11 Years

Tony and I celebrated our 11th anniversary with dinner for two at Corazon. Our actual anniversary occurred during Tony's trip to Japan. When he returned, I was more than ready for a child-free night out. I love the kiddos but two weeks of solo parenting duty was a lot to handle. I have nothing but the utmost respect for the parents who do it every day!

We started off with chips and dark, roasted salsa.

Fancy guacamole sprinkled with cotija cheese.

I'm loving sangria swirls this summer. This one was super strong!

Potato-corn sope with wild mushrooms. A sope is a savory cake, in this case made from cornmeal and potato. It was topped with a light, spongy goat cheese custard and sauteed mushrooms, and dressed with tamarind sauce, crema, and tomatillo salsa. I loved this mix of textures and flavors, especially the sweet and sour tamarind sauce. Not your typical Tex-Mex ingredient.

Basking in the glow of our love and 105 degree heat!

  1. Happy anniversary! 11 years is to be celebrated and commended! That's so cool that he got to go to Japan. And that banana, that is something :0...but it really is a great idea - my kids always want to bring a banana with them, and it always gets bruised and yucky in the car.
