Traditional guacamole in a molcajete, a lava stone mortar and pestle served at Rosa Mexicano.


Today we went to Rosa Mexicanofor Kayla’s birthday.  (Kayla, Candy, MaKayla, Michael and me)  We got a great corner booth  with a great view of all the activities of Atlantic Station.  The restaurant is beautiful and the menu is high end Mexican cuisine.  The atmosphere is wonderful. 

They are known for tableside made guacamole.  They push a cart around with all the fixins and make it the way you like it.   There were five of us and we all wanted the guacamole so we ordered a double.   The man put in two avocados, about one tomato, one jalapeno, two tablespoons of onion, salt and a cup of cilantro.  (we are going to start adding cilantro to ours at home)   He mushed it all up and served it with some really fresh chips and homemade tortillas.  IT WAS FANTASTIC!!  We all enjoyed it.  It was so good I almost ordered more.

We then each ordered a variety of items so we could taste some different things.  I got a shredded beef dish with Mole sauce.  It was very nice.  We had chicken dishes and a great cheese dish.  Very good food!

When the check came it was expensive but it was special and worth it.  I will tell you the guacamole was $24.  Yes that is correct, $24 and the truth is we could have easily had another serving.   I figured the cost for the ingredients to be $3 at the most, Rosa is doing quite well for herself!!   As much as we enjoyed Candace and I decided we liked ours and Uncle Jimmy’s just as much, maybe even more!!  lol

I love experiences like those with my girls, they are priceless!  Maybe we could make this into one of those VISA Priceless commercials.  My TIME WITH MY DAUGHTERS IS THE BEST THING EVVVVVEEEERRRRRR!!!!!  I would take them back and order a quadruple gaucamole if it would give us another great time like we had today.

Get away

Wow! Keith and I went away for two days. We went to the Blue Ridge mountains and stayed in a cabin. The cabin was beautiful, the view was breath taking. There was NOTHING to do but relax. The tv only had home shopping network and HGTV. We brought books and snacks. We read, slept, eat out a few times and had lots of time to talk and _____. Good time was had by all.

We talked about things we needed to air out but did not dwell there long. Just long enough to get it all out and feel we were head in some areas. Mostly we relaxed together. It was really nice.

Coming home was not hard. We had a great time and when we got home Kayla was home for the weekend! What a great way to start the weekend!

God gave us a little time to enjoy each other, enjoy Him, and to constructively get a game plan for areas we want to work on. Keith was perfect. He knows me and he knows what is important to me. We both committed to keep loving and working.

I feel marriage refreshed.
