Oh my…I’m in lust with a new find. Ricos Tacos Moya II here in the city. My Kid had told me about it. I just hadn’t had the chance to go by til today.

imagePictured: Verde(green) and Roja(red) Sauces both are extremely flavorful,. Frijoles(refried Beans), one each Asada(Steak) and Carnitas(Pork) Taco.

This is one happy Angelina(LA Girl). This is what I miss living here. Classic Flavorful Fresh Mexican Food. I will be working my way through the Menu. Next Pozole(Hominy Soup) and then Chile Relleno and then……..and then ?????

Til next time……I’m going to go eat this mouth-watering WOW lunch 🙂

I had an itch for YUMMY baked bottom of the bottle Chicken. I save all the little bits from the bottom of various bottled condiments and mix them all together with either White Wine if I have any or with White Balsamic Vinegar and use the mixture for baking Chicken. It always comes out YUMMY and it is never the same twice. This Chicken dish was made with Creamy Caesar, White Balsamic and Simply Greek Salad Blend.

imageGetting the Chicken ready. Bake at 350F for an hour or more covered.

imageAdd some Veggies under the Chicken. I had some Broccoli, Cauliflower leftover from our Veg-out Platter. I also added some Zucchini and Grape Tomatoes. Cover and bake for 20-30 minutes more. Til veggies are getting tender.

imageI had found some nice fresh Asparagus and the Dinner didn’t seem to have enough veggies for me.

FYI: My Kid added Rice to his Dinner. As seen in the pic above.

When we were out running errands for My Guy’s parents. I kept finding more and more Fruit that looked Yummy. I ended up with so much that a Fruit Salad seemed like the best way to use some of my beautiful bounty. Key word here is SOME 🙂
