If you have ever dipped a french fry in guacamole, you clearly have good taste in food! If you've dipped a french fry in GUACAMOLE...topped with SOUR CREAM, CHOPPED STEAK and CHEESE, then you're most likely from Southern California...AND have good taste in food!
ALL HAIL CARNE ASADA FRIES!!!
|Just LOOK at all that sunny goodness!!! Mi Amor!!!|
Today is my birthday...My 41st BIRTHDAY! YIKES! (kidding) I much prefer the 41 year old me to the 21 year old me. I don't really feel the need to explain. Those who have 20 years, (or a few more), under their belt, know what I'm talking about! Life is incredible! And I am so grateful!
That being said, if you know me at all, you knew there wasn't going to be a cake featured today. (Not a cake and frosting kinda girl...) Carne Asada Fries are the only sweet goodness I need! Quite possibly my most favorite food ever! And MOST definitely a Birthday Worthy dish!

P.S. I photographed this dish outside on my patio. To me, it completely captures the essence of Southern California: Warm, Sunny, and always Delicious. Enjoy!
