New day again! 🙂 However, mine has not started that great. But I am laughing about it now already… When I was driving to work, my car suddenly started to do strange noises and weirdly acting and I was not sure if I would be able to make it to work. It got worse so I needed to stop in the middle of my way to work and thought “what a hell is going on”. I called to my boss that I might me late to work. Then I called my car insurance, then my garage and waited around 30 minuted. I switched on the car again afterwards and like nothing has happened 😀 I was happy too early… Just before arrival to work, it happened again and this time with “amazing” engine light on and I knew, I am in troubles… So I went to my collegues and asked for help. These guys are simply great and I appreciated their help so much. We took the car to the garage where we maintain company cars and now… I am waiting for their call. However I wish I could have more patience 😀 I am kind of annoyed as well as I had my car just last week for service and check up and paid quite lot of money for it…
Aaaand while waiting… having silly and cheap sandwich for lunch as I have forgotten my Spanish tortilla at home (!! silly me), I am dreaming about Mexican torta which is incomparable to sandwiches here (have a look below) 🙂 And secretly hope that it is not going to be something serious with my car.
Well, at least I am not hungry and I keep smiling 🙂 Hopefully, you had better start of the day than me.
Have a great day!

Over the week, I tend to do something very quick and comforting. And as well now as I do not feel that great as usual, even more. I have become an addicted to Mexican food and I wanted to prepare something nice and quick. Mexican casserole is good choice.
What do you need:
650 g minced beef
2 garlic cloves
hot chilli powder
1 cup rice
2 cups vegetable broth (vegetable stock)
1 can black beans
1 can sweet corn (or frozen)
salt and pepper
parsley or cilantro
1 1/2 cup cheddar cheese
1 1/2 Monterey Jack cheese
Firstly, take a big pan, finely chop onion and add into the pan together with minced meat and chorizo (Mexican or Spanish, whichever you prefer). Season the meat with taco seasoning, hot chilli powder and cumin. Cook the meat until brownish and black beans, sweet corn and rice. Mix everything properly together and add vegetable broth into the pan. Let it cook until is rice done and meat soft. If you need more water, add more. At the end, reduce the heat and add chopped tomatoes into the mix. Mix it briefly together and switch off the fire. At the end, top the casserole with grated cheese (both of them) and freshly cut parsley or cilantro. Let the cheese melt and serve! You can eat is with tortillas and avocado as we do like or just like it is 🙂
Enjoy this very simple, but delicious dish!

New week is here! 🙂
I hope you had a great weekend. We had… Slightly crazy, but nice. On Friday, UK was completely covered with snow and it is not that fun to drive with summer tires (!). Once our home was covered with snow… during the weekend it has been gone. What a weather. One day freezing temperatures and other day almost spring time. Our planet is complaining unfortunately…
We were enjoying properly time together by exploring surrounding “cities” and ate too when back. I have unpacked other loads of boxes and found “Canned Chipotle Peppers”. Have you ever tried them? Delicious! If you do not know how to use them, have a look below. Those 7 recipes are very nice! 🙂
Have a great start of the week!

I have gone through some pictures and memories over the weekend as I am trying to put everything on place in new home (and it takes so much time 😀 ) and I came across pictures from 2 years ago when I was pregnant and we went for summer holiday to Mexico. By the way, not that great idea when you are in third trimester and it is hot as hell 😀 However, we went and food was amazing… I could not eat anything spicy at that time, I simply hated it… so… I tried this delicious dish “Chiles en Nogada”. It is very different and I would have never said that it is Mexican dish, but here it is…
I have tried it, the combination of tastes was different and very interesting, but to be honest… I would not go for it again. However, I will – as I was pregnant and my senses could have been influenced by our little growing monkey at that time 🙂
If you have opportunity to try this dish… give it a go. It is completely different! My mum in law loves it ❤
