I am married to the most wonderful man who I've known more years than I have not! We recently celebrated our 41 years of marriage. Our oldest son is our business partner. We farm in Mexico, growing papaya, honeydew and person-size watermelon. We travel back and forth to Mexico to take care of our business. This son is married and has two children. He lives in Mexico to oversee the business. Our middle son works for Clinical Pathology Lab. His wife is a doctor and recently opened her cosmetic dermatology clinic in Houston. Our youngest son is a realtor in McAllen, Texas, near where we live. He loves his work and his business is steadily growing. We lived in Mexico for three years to get our farming operation going. It was an exciting time for us! My hobbies are genealogy, home decorating and cooking. I love blogging! I am so very blessed to have a loving family... not only the family my husband and I created, but also my family of friends. Fall and winter months are when I enjoy blogging the most. Seasons change and I love keeping up with the change in my home. I have had some amazing experiences with my faith in Christ and I truly feel that God is always with me. I try to live my life the way God would have me live it.
It's cabrito time... goat is one of my husband's favorite meats. This one was very fresh. We know the man who raised it... and his are the best. The only places I have eaten cabrito are on the border with Mexico and in Mexico around Monterrey, Saltillo to be exact. We prepare ours by seasoning it with sea salt, fresh cracked pepper, a little meat tenderizer just to help it stay moist, and a little garlic powder. I baked it covered in a 325 degree oven for about 3 hours, cut it up and then put it on the grill to crispen it up and finish the cooking. It was so tender and moist. We like to eat it with guacamole, pico de gallo, fresh Mexican lime juice squeezed on top and then stuffed inside a hot corn tortilla. This is just the best meal... and served with a cold Tecate Light beer!!
