No, don't go looking at this blog that way. The Blogger powers that be are watching...

Yes, I think I have corrected the problem of someone putting links in my comment section of this blog. I was told to add word confirmation & it seemed to work. The sad people who sit around trying to mess with blogs & photo pages have depraved minds finding joy in chaos!!!! So, all is well again with the Texas to Mexico blog. I will continue to yammer on about life here, there & continue posting recipes & photos. If the flipping strange links start up again someone better make mine a double. (Tech issues throw me & take some time to work out!)

This new recipe is based on a new favorite Spinach Shrimp salad. We had this in Torreon & thought the home version might be even better...

Spinach Shrimp Salad
4 Tbsp. red onion, chopped & caramalized in 2 Tbsp. olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced, add to the pan of onion & olive oil
1 dozen fresh large Gulf shrimp, cleaned: saute in same pan as onion
1/4 cup toasted, Texas pecans
1/2 medium cucumber, sliced & peeled
1 medium mango, sliced
Layer all of the above ingredients on bed of spinach while it is warm & add Asian Sesame dressing.
1 bag of spinach, washed

Asian Sesame Dressing
1/3 c. rice vinegar
1/4 c. soy sauce
2 tbsp. water
1 tsp. sesame oil
1/2 tsp. sesame seed
2/3 c. vegetable oil
1 tsp. powdered ginger

Combine first 5 ingredients in jar with tight fitting lid and shake well. Add oil and shake again. Chill until ready to serve. Makes about 1 1/2 cups.

Buen Provencho!

Looks very tasty...did you really have to note that the spinach had to be washed? :) I'm just teasing, you'll jave to make it next time you are home.

eNice to have you back! I missed you and your colorful photos! Pretty cat! My cat now reminds me of how your previous cat was in her old age...bony and delicate. Although, now that Sassy's almost bald, you can tell he's still pretty sinewy.

Lauren, you know in Mexico I wash, rinse, disinfect it all! I have to clean the heck out of things...got a little carried away on my instructions there! LOL!
Claudiah~Glad to be back! I'm sorry Sassy is aging like our Sylvia did. They do tend to get so skinny when they do.
