It’s been awhile since I’ve posted under the ‘Mommy: Just showing some baby love’ section of this blog. I pretty much suck at scrap books and remembering to videotape, so recording memories from my kids’ childhood is really one of the main reasons I have this blog in the first place. Well…just below that time Hint water sponsored Carlitos’ birthday party and the excitement of visiting California for BlogHer. Okay, let’s be honest, recording their experiences is tied for third with ‘holding onto the last threads of my sanity by having some sort of outlet.’
In any event, I have combined some photos that overflow with their cuteness (in my personal, non-biased opinion) with a few pointers on how to best use any leftovers from giant Mexican feasts you may throw.
Before I get to the boys, let me just say that I firmly believe that Mexican food makes for the BEST ‘leftovers turned breakfast.’ The only thing I really added was scrambled eggs and suddenly it went from cena to desayuno. Magic!
Carlitos has a weird doubtful look on his face but I assure you he devoured that whole plate. Oh, I forgot to mention that coffee and juice help turn this meal magically into breakfast the next day. Throw some cinnamon in that coffee and you are practically eligible for a Mexican passport.
And then eat the insides with your hands? I was certain you were supposed to leave it rolled up and take a bite of the whole thing. I guess Xavi is trying to teach us that there are no rules when it comes to tacos, or Mexican food, or, well, food in general. Just enjoy it.
The only downside of turning your giant dinner into a giant breakfast? Doing TWO huge clean-ups in less than 12 hours. On days like this, Tupperware instead of serving plates and a few Solo cups instead of ceramic ones kind of save me, even if it isn’t so elegant.
Another tip? The more that gets eaten…the less you have to put away again afterward. Luckily, getting your family to gorge themselves on a breakfast this yummy shouldn’t be too tricky.
