Not Another Ham Sandwich

December 27th, 2010

I don’t know about you guys but if I have to even LOOK at another ham sandwich I am going to scream.  We over catered, as per usual, and now have large quantities of ham, turkey and everything in between to get through.  I should say however that I am a vegetarian so really Jason has to get through it – which is actually possible given his track record.  But you know, even the most die-hard foodaholic needs to spice things up a little and after a morning of ham and eggs followed by a ham and mustard sandwich, Jason and I went out to dinner to have Mexican!!!  There is a new taqueria at the Emporium in Fortitude Valley called Guzman Y Gomez.  We had heard about it from friends of our who visited it down in Sydney and given our deep love for tacos we have been waiting for it to arrive up north with baited breath.  And we were not disappointed!!!!

Jason had the Pork Chipotle Burrito.  I’m afraid he ate it so quickly that we didn’t get a photo of what it was like inside.  The thing was wonderful and, from what I have read about Mexican food, very authentic.  The people who served us were talking in Spanish so that is always a good sign.

I had the barramundi tacos which were delicious.  You can order them either on soft or hard shells – I chose soft.  They were tasty and very light.  I got two for a whopping $7.90 which was a bargain.  We also ordered a side of corn chips and salsa – the corn chips were great – nothing like those nasty Doritos rubbish.  They were the real thing – deep fried authentic tortillas.  Mmmmm

It was licensed so Jason opted for a Corona but there were two different Mexican beers available that he will try next time we go.  (Tomorrow maybe?)

We would highly recommend Guzman Y Gomez – and thank you so much for bringing some fresh, flavoursome, authentic and decent Mexican food to Brisbane.  See you later Old El Paso rubbish – there is a new kid on the block.

Waiting for the Man

December 24th, 2010

I just wanted to wish all of you a very, Merry Christmas.  I have been cooking up a storm (in fact I am taking a break but am about to do some more Fruit Mince Tarts and Gingerbread) and will probably not be able to eat anything tomorrow because I have been slaving over it all for three solid days.  The ham is baked, the turkey stuffed and cooked and the Linzer Torte is rolled, baked and cooled all in readiness for the festivities to begin.   I hope you all have a wonderful day tomorrow whatever it is that you have planned.

I have been blogging now for 8 months and I wanted to say thanks for all your support, comments, help and feedback – I just so appreciate it.  My mother said to me today that I am a writer now – and I guess in a way I am – but I really just consider it like a chat with friends.  And thank you for listening and being there.

So I hope you all have a great day tomorrow and that the Man (you know, the one in the red suit) gives you your heart’s desire. Take it away Perry…
