Chicken Fajitas

Fajitas – They make you happy.
Fajitas- For when you’re down low

I know the original song was Tequila but both are from Mexico and this song enters my head.

UK weather in March? Crazy – snow one day, melted the next day, cold, so so cold, rain and hail. It puts me off going out so I chill at home, cooking, watching cooking TV shows, watching films and playing computer games (not a bad life I admit). I watched Taxi Driver recently. It was not what I expected and was slightly disappointed. It was better than some other films which I watched recently, which were so bad I won’t even mention them by name.

I’m starting to love Mexican food and I used to use Fajita kits. They were really nice. I attempted to make it myself once using a Gordon Ramsay recipe and it just didn’t turn out very well (sorry Ramsay). However, this new recipe is fantastic!
