Sunday Snapshot: Mexican Night

One thing we can't find in my city is a good Mexican restaurant. Tragic, I know. I had brought some taco seasoning mixes back with me after being in the States and a few of us decided to make our own Mexican food. This weekend was a holiday and so we decided this was the weekend to do it. 

Cheese is a real treat in China. As in I never buy it because it's about $7 USD for a block of cheese and just isn't worth it to me. I do like it every once in a while though.

Our spread of food. Yummy.

Mashed potatoes aren't really Mexican (as far as I know) but the resume my friend Joy made, called for you to put melted cheese and salsa on it. It was delicious!

Ground beef is very hard to find here and a special treat.

My homemade salsa. I could eat it by the spoonful. I may or may not do that.

We even found taco shells! They were a little stale but not bad once heated up.

A little piece of heaven.

Obviously I am quite excited about my taco.

Joy's cheesy potatoes.

Pineapple cake for dessert.

Can we have another Mexican night really soon? Cinco de mayo anyone?

Linking up with Ni Hao Ya'll


  1. This is making me giggle- Tex-Mex goes Chinese. I'm not sure a Mexican would even recognize you're eating Mexican food, but I'm glad you enjoyed your tacos! :)

  2. Haha, agreed! Ok, so this was the closest I've had to "Mexican" in a long time! ;)

  3. This post made me laugh. My best friend is serving the Lord in Czech Republic, and also craves Mexican. I once sent her a "Fiesta in a box", including inflatable cactus. :) Thank you for your thoughtful posts. My husband and I are in the adoption process right now, and we are madly in love with a certain "sweetie" who appears on your blog.
