I love Mexican foods. We have build a burrito night and the kids come over and we just have a blast.
Here is a little kind of like pesto but they don't call it that in the resturants.

one bunch of cilantro minced
3 clove of garlic minced
1 tsp powdered garlic
mix together cover with olive oil

serve this over meats and fish as a compliment wow is it good.

I was talking to a couple of teenage girls at church the other day and asked them if they had ever put peanuts in their coke. They had never heard of such a thing. I guess it's a southern thing.

I remember Randy. I also remember sucking peppermint and jolly ranchers apple in a lemon.

I bought some peanuts for my 8 year old grandson when we went to the corner store. I tried to show him how to put them in his soda. He didn't want to but wanted to drink my soda with the peanuts in it.

Laurie, I wouldn't expect you to know about the peanuts in the coke. LOL I don't know if that is restricted to the southland, but that is where the practice started, I'm sure. It may have even started with Dr. Pepper and that one started in Texas. I remember they used to advertise that you should have a Dr. Pepper at 10:00, 2:00, and 4:00. That would rot your teeth out.

Randy peanuts and Pepsi is definitely a Southern "thing". I will be 60 this year and have done it all my life. When Dewey became a diabetic 16+ years ago we switched to peanuts and diet Mountain Dew. People don't knock it til you try it. hehehehe

I haven't had a can/bottle of regular pop since I was diagnosed with diabetes. I didn't drink that much of it anyway, but I have bought some diet root beer and diet Dr. Pepper. I don't drink much of it though. I'll have to pick up some peanuts though and gross my wife out. LOL I like to tease her about being a German and a Yankee. She takes it pretty well.

Rich buys soda pop in bottles when he can. He likes this Creme Soda, I can't remember the brand. He gets it at WalMart!
Randy, tell her to try it she might just like it! LOL

I can suggest it to her. About the only pop she will drink is diet root beer. I always liked cream soda. There is a local brewery in Portland that makes a cream soda that is very tasty. I haven't had any for quite a few years though. They make several other non-alcoholic beverages as well and they get a pretty fancy price for them.
