So, as you can guess, when a surprise package arrived from my friend, Sarah Stranske, loaded with Mexican food supplies, Josh and I literally leaped for joy. Dustin and Yvette had brought us a Costco-sized jug of salsa (thanks, guys!), so combined with Sarah's items and $40 worth of beans, sour cream, cheese, lettuce, and ground beef, we were able to feast on Mexican food for 3 days straight! Freshly fried tacos. . . mmmmmmm! Tostadas loaded with tons of goodness. . . . delicious! Enchiladas for breakfast. . . why not!? Even Caleb enjoyed eating at our "Taqueria a la Singapora," and filled his tummy (and nose and hair and thigh-rolls) with beans and Mexican rice.
If any of you are dying to send us a care package, here are a few items that would be a hit:
- Corn tortillas
- Plain tortilla chips (we can only get nacho-cheese chips here)
- Green enchilada sauce
- Green taco sauce
- Whole pinto or black beans
- Anything else necessary for a home-grown Mexican meal!
Thanks Sarah, Dustin and Yvette for making our Fiesta possible!
