One of the many luxuries of living in Phoenix is that you are very close to the Mexican border. Since I moved to Arizona, I was befriended by several great people who introduced me well into the ward and their social get-togethers. One of my friend's parents own a beautiful home down in Mexico, where we travel to often to get away from the busy city and professional life that we lead. The drive down to this part of Mexico is roughly 4-hours, but it is so worth it.
The first time we went down, we hired two little Mexican ladies to come to our home and cook an authentic Mexican meal. For a couple of hours, they were preparing a feast. Carne Asada, fresh and legit guacamole dip, freshly diced and prepared Pico de Gallo salsa, homemade tortillas, etc... A Mexican Thanksgiving one might say?! Indeed it was. Not only did they make enough food for 15 individuals that evening, but we had so much leftovers that we were fed for the entire weekend! Such a wonderful thing.
