El Tecolote and a bridal show

Today Andy and I had plans with my parents to meet with a prospective DJ and attend a bridal show. (Free cake and champagne, how could we pass the opportunity up?)
We met up with the DJ at Starbucks. We were hesitant about DJs because neither of us are big on dancing and we definitely didn’t want anything cheesy. This DJ’s demeanor and appearance immediately calmed my nerves about a cheesy DJ. He was so professional and nice! I’m pretty sure we have found a winner. Makes me feel accomplished about this wedding planning business.
After our meeting with the DJ, we went to El Tecolote. My family frequented El Tecolote at least once a month when I was younger. I hadn’t been there in a good 3 or 4 years so I was excited to go again.

The front sign. El Tecolote means, “The owl.” The restaurant has quite a collection of owl tchotchke’s and paintings. I love going there because it hasn’t changed in twenty years. I felt like I had been transported back to my childhood upon entering.

My mom and I were crazy and decided on sharing the mini-appetizer combo for two. Does this look mini to you? We barely dug into this! It came with two mini chicken chimichangas, 2 beef taquitos, 2 mini beef tacos, and 2 bean and cheese tostadas. I loved the chicken chimichangas. The shredded chicken was excellent.

Andy got a beef taco, chile rellano and rice. He is napping right now so I can’t ask him what he thought. I’m sure he’ll comment on it soon.

Here is the rice, bean and cheese enchilada plate that came with the appetizer combo. I was too full to touch this unfortunately. My mom and I both wished we had split something smaller. Luckily for me, this meal counted as breakfast and lunch. We’ll do a light dinner tonight hopefully!
After a huge lunch, we drove to the bridal show. I got some ideas for wedding centerpieces.

How adorable is that?

Makes me rethink my wedding colors!

We also sampled some cake. This is lemon and orange. I wasn’t thrilled with either. We are going to make an appointment to do an official cake test next month.
I am tired too so I am going to nap with Andy now. ;) Talk to you later!

Just to recap. The beef taco was good. These sort of places usually have shredded beef tacos that have no flavor. This was ground beef that was certainly simmered in something delicious. The enchilada was pretty standard, but very good. Smothered in the ranchero sauce that was ridiculously good. The Chile Relleno was good. It was small, but not too small and light for a Chile Relleno, which can be WAY heavy if over fried or covered in too much batter. Giant meal of food. Still stuffed 7 hours later.
