A Mexican Fiesta

Last night, Ange and Karly came over for dinner and we enjoyed a Mexican themed dinner party! I was looking for a dinner that could be prepared ahead of time and was laid back & fuss-free…Mexican food fit the bill. This week has been insanely busy with bakery orders, so I needed something that would be delicious, but not take up too much time.

I made a DIY burrito station

IMG_4451-3

I know it looks like a lot of work, but it wasn’t that bad! I cooked the lentils and beans the night before and the speltberry salad was also already made.

The great thing about this dinner is that I prepared everything ahead of time except for the guacamole which I prepared just before serving. The rest was completely finished and wrapped up in the fridge by 9am yesterday! You can’t have a lower stress dinner than that. :)

Mmm, it’s making me hungry just thinking about it! Good thing there are leftovers for my lunch today. ;)

We had a grand ‘ol time and the burrito station was a big hit! The burrito fillings were also great to make a big salad with. I think I will be doing that for lunch today. :)

For dessert, I made vegan chocolate cupcakes with almond ‘buttercream’ and toasted coconut. They were awesome! I loved the toasted coconut on top…it really took the cupcake to a new level.

The girls each brought me some gorgeous flowers!!! I got spoiled. :) Aren’t they gorgeous?

I was told that I have to keep them alive until at least my birthday weekend May 14th. ;)

After Ange and Karly left, Eric and I watched American Idol that we taped (Go Haley!!) and I did some Vegetable Gardening reading while Eric did deck planning…

My mom gave me this book a couple years ago…how did she know that I would one day build my own vegetable garden? :) Moms are the best!

I am extremely amazed by all the gardening info that I am coming across! There is soooo much to learn and read up on. While it feels a bit overwhelming, I am extremely excited to start a garden. I could really see this becoming a huge hobby and passion of mine.

I loved this quote from Shannon the other day, “Gardening is a learning experience. Trial and error. Even the most experiences gardeners have failures and successes.” and like Karly said last night, it is better to try than to never try at all!

Many of you have also recommended the Square Foot Gardening book, so I might check that out this weekend.

Have a great Friday!

I love a fun fiesta – especially with fresh pico de gallo. I know everyone says this, but guacamole is my specialty. And now it can be yours!

I cooked the lentils, chickpeas etc, the night before so that saved lots of time. In the morning, I think it took me about 1 hour or so…not including the photography. The spelt berry salad was also already made.

That burrito bar looks amazing! I might have to try that. I’ve never had hummus on a burrito before, but the more I think about it, the more I like the idea. Maybe hummus with a little cumin or chili powder or something…

Reply

20 Katie April 15, 2011

Love build your burritos, especially for dinner parties. Everyone gets exactly what they want! I did this on New Years Eve, and I always go the salad route, since I can’t do rice. I actually prefer it to the burrito now.

How fun! I make Mexican fiestas like this too and my fiance always comments that there are “a lot of vessels” because he is in charge of the dishes :). You’re right though, it looks like a lot more work (to cook, at least) than it actually is.

I was wondering- in your opinion, is Daiya worth buying? Does it taste like real cheese in your opinion? I love cheese, but I have been swaying back and forth about it lately. Daiya is expensive by me, so I want to be sure before I commit.

Reply

24 Angela (Oh She Glows) April 15, 2011

We only buy Daiya once in a blue moon for a special treat. I don’t think it should be a staple in my diet, but it is fun sometimes.

Eric and I LOVE making grilled cheese sandwiches with it. It is a bit difficult with the shredded cheese (does it come in solid form?), but we make it work. Slather bread with earth balance and place on skillet. Eric says he cant tell the difference! It is amazing.

With that being said, once the bag is opened it does not last long and will go bad fairly quickly, so that is a downfall.

Definitely don’t get Follow Your Heart – yuck! I took one bite and almost gagged. I had to throw it out, and at $4.30, that was a big deal. I don’t know about Daiya.

I’m going to try a garden this year, but I think I’ll just wing it. It’ll probably turn out horrible, but hey, I may just surprise myself!

Looks great. I made your other taco “meat” with walnuts & 3 bean mix. My daughter loved it! I might have to try it with lentils.
You will love gardening!

36 Maria @ Oh Healthy Day April 15, 2011

I love the idea of lentils and walnuts taco “meat”! I eat meat myself, but I was just thinking the other day of how full and icky I feel after eating Mexican food. I think swapping out the meat and the cheese would make it much more satisfying afterwards :)

37 Elizabeth @ RunWithSneakers April 15, 2011

I often do a “make your own taco bar” for large gatherings. This one looks waaaaaay better than mine. I am gonna copy yours, including the cupcakes, for my next gathering. Awesome, as usual!

