“My two favorite meals are a result of reservations and leftovers.”
For lovers of Mexican restaurants I have a recommendation. Have the fajitas. This is a Mexican dish that’s generally served on two or three plates. This fills me up and leaves enough leftovers to take home for two additional meals, unless I share.
The main platter, which is hot, consists of meats and veggies. I generally choose the beef and chicken combination but there’s also pork and shrimp and numerous combinations possible with these options.
A second platter, which is hot and cold, generally contains tomatoes, lettuce and sour cream along with rice and beans and sometimes guacamole. Then there are four to six warm tortillas that I can stuff and eat. This generally enables me to create food decorations down the front of my clothing. I’m still trying to get the hang of this.
What I end up doing is stuffing the goodies from plate two into the tortillas and eating those, after I’ve filled up on the chips and salsa that are brought to the table when we enter the restaurant. All the meat and veggies go home with me.

Enter the world of options. Can you stand the excitement! You can warm the aforementioned meat and veggies in the microwave and serve on noodles. You can serve them on rice. You can stuff them into a pita bread with cheese. And best of all, you can do some of these options without making a lot of dirty dishes to wash.
Yes, our kitchen is still in the “getting there” stage. It’s the stage where a person could learn to appreciate the simple things in life that we, too often, take for granted.
Or a person could simply annoy the heck out of other people and complain. Some days are better than others.
