Mexican Food and a Road Trip

Growing up in Southern California, we all love Mexican food......and my friend, Kay shared a wonderful website with videos on how to make your own Mexican food at home....I am really impressed with the website and wanted to share it with you as I know you will enjoy it also...the first thing I made was the Strawberry Lemonade as we had both lemons and strawberries, it was very good and disappeared very fast........




Here is the link to Robin's website....Delicious Mexican Food Recipes...she also has a blog! Rockin Robins Mexican Recipes blog....

you can, of course, adjust the spices, chilies, etc. to your own families taste...

Yesterday, we had a job deep in San Diego county, up in the tiny little mountain town of Alpine....the modular house needed some work but it was in a lovely area, on a private street outside of town....two fireplaces, one in the kitchen, and one in the master bedroom...

This is looking out from the front porch......looking south

 this again is in the front, looking north....the fenced area is a patio.....nice views.......and being in the mountains, never is as warm as down in El Cajon and La Mesa....

Here is the country kitchen with the fireplace....
The doorway leads to the laundry room and a small bathroom.....it also has open beam ceilings.....granite countertops....but the floor isn't too good..I'd replace it with tile....
Below is the master bedroom....
as  you can see, the carpet should be replaced also..but the house has lots of potential........
the house sits on a acre of land with another large lot above it where a second modular home could be placed.....and includes this old tree house..not safe now but what fun kids must have had back in the day!

It was a nice drive, some 90 miles from home......and a beautiful day...we have  two jobs tomorrow in the same area.
That is all for today....hope  you enjoy the food videos and cook up something wonderful....
