FAJITAS

At our house we love Mexican food. While I was pregnant it seemed to be all I craved. So we have kept the weekly tradition going and rotate through a mix of Mexican dishes. One of our favorites is fajitas. These are super easy to make and taste so good. These fajitas remind me of my favorite Mexican restaurant in Logan. My mom would take my sister and me to eat on an occasional day off of school. Their salsa was to die for, but so were their fajitas. The chicken fajitas were my favorite. The platters were huge so my mom and I would always split it. Since we no longer live close and the days of days off of school are gone I’ve tried to recreate that restaurant meal.  Simply pair these with some refried beans and Spanish rice. If you are feeling really authentic you can serve them on a steaming hot plate.

Here’s a little about me: I usually don’t buy things that I could make. I like to read and learn. I have dreams of being a mom, living in foreign countries, and trying new things. I take a ton of pictures. I collect rocks from the places I’ve been. I’m trying to learn French. I like to eat. I’m a Mormon.
