When you need spice...

Well, one of the few chicken dishes that our young gentlemen will eat is fajitas. As far as I can tell, this is one of those dishes that you don't really ever use a recipe for. Probably people who are more compelled to go authentic wouldn't do this, but the key to fajita taste success among the Brackenbury-Parysek Tribe is Fajita Spice from Penzeys. Well, we buy all our spices from Penzeys and anyone who don't know about them should, because they have everything, it's all high quality and the prices are reasonable. So check it out: Penzeys.

As to the fajitas, we add water, corn oil, and lime juice to the Fajita Spice, marinate the chicken strips, fry 'em up, add 'em into flour tortillas, add some rice, some slow-sauteed pepper and onion, some salsa, and some shredded lettuce and just chow it down. Life is good. If you start with 3 pounds of skinless boneless, you might even have some for leftovers!


  1. Gumbo from "Epicurious iPhone " tonight. Yum. Coconut oil for everything these days. I still have this Indian Dvd and the black cumin. Island Time, man. Also, wondering if your shoes are a concern, with your Museum book? I'll get in touch with Jean. Happy Valentines Day!

  2. Oh I completely forgot that you even had my shoes! And I've no idea which museum book you even have! The shoes I will wear again. The book you need not worry about.

    I sooooo need island time. How much longer are you there for? What if we come in august?
