Last Night

Kait lives in Pilsen, an area of Chicago that has a high Hispanic population. I spent the weekend salivating at the various vendors who were selling authentic Mexican food (a favorite of mine). So Kait decided to take us to one of her favorites. She spent all last summer in Mexico so I knew she’d be a person who would recognize authentic from the posers. Well her favorite restaurant had a line that looked to be a half city block so we went to her second favorite.

And it was divine. I was going to try something new (one of Kait’s friends tried the tongue) but I thought perhaps I’d go with my favorite dish so I could compare it to my favorite here in the QC. Your basic enchilada. Let me tell you, there was absolutely nothing basic about this enchilada. Commence to salivating.

This place made their own salsa (of course) and this green salsa was an absolute party in the mouth. I have leftovers and I’m pretty certain I just convinced myself to eat those after this post.

Though I didn’t think it could get any better than that, it did because the people we were with were so great. One of Zach’s other cousins, David, joined us. We don’t get to spend much time with his family but every single time I’m around David and his brothers I want to just sit down with his mom (Zach’s aunt, Julie) and soak in her genius. I am actually not exaggerating at all when I say I want my boys (and girl, for that matter) to grow up to be just like their cousins.

  1. Oh I am so jealous that you were in my former town; a part of me is still there. Glad you had a wonderful time. I am always looking for good Mexican food here but have really found nothing that compares. Pilson, how fun!

  2. David called me and told me of your wonderful new babies. (ok…even David is still my baby) I am so happy for you and Zach. I know you will enjoy the love, joy, and noise that only five children can provide. Thank you for the kind words, as we find our new "normal" from our last years journey, I would love to sit and chat with you anytime to talk "mom" with a wonderful new(ish) mom on the an exciting journey. Love you!!!

I LOVE hearing from you!
