life with cait - Lighthouse Point & Mexican Noms




Cait took me on my first real visit to Point Roberts at Lightouse Park

we had the sweetest spot all made up for us when we arrived.  the last visitors had created a circle out of beach wood, with a little table!.  everyone was cozy under the blanket snacking on noms.


enjoying life

later that night...
Mexican Communal Dinner


guess who's stoked!

we decided on Mexican based on this weekend's Westham delivery.  along with each order, they also have a nice little write up and/or recipe and this week featured everything needed to make a salsa.  we discussed bare bones at the beach and i bought a few things to add on the way home.  scoured through some recipes and ended up making enough for a DIY TACO NIGHT.


from cuesa.org

3 tomatillos heated on mediume with veg oil on pan until thoroughly charred
2 avocados
1 cup creme fraiche/sour cream/plain yogurt
1/2 lime juice
salt to taste
Sriracha for heat (optional)


BLEND


fresh tiny tomatoes from Westham on da man


chloe is always first at the table
sometimes 40 minutes before it is ready


chorizo & potato hash
OR
fresh pan seared halibut



choice of 3 toppings

real simple 


both cait's mom and brother joined us for dinner.  the more the merrier.  we all went to town downing 3-4 tacos each, mixing and matching proteins with variations of toppings.  everything was so good and made for excellent leftovers!


and then kevin made gluten-free homemade churros
(sub regular flour for Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free All Purpose Baking Flour)

and i made some chocolate fondue because the only thing better than deep-fried dough rolled in sugar and cinnamon is giving them warm dark chocolate hats!


nobody enjoyed them


especially not chloe

breakfast leftovers to be continued...