Wow what a spread. I always turn to build your own taco/burrito night for friends, everyone seems happy that way. but look at the taco “meat”– now that I have to try.

Those cupcakes, wow, I will also have to get at it on those.

Mexican food is one of my favorite, favorite cuisines. This is such a great set-up! If you throw some grilled summer squash there for me to put into my soft tacos/burritos, you would have probably my Last Meal wish. And I had never thought to make my own taco seasoning, that sounds superb.

Tacos are one of my favorite go-to quick meals too. I am super impressed that you are taking up gardening. I have this knack for accidentally killing plants even when I follow all the instructions. I think it happened once and then I just had all these negative expectations so it kept happening. Good luck with your garden!

Ok, first off the food looks way good especially the hummus and coconut cupcakes. And second, I totally agree with the gardening thing. It is like learning all things, there are periods of trial and error. I love to garden but because I live in Brooklyn I have to garden out my fire escape in pots. Lets just say I have made a lot of errors but think this year will be great :)

Looks yum! Mexican is always my go to when friends come over. So easy and everybody loves it. I’ll have to try the taco “meat.” I’m allergic to walnuts – I wonder if pecans would work…..

I also recommend looking up lasagna layer gardening or no dig gardening. I bought a book on it and read through, but I haven’t had a chance to actually do it. The whole idea is you build a garden bed with compost materials so you don’t have to dig and till soil. I love how low maitnence it seems.
Last year I grew cucumbers in a 1/2 wine barrell with a trellis in it and it was great. I juiced so many cucumbers. I can’t wait to plant more!

Mexican food is surprisingly easy to vegan-ize! And it’s a great genre of cuisine that has protein from beans.

I’m staring to plant my first garden this spring. We don’t have a backyard right now so it’s actually a deck garden… in pots. we’ll see how it goes! It’s better than nothing, but I am super excited to have a huge backyard in the near future. I live in California so I should be able to grow things almost year round. Can’t wait to see what you post about it so I can learn a little (or a lot!) from you :)

Yum! You are so put-together! I don’t know where you get your energy.

I think I asked before – but do you run your bakery out of your house or do you have a location that people can go to? Do you mostly just take online orders – people in your community? Always interested in how the process works!

Re: Square Foot Gardening, a lot of the information from the book is on their site. Along with some updates. I bought the updated edition of the book about a year ago. A great way to garden as large or as small as you want.

Tortilla wraps – my husband finally found those Food for Life GF wraps. Didn’t realise they were in the freezer section. Very happy to know where to find them. Now we just to have try the ones he bought. Perhaps a Mexican fiesta is in order :)

That Cookie Dough Oatmeal sounds so good! I am one who will eat the cookie dough batter, and I am usually not hungry for the cookies until the next day :)

I am not one to go to the store or mall just to window shop, because if I want something, then I will inevitably go back to buy what I liked.

I highly recommend From Seed to Table by Janet Haase (she is from Ontario!). The book is fantastic for learning about gardening! She used to produce for places like the National Arts Orchestra, Chateau Laurier..she wrote this book so down-to earth and easy to understand, with lots of pictures and seasonal recipes included. I had the chance to meet her at a conference and was so glad I picked this up!

Your Lentil-Walnut Taco Meat looks awesome! I just relinked my recipe for lentil & bean “sloppy joes” today. I love lentils + beans to make really hearty and stand on their own fillings. These tacos look amazing, Angela.

Wait tho…the buttercream frosting. I remember those. And now, I want buttercream frosting, big time!

Gardening is like photography I think…you have no idea how much info is out there til you start reading, you will never learn it all, everyone has a different take on it, and no two cameras/shots/gardens/dirt/goals are the same!

The Square Foot Gardening book is great and helpful, too!

Having a garden is so much fun! I have been growing veggies for the last three summers and before we bought our house, I had zero experience! Each year my garden gets a little better and I learn more. My recommendations are to stay small, grow just a few things at first, and make sure you pick veggies (and specific varieties of that veggie) that do well in your zone!

Good luck! :)

I’ve GOT to try that almond buttercream! Just as soon as I finish up the giant tub of cream cheese frosting in my freezer!

This is an old post, but one of my households favorites! If it were up to my husband we’d have these tacos every other night, which isn’t a bad idea haha. The first time I made them though they seemed dry to us.. maybe I did something wrong? Now when I make them I sauté a red bell pepper and an onion together until tender, then add the “meat” mixture and finally I pour a little salsa over top and mix until heated. They are better than any tacos I’ve eaten before and so simple to make.
