Lunch at Lori's
Our neighbours, Lori and Chuy, have a taco stand just around the corner and down the street from the Casita. The stand is pink, so we call it the "Pink Palace". Lori starts to cook early in the morning and then starts to serve around noon. Chuy retired several years ago, and although he doesn't do any of the cooking, he acts as Lori's 'gofer', fetching water, serving the food, and clearing the tables. Chuy does take regular breaks however, and we often hear him at home during the day, practicing his trumpet.
Mike and I were having an 'at home' day today and spent the morning doing the usual house stuff. We did a load of laundry, swept the terrace, and also made a pot of spagetti for dinner tonight. However, this is Thursday, and Lori's special of the day is Chili Rellanos. So, off we went for lunch.
Lori and Chuy are very popular and their seats are always full. We make sure to get there early!
These are the peppers
and the peppers again, at the next stage
Lori was hard at work, but as usual,was smiling.
Lunch was delicious, as usual, and cost us 36 pesos each. At today's exchange rate, that's $3.00!!
