Hosting friends from chilly Minnesota

LOCATION: In our tiny house in Mission, Texas

WEATHER: Sunny. High 72

Our friends Dan and Joan Tomlinson came to visit us from Rochester, Minnesota. Unfortunately, they arrived a day late due to weather. Too bad that their vacation was cut short by one day, but we still had a great time with them.

On our first day, we walked around our Retama Village community, showing them the amenities and types of houses, then had a nice al fresco lunch with neighbors. We ate world-famous tamales from Delia’s.

In the afternoon, we hiked around the state park nearby, doing some bird-watching. In addition to chachalacas, cardinals, green jays, and black birds, we saw these beautifiul altamira orioles.

DINNER: In keeping with the Tex-Mex theme, we ate fajitas and charro beans for dinner. George grilled the fajita meat on the grill and gave the veg a nice char. Then, I sauteed the vegetables, filled up the tortillas, and finished off with chopped cilantro, guacamole and Mexican cheese. Muy bueno!
