Friday's party is getting closer and I have a pretty good menu worked out in my mind. The theme is "architectural nuevo San Diego" aka: fancy mexican food.
Pepitas and other little snacks, maybe some fruit with chili powder
Tres Equis beer, pomegranate margaritas on the rocks
Stacked salad of julienned jicama, apples, arugula, manchego with a citrus cilantro dressing.
Deconstructed carnitas tacos: roasted pork loin seasoned with oregano, chili powder and garlic served with roasted jalepenos stuffed with queso asadero, fingerling potatoes, roasted tomatoes, fresh avocado and tostada strips.
I haven't finalized this. I'm leaning toward brownies and homemade cinnamon ice cream.
