Authentic Mexican Birthday - Ole!

Last night was my principal Susan's birthday and since we're in San Antonio, we HAD to do it up Mexican style. The locals recommended us heading off the beaten path to Mi Tierra restaurant. Walking in we knew we had come to the right place! The lobby is a Mexican bakery - we resisted but it sure looked good!

We had Susan serenaded by mariachis in Spanish and English! Then ordered our food trying to ignore the fact that "tender young goat baked to perfection" was on the menu and when it came...bleeeech! It was yucky! I personally ordered chicken and I'm not 100% sure it wasn't goat - two bites was all I could stomach. Why am I telling you this? After our trip to Hollywood, people want to know about the fabulous food we're eating. Well, so far, that is not happening, BUT we did have a great time otherwise and it was an adventure!

Happy Birthday Susan!
