I had a wonderful meal at a local restaurant yesterday, Zocalo: Mexican Grill & Tequileria, with my family to celebrate Valentine's Day. I enjoyed a beef tenderloin filet topped with roasted red peppers and goat cheese with grilled veggies and a really wonderful combination of sweet potato flavored with chipolte peppers ( spicy, smokey, sweet) and for dessert, we shared a tres leches cake with meringue frosting.
How about you? Have you celebrated yet, or are you planning something special today?
