La Fonda is a (one of many) small Mexican restaurant, here in Shafter. We have more than our share, but that's the demographic of this region. DH and I prefer this one to any of the others, the food is authentic and it is always served piping hot!
It is a walk up and order, then they bring it to your table, type of place.
The menu has pictures too........incase you can't read Spanish.......LOL! The prices are reasonable for this area. You might be able to read it if you click on the photo and enlarge it......or just take my word for it...*grin*
I snuck a picture, over the wall, where we were sitting, not many people last Tuesday. It is usually packed at lunch time, but this was the day after Labor Day. Rather a boring place, no art on the walls at all, there are three TVs, all on Spanish stations. All I have is a very limited amount of Spanish, so I occasionally catch a word here and there.
I usually have a diet Pepsi when I come here, not crazy about Styrofoam cups......but the straw helps. DH orders water and just puts a shot of iced tea in it......it is so weak I wonder why he bothers, I think it is because when you order water you at least get a plastic glass!
The food arrives..........I had a chili verde chimichunga .......a green chili, pork, deep fried burrito...more or less. They are always this huge! DH had a shredded beef taco and a bean and cheese enchilada, and we shared a side of rice and beans. I have tried many of their dishes, but this is my favorite......makes my taste buds dance......
........and it is so BIG I get lunch for the next day too!
All these delicious photos are in honor of T Stands for Tuesday......with the T-gang.
During the summer Valarie.......Bastelmania Blog posted this photo:
I just fell in love with it and asked her if I could "attempt" to paint it (always ask permission!)
She said it would be fine, and I could use any of her photos..........in THAT case I'd be painting forever....for each week she has an array of gorgeous photos she shares. But I thought I'd start with this one......or attempt it anyway........
I really, really enjoyed painting this, even though the bricks were a bit tricky. Being a stamper, I just made me a stamp, with friendly foam, mounted it on a piece of wood, dipped into the paint and stamped each brick..........I'm NOT the best brick layer......LOL!
THANK YOU VALARIE SO MUCH FOR LETTING ME USE YOUR PHOTO!!
So that wraps up this post, time to hop around and see what everyone else is sharing for T-Day!
