So Friday night I wanted to have a Mexican food night. To be honest, I just wanted an excuse to have guacamole. I loves me some guac! So, I hunted down some good looking recipes for entrees and off we went to Sendik's for ingredients.
There are two things you should know about me: 1) I love going to the grocery store with my hubby. Mostly. When he starts playing with the cart like it's a race car, I tend to get a bit annoyed, but otherwise, it's actually something I enjoy doing. 2) I especially love grocery shopping at Sendik's. For anyone who hasn't been to Sendik's, I highly suggest it.
Sadly, I was a bit disappointed by our Sendik's trip. They didn't have pre-made guac, for one. Really? I can go to most any Pick n Save and find already made guac. Sometimes it's already packaged for me, too. Step it up, Sendik's!
For another, NONE of their normal avocados were ripe. We had managed to find a guac mix ("Just add avocados!") and figured we'd give it a try. But the avocado selection was less than stellar. They were like bumpy green stones. Not cool. We spent six dollars getting two "organic" avocados (and justified it by saying we weren't getting any other ingredients for it, like onions, tomatoes, etc). It ended up being pretty tasty, but still.
For dinner, we made chimichangas. Here's the recipe. I was seriously surprised that this recipe was as easy as it was, AND it was tasty! We substituted ground turkey for the ground beef (as we almost always do) and I melted some cheese over the top of the chimis, but otherwise followed the recipe pretty closely. With a little taco sauce and some sour cream on top... Mmmmmmm... Now I'm getting hungry, dammit.
Anywhoozles, just thought I'd share a good food experience with y'all. :-) This weekend we're going for another tropical night, so stay tuned!
