MEXICAN EATIN'

My sister in-law wanted to take us out to dinner for my husbands birthday, so last night we ended up going to his favorite Mexican restaurant, Casa Azteca. I don't know why I do this, but every restaurant we go to, I always order THE SAME THING. Maybe it's because I know what to expect, and I would hate to be disappointed if I ended up ordering something I didn't like.

I've posted about this restaurant before, but I thought I'd share a couple of dishes that we ordered. It's funny because the manager there has really taken to my son, Eli and always makes a point to come over and make small talk with him. It's not creepy at all, or else we wouldn't eat there anymore. But, for some reason, Eli always (and not on purpose) has a way of drawing people to him. He really is a genuine, nice boy, and even my other kids make comments like, "Why does everyone always like Eli?" All I can say to that is that it's totally the Lord!!

Anyway, getting back on track! Here are some pictures from dinner!

Not sure what this was called, but my husband ordered it and it had a very strong garlic taste to it. But, the shrimp was good!

My sis in-laws chicken fajitas. You can never go wrong there!

Now, are those nachos or what??

This is the birthday cake I made the day before (on his actual birthday). We didn't do anything that night since he was helping with the basketball camp. I almost didn't post this picture because how the cake got mixed with the frosting..lol. So, I'll call it my oreo cake!

I always order the same thing at restaurants, too. Every now and then, I'll be adventurous and try something new. If that something new disappoints, I vow never to veer from the tried-and-true again. However, sometimes I forget and do it all again....

Great job on the cake! I always get the crumbs mixed into the frosting so I try to use dark frosting whenever I can hahah.
