May 5th...


Mr. Sweet and I love Mexican Food to the moon and back.....and then some.

We don't have to wait for Cinco de Mayo to visit

No sir-ree-bob....
we eat at this awesome cafe at least once a month...
and sometimes MORE..
Yep.....we DO love us some Tex-Mex.

Not only is their food totally GOOD..
all the colorful bits and bobs around in the cafe

I love the brightly colored Mexican pottery.
I'd love to take a shopping trip to Mexico, like we used to do...

Mr. Sweet nearly ALways gets the 

I change up nearly every time we go..I've never ordered anything I didn't just love...
this is their delish
and I sprinkle plenty of fresh CILANTRO ....
i love that stuff... 

Hot, fresh Sopapillas...
my favorite Mexican dessert...

I made these with store-bought flour tortillas...
just cut a whole one in 4th,
deep fry in hot oil, using a fork to hold ea under the oil for a good puff.
If they don't puff, the oil isn't hot enuf so turn on that vent will need it.

You can google a homemade Sopapilla recipe ...
or pick up a Sopapilla Mix at the groc. store.





2 (10oz) cans of frozen Margarita concentrate
1 cup Tequila
1/3 cup fresh lime juice (2 or 3 medium limes)
1 medium lime, cut into 6 slices
Margarita salt for glass rims
1 12oz. can lemon-lime carbonated beverage

  • 1 In medium bowl, combine margarita concentrate, tequila and lime juice; mix well. Spread mixture in 8-inch square (2-quart) glass baking dish. Freeze at least 5 hours or until set.
  • 2 To serve, run lime wedge around rim of each glass; dip in margarita salt. For each drink, spoon 2/3 cup frozen mixture into glass; pour 1/4 cup carbonated beverage over top. Garnish with lime wedges.



  1. I eat Mexican food at least once a week, but have not tried this place. Looks so tasty. However, I cut the rice. I would be laying o n the floor with one of those drinks.

    1. HAHHHHAAAA....I can just see LV sprawled on the floor with a margarita glass in her hand.....

  6. BJ, All that food look tasty. I like some tex-mex foods. Not all. I like rice in any recipe. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  7. I love that restaurant too. Will have to try to make sopapillas like you advised. I got used to homemade ones in New Mexico and we don't find good ones like those here in NE Texas.

  8. Happy Cinco de Mayo! I know I'll have a margarita or two. I love Mexican food too. xo

  9. Your killin me with this Mexican favorite, I think. Anywho, we will be at our Mexican dive tomorrow evening for Cinco de Mayo. We actually have a standing Tequila Tuesday meal there every Tuesday. Happy Cinco de Mayo falls on a Tuesday this year! Lilliana (our favorite waitress) starts making our margaritas when she sees us drive up! If we end up in Austin I'm going to put this restaurant on our "go tos" Ejola!

  10. HAPPY CINCO de MAYO . . . I think we should all join you at Rosa's Café and have one huge party!
    READY ??????

  11. Oh my, I love enchiladas! What a delicious sounding Margarita recipe, yummy! Okay, now I'm starving and I've already had dinner!

  12. Don't forget ~ tomorrow is Taco Tuesday at Rosa's! There is a new one just a few blocks away and it's much better than the one we used to go to. Mexican food is a must ~ could eat it anytime! Enjoy your day tomorrow ~


  13. I do like your photo of Princess Charlotte, and her full names, they chose so well. Food galore, eat up and enjoy.

  14. Happy Cinco de Mayo. I like cheese enchiladas too and long as they don't put too much cheese. My daughter loves sopapillas. xoxo Su

  21. Wonderful post on this the 5th of May. I like some Mexican food but have to be careful of what I eat (carbs) . Everything look so good. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  22. I'm finally getting more accustomed to Mexican food, being from the Midwest where we eat meat and potatoes with salt and pepper. Today is special celebration of my hubbys birthday!

  23. Oh, delicious, bj!! We LOVE mexican food too. Yum, it looks so good. I love it all drenched in cheese--so bad and so good at the same time. I think those margaritas will be on my table tonight! Olé! Linda

  24. I just love Mexican food -- maybe tonight we should head to our fave Mexican place or maybe just appetizers and margaritas! Your colorful photos have me in the mood -- and I love the baby princess pic, too!

  25. That drink sounds amazing and so does the food. Nom Nom Nom you are making me hungry again. Hehe

    Your Mexican yell made me laugh because a local radio station was interviewing random people in Manhattan asking them to do their best Mexican scream. Hahaha

  26. BJ,
    I am soooo hungry now after seeing your post. OMG that taco plate the hubbster is having looks so yummo! I love Mexican too. I cannot get enough of it. That place looks really cute and the food looks pretty delish. I think I would be in there more than once or twice a month you have good will power girl. Who does not love a good Margarita! Happy Cinco De Mayo.

  27. And no one has great Mexican food like Texas, Ok, NM, and Az! I'm sure that California does, too, but I've not been there. Your plates of food look so good!

  28. LOVE Mexican food and their colorful pottery too. Must check out that Sopapilla recipe.
    PS--Little Diana's welcome is adorable.

  29. Your food looks so good. We may be a day late, but may have Mexican food tomorrow. But heck ... does not matter what day it is, Mexican food is good any day. It is also okay to have a margarita for lunch. Right !!!
    Have a happy week.
