Look What We Found!

Wow! Sometimes when you go out to eat or go to the grocery store, you find great surprises! Friday night we celebrated our 43 Anniversary by eating at Spurs. Aw, the music was US Country music with our servers all doing a few line dances. Kinda like home. But, best of all, we had FRY SAUCE to go with our chips. The thought was there even if the taste wasn't quite like home. The sauce was made with Tangy Mayonnaise (think slightly cut back Miracle Whip) and tomato sauce. Tasted yummy anyway.
Spur Salad and French Fry Dressing.

Saturday, we went on a quest. Since I've been off of wheat, it's been hard to find ways to use all of the taco seasoning we have accumulated.  Taco shells are very difficult to find in Botswana. I had been making flour tortillas and they were delicious but alas, no wheat flour. :-(  Plus, we love tacos. Taco shells are very difficult to find in Botswana.  Spars has carried them in the past but we haven't been able to find any lately (read months). We went on a quest to locate taco shells. After 3 stores, look what we found!!!! We are so excited!

We can hardly wait to try them!
We followed the advice of every senior couple who has lived here: "If you find something you want, buy as many as you can and price be Danged!" You never know when you can get them again. These Taco dinners were P65 a piece so for 4 of them, we paid $32. Yes, we did but we are excited to have these meals.
