Vacation fun

There's so much to tell that I don't know where to start. But I think I'll start by talking about the food! ; )
I think San Diego has the best Mexican food. And oh, how we miss it. The only place that almost compares to it here, doesn't serve GUACAMOLE and it's so very sad.

But my sweet family made tons of GUACAMOLE in honor of our visit!!!
We had it all the time! My nieces made it, my mom made it and my sister made me the biggest bowl of it I'd ever seen! (we are talking about 12 avocados!!!) Ahh! It was too fun!
Twice, I had the chance to eat one of my favorite meals -rolled tacos with of course, lots of GUACAMOLE!! I was so excited I had to take a picture...

We were also treated to some wonderful Greek food by our dear friends and I'll tell about them later.

On Sunday we had a fun family get together after church. And more Mexican food! My mom made her Mexican Delight which is one of our family's favorites. She used to make when we were kids and we had a bunch of people over. It's great for a crowd! Be sure to serve this with lots of GUACAMOLE like she does. It's so good!

My mom's Mexican Delight

(we usually double or even quadruple this since we only make it for large groups)

1 lb. ground beef
1 onion chopped
8 oz tomato sauce
1 can tomato paste
3 empty tomato paste cans of water
2 T. sugar
2 ground garlic cloves
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. salt
rice

Brown the ground beef and onions in a large pot. Then add the other ingredients and cook for 40 min. Then add one cup of cooked rice.

Serve over Frito's

Serve with grated cheese, chopped onions, tomatoes, lettuce, olives, salsa, sour cream and GUACAMOLE!

Looks like we're both looking at each other's recipes. I am definitely trying this Mexican delight--this week--maybe tomorrow. I think I have everything.
