladas are the ones i bought. Don't do rice, too boring, i prefer paying the £2 for the mix and tortillas & then getting the 89p mince, then let the bird cook it!!! Bonzer ;o)

Re: Fajitas

Rice is goooooooood folded into a fajita. :P

Hmmm. Buying ingredients and letting the bird cook it.... Hmm. I wonder if I can get that to work in reverse with James. >:]

We should be able to put the bed together tonight, no problem. It can't be that hard, and we both kick ass. I suppose it all really depends on how much wine we have with dinner. ;)
