What's for Diner Tonight?

I have had the hardest time coming up with diner ideas. I have recently been on a Mexican food kick and love to cook deep fried or really super fresh salsa. Thanks to my friend Heather Godinez, my sister and I have found new ways to make Mexican food and it is very AUTHENTIC! I love the chicken enchiladas and have not yet tried the tostadas, but heard from Elisa that they are superb. If anybody has great Mexican food ideas, I would love them.

I started diner tonight at 3 pm in the crock pot and the chicken is still raw. What a blessing! I called Jamie and he's picking up Mexican food from Cafe Mexcali. I love that place. They have the best White Habanero sauce ever! So, I may not get my chicken enchiladas I was planning on (by the way, the enchilada sauce is made from scratch and is unbelievably delicious!!!), but I do get to endulge in something almost as good-NO CLEAN UP!!!

We had a great Christmas and I haven't done any posting. We spent the holidays with Jamie's family in Colorado Springs and got to see Steve, Keri, Steven James, KT and Brett from California. It was so great to see them. They gave us California fever and we are now planning a trip to LA to visit them in the spring. I love having family in California because you get a chance to visit!

I am so sick of making dinner.

We are going to Cali in the spring also. It would be great to see you there.

OK Caro - you need to practice for the spelling bee with Summer. Here's your first word - How do you spell Dinner?
Is it Diner or Dinner?
