hola mexican!


I cant exactly cook…except for one thing! Chilli Con Carne!! And I’m making it tonight for dinner! Yum!
And the best part! It only takes 15mins!

What you need:
1 tbs olive oil
1kg lean beef mince
1 brown onion, chopped
1 red capsicum, chopped
1 packed of chilli con carne seasoning (with the Mexican stuff at the supermarket)
800g can diced tomatoes
400g can red kidney beans, rinsed, drained
2 tbs tomato paste

To serve:
Steamed rice
Fresh coriander
Grated Cheese
Sour cream

Here we go….
- Grab a large frying pan out and heat the olive oil on high. Put the mince in, and break up any chunks with a wooden spoon. Cook until its all nice and brown.
- Add the onion & the capsicum. Cook for about 3 mins until they are soft then add the seasoning packet, along with the can of tomatoes, beans and tomato paste.
- Stir, cook, stir until its thickened, about 2 mins.
- Cook your rice, and serve!
- Top with chopped corinander, sour cream and a sprinkle of grated cheese! Mmmm!!!

9 to go....

I dont know about anyone else but I am loving this weekly count down till Christmas! Yes...we are those really annoying people that get too excited over the decorations and the trees and the wrapping of the presents!! I gave a little skip yesterday walking past a row of oh so pretty decorations and fairy lights!! its coming!!!

night time noodles....

noodle markets last night! they were very tasty, i recommend trying to get there before they finish on friday! there was lots of tasty food to choose from, thai, chinese, japanese, pancakes!! dj's playing music set the mood in each corner of the market square with dancers and performers!
ps if you go, take a picnic rug! tables are hard to come by and the grass was a tad damp

w.e.e.k.e.n.d

the weekend is almost here! woo whoo!
we will be at Glebe markets tomorrow if your around be sure to pop in and then we are off to mexican feast (hence the skull) to welcome our friend Emma back from her european travels!
we LOVE mexican so we cant wait! burritos, bean dip, gucamile and cold beers!! amazing!
hope you all have a fantastic weekend! xoxo

ps..a little random information for you all, you will often see skulls used regularly in Mexican art. Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday celebrated in Mexico and the US.
The holiday focuses remebering friends and family members who have passed.
Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars honoring the deceased using sugar skulls (colourful skulls like the image on the left made from sugar) and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed and visiting graves with these as gifts.
The holiday is believed to date back to the Aztecs, where the worship of death involved worship of life, while the skull – symbol of death – was a promise to resurrection.

the winner is.................
