You'll notice a theme in this "what we stuffed our faces with in the States" post...
Lots of Mexican!!!
Terri asked if we tried any Cajun food.....I am ashamed to say, that although I intended to, I did not!
It was a Mexican Fiesta for me!
It's hard to get good supplies here in NZ, and Mexican restaurants here tend to treat Mexican like it's gourmet....and charge accordingly!
But we know the truth!
So when we are in the States I indulge myself....
G isn't a Bud fan especially, but the cans were huge and cheap and patriotic!
Nothing gourmet about this, it's just good homey style cooking with fresh ingredients and lashings of refried beans!
An interesting point: a can of refried beans is as little as $1US.
In New Zealand, the same sized can will cost over $5NZ (about $4US), or you might find a special in the $3-4 range.......
I kid you not!
It is my ambition to make the perfect refried beans, but so far the secret has eluded me!
Dos Equis is G's beer of choice in the States, usually, but he makes a point of trying every local beer he can!
My dream grocery store...
These quesadillas did me for lunch and breakfast the next day!
The sign, bottom left, is my fave ever!
The inside was fabulously Brady Bunch-ish!!
Check out the light fitting below!
We were given 3 plates of the most gorgeous tapas-y thingys...but I can't remember for the life of me what they were. I was already well plastered by this point!
My dream sack of tortilla chips!
I was nearly hysterical with joy.
I am quite happy to eat tortilla chips and salsa (fresh) everyday.
I expect that would be my last meal request, if I was required to make one!
