Fajitas for dinner. Leftover steak and chicken, a little taco seasoning, warm tortillas, sauteed onions and peppers. Salsa, sour cream, lettuce, tomato, jalapenos, guacamole. Easy to make. Good to eat. Good for parties since everything can be made ahead and just heated at the last moment.

Wonder how they get the sizzle in the restaurants? With cheap and plentiful ingredients presentation is everything. Cast iron skillets preheated in the oven and a little lime juice squeezed on at the last minute. Would that get the sizzle? I think about those little individual cast iron skillets you see sometimes. Decorated serving platters with little bowls for condiments. I can see where a few serving pieces could make a fajita party special. Here is one item I impulsively purchased at the grocery store. A beautiful clear pitcher (plastic) with a lid and even a cooling tube. Perfect for Sangria. And how about watermelon for desert?
