Since I have moved to Texas I want to experience everything! I love going to the market...
Really???? Yes! It is wonderful to walk through the produce department and wonder what in the world do Texans do with this stuff ? There are so many vegetables that I have never heard of....forget about Mexican pastries! That's a whole other can of worms!
I have decided to make friends with someone who knows how to cook Mexican and then, bribe them to teach me! lol
A few days ago, I took my husband to "Fiesta," a market here in Houston. He was in awe at the produce department....so many peppers, fruits, roots, cactus etc. We heard only Spanish being spoken and the piles of tortilla on tables would make your head spin! The other neat thing is they had stores in the grocery store! What's up with that? You could buy clothes, get your hair done, buy drinks, buy who knows what else! It looked like we were in Las Vegas with all the lights.
We had fun going up and down the aisles looking at all the food. We did buy fruit and some Mexican pastries. I forgot to write down the names so I will have to go back to write them down and see if I can make friends with someone who knows how to cook Mexican!
With all that said, can you guess where my inspiration came from....Yes! Tex-Mex...Italian style! lol
We are in my family room on the round coffee table.....we often eat in here on Friday nights or if we are in the middle of a good movie!
Dinner is Tex-Mex Pie( I learned to make this from a church we visited), a Green Salad and Strawberry Margarita's.
The striped dishes are by Set Sail. I bought 4 plates and bowls at 1/2 price in two different stores. One in Spring and the other in Galveston, Texas. Who could have guessed!
The oval bowl is "Sango". The pattern is Cafe Americana 98.
This set was given to me by my friend Shelley from Buffalo, NY.
The napkins are bandannas from Hobby Lobby. The fruit is from Fiesta Market. The bowl the fruit is in is a gift from my friend Shelley.
The Margaritas glasses are from Marshall's. I forgot to fill them!
The candelabra is from The Goodwill in Buffalo...at $2.00, I couldn't resist! The tablecloth is from a thrift store in Houston. I just love the colors! Very festive!
