Aye, Aye, Aye

Hi Fans! It's been a while since I've last posted, but I'm back!  I had a bit of issues with allergies so I wasn't making new recipes and then my parents visited.  We took them to lots of great places, but no places that were new to us.   On Saturday, we actually tried two new places.  The first place we visited was Doghouse Drinkery and Dog Park.  It was a dog park with a bar, located near us.  We attended a fundraiser there for a shelter.  Lola got her picture taken with the Easter Bunny, took an IQ test, and had so much fun running around the park with the other dogs.  It was cute that she would run with dogs and then check in with us.  She also made friends with lots of people at the event.  We were only there for a few hours, but she was so tired afterwards.  She took a nap on my lap when we got home and we had to wake her up for dinner so we could go to dinner.  We opted to try Cielito Lindo located not too far from us in Cedar Park.  We nearly missed it hidden in a little strip mall, but we were glad we didn't!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       


We started off with chips, salsa, and queso.  The salsa had a smoky flavor that built into something a bit more spicy.  In contrast, the queso was smooth and creamy, without a kick.  We enjoyed both as we checked out the menu and weighed our options. 


I chose the enchiladas verde with chicken.  My meal was completed with rice and black beans.  I was very happy with my food.  The enchiladas were tasty.  The chicken was nice and juicy and the verde sauce was amazing.  It had excellent flavor and was the perfect choice for me. 


Mike opted to create his own dinner with tamales colorado, rice, and a giant pork taco!  Mike's food was yummy, too.  We both were quite stuffed after finishing our dinner and were a little sad that we didn't have any room left to try out the tres leches cake!  Our meal was also cheap, but we got a bang for our buck!  We will definitely head back next time we are looking for a more authentic Mexican meal, rather than the typical Tex Mex places we frequent.  We also look forward to sharing our find with our next set of visitors.
