Menu: Mexico

After letting you all decide our fate for this week’s Global Table in polls, I am happy to present the menu – your menu. Each item won lovingly – with no close seconds. These are nibbles for rainy days, sunny days, and everything in between. You’ll use your grill and your blender. You’ll open wide and you’ll dance on the roof.

Well, maybe not on the last item… but you should.

When was the last time you danced like a cat on a hot tin roof?

Are you ready for Mexico?

    This all sounds delicious. I’m especially looking forward to hearing about the horchata. I’m usually boring with my beverages. For me, cooking has always been about food (unless it involves tea or alcohol). That needs to change. Oh, and nice shirt, Ava 🙂

      You’re going to love it – I was a little unsure until the first sip, and then I was a believer 🙂

        It sounds great! I love trying new drinks when I travel and in restaurants. I just never think about making them at home.

  2. It will be interesting to see your take in Mexican food.
    Looking froward to it.

      I hope I do it justice – there are so many regional variations 🙂
