Yes, I am just now posting about this past weekend on Thursday, its been a hectic week. But I didn't want you to miss out on seeing this beautiful shrimp chimichanga. Yes, my trainer would shake her head if she saw that this is what I fed my hungry body after our training session last week, but oh, wow was it worth it.
As you all may have guess, Indianapolis isn't exactly the hot spot of the Midwest for Mexican food let alone the kind of tasty Tex-Mex we grew up on. Since relocating out of the South/Southwest, we have mastered our salsa recipe and can make pretty decent red sauce chicken enchiladas. But most of our time has been spent trying insulting dishes and eating "cheese dip" (yup, that's what they call queso north of the Mason Dixon). But this year we discovered this great Mexican food place that serves probably the best Mexican food we have found since leaving Texas five years ago. The best/worst part is that its within walking distance of our house. So on Thursday after T came home from work (and by come home, I mean flew in from the other side of the country) we decided to head over and grab a bite. Yum!
On Sunday we went over to our friend J and K's house to celebrate J's 31st birthday and I'm not going to lie I also went hoping to hold their new baby Calvin. K had the really great idea for J's summer birthday and because they are new parents and wanted to do something low key. She decided to throw him an "Ice Cream Social" birthday party. It was perfect! And you know what? Bonus! K bought Blue Bell Ice Cream which is Texas based, ice cream goodness and just started being sold in Indy. Plus the weather was cool in the shade and there was a mice breeze on their beautiful patio. Everyone was super laid back and sort of lazy. It was the perfect way to end the weekend.
So there was more to our weekend than food, but I guess that's what I wanted to share! What did you do this past weekend?
