If you have a split personality I can’t be friends with you. Or you.


Here, come on over and have this really good beef dinner with me. All of you.

Mexican Beef With Crispy Potatoes


2 lbs small red potatoes, quartered
7 Tbs vegetable oil
3 Tbs minced cilantro
2 green onions, minced

1 garlic clove, minced

Avocado slices, to garnish

Recipe from Cook’s Country Magazine

Oh, all of these split personalities.

Morrissey. I could make an exception and be friends with him and him.

I love the lyrics in this song.

“I am two people
One you know
but don’t like
The other one
you don’t know
but you don’t want to….

I have two faces
One of which you know
the other one
for your sake
I never would show”

Morrissey-I Am Two People

  1. Making this for dinner tonight!

  2. Delicious. The potatoes were the biggest hit, especially since I cooked them long enough to allow the shallots to get crispy. Next time, I’m replacing the vinegar with lime juice, though,for a zingier taste. Cooked the beef until it carmelized, and it was perfect. Thanks for this recipe. (The beef is good when stuffed into a warm tortilla, too.)

  3. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your blog?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only
    having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    • Thanks so much for the feedback. It is very much appreciated.

      That post was from my first year blogging. I think that I have made some improvements in the photo quantity and quality, as well as the text proportions. However, it continues to be a work in progress!

      I was thinking about changing the layout, but the prospect is quite daunting to me as my web skills are limited. One of these days…

      Again, thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment! x
