|August 4, 2010||Posted by Vianney under Dinners, Mexican, Uncategorized|
Hello my loves. I hope all is well. My sincerest apologies for being completely absent for the last week, but my family is in town and well my heart has been completely occupied with so much dang cuteness. With my nieces, nephews, my brother and sister- really- my heart cannot take so much love and complete joy. My little sister arrived in town last Thursday and just to have her in Texas has been wonderful. Those with kids can understand that dinner with other adults, where cocktails are consumed and food does not need to be cut into smaller pieces…well that in itself almost brought me to tears. Not leaving the kiddos out we visited a butterfly park and just the sight of those little faces taking in the butterflies, well people I have become a deranged love filled, emotional wreck and semi drunk with so many wines bottles being enjoyed over games of UNO. Yes, we are addicted to UNO and it literally cracks us up that we are able to talk trash, change diapers, hand out snacks, consume 2 bottles of wine all the while still watching our cards. With some much going on I have had little time in the kitchen but a girl’s gotta eat, right? So we whipped up these quick fajitas glazed with guava jelly and cheap tequila (the best for margaritas). If you cannot find guava jelly feel free to use any you have on hand. I have used blackberry with great results, the guava gives these fajitas a tart back ground and the guava infuses these fajitas with a beautiful rich red glaze. Enjoy! Sweet Life
***I will more than likely stay offline until Monday morning to completely focus on our small time together, so please know that yall are in my heart and I cannot wait to visit your fab vlogs when return. Kisses from our house to yours, have a great weekend!!***

2 cups guava jelly
4 cloves minced garlic
4 tbsp fresh lime juice
1/2 cup tequila
add the guava jelly, garlic in a small sauce pan over medium heat, until jelly has dissolved- if the jelly has trouble dissolving add a small amount of water just to help it along. Remove from heat and add tequila and lime juice. Season fajitas with salt and pepper and brush with glaze. Cook on grill or cast iron skillet, basting with glaze as needed.
