This most recent dinner was super special for two reasons. For one, Michelle treated me to dinner since it was a day after my birthday. And she spoiled me with a gift of scented soaps and Godiva chocolates. She knows me so well.
The other reason for our meeting is that…I'm so excited about it…we are doing a children's book together and we were meeting for a final look at the manuscript and illustrations. Michelle is very artistic and talented. When I told her I had this children's story I was going to submit to a publisher, she said she'd like to do illustrations and I am so happy to be working with her. Her drawings are amazing and I can't wait to see our book in print. It's a little rhyming story about nocturnal animals.
We became friends on the first day of kindergarten for our boys - both our second born. They are now sophomores in high school. We just clicked instantly and have been great friends ever since.
So, back to the food. I love the guacamole. I also don't think I've mentioned it in the blog in the past, but they do have great tamales, too. :)
Here's my platter from my most recent visit with Michelle. I got a combo platter with a pork taco, a beef enchilada and a quesadilla - I asked them to add spinach like I always do. :) It's served with a side of refried beans and rice.
Michelle got tamales. I don't remember if they have them every day or just on weekends to buy by the dozen, but if you're ever in there and have an opportunity to buy a dozen, do it. They are wonderful!
