Hubby got me a beautiful card today. We worked the market and left about 3:30 as no one was there. We came home, let Coco run around the yard for a while and he wanted to take me to a local Mexican resturant before it got late and it would be crowded due to Mother's Day. The owner is very nice and I had talked to him about what they have on the menu which is not really what the item is. I love chilli relloies and what they serve in most of the resturants here is a slice of bell pepper over the stuffing you want and covered with nocho cheese. He agreed to make me some about two weeks ago and I went by and picked them up. The real thing that is. He came over and sat down and we talked for a long time this evening. I discussed that I was not happy with a lot of foods served as the real thing in our area. He told me that they served what the customers would accept. He said he use to have customers that wanted the real chill relloies and he would make them on weekend and then the economey turned and people were not willing to pay for them and the ones that were came to eat less and less and eat more at home.
When we were paying our bill, he started talking again. Telling us about his family and his children. He is divorced, but discussed about how much time he spends with his children and that he does not come to the resturant on Saturday days as that is the time with his children, the zoo, museums, movies making sure. He was talking about his dogs and cats and that his mother had moved from Mexico, so she would be at his home to help with his children as he has them half the year. He took Hubbies cell phone number. He was talking about his mother cooks authentic Mexican food daily and he wanted to know what I liked. He said he would have her make me some real tamalles and some harmany soup, and other dishes and he will call Hubby and tell him when she will be cooking and for us to come over so I can try a lot of the real foods of his homeland. I am so excited about this as I love trying new foods and the real thing. He said she cooks with fresh and from scratch not like a lot of the things in the resturant industry.
