Mexican Madness Birthday

We had a BBQ for my birthday, but I didn't want to do just the usual steaks and sausages.
So at the last minute we went Mexican!

Vegetarian Nachos

Hotplate Chicken
Beef Sizzle Steaks
Spicy Veggies

flour tortillas

Colourful Corn Salad
Corn, Cherry Tomato, Avocado, Red Onion,  Lime juice - mixed
Tomato and Corriander Salsa
A Couple of kinds of Tomato, Red Onuion, Jalepenos, Corriander, blitzed fine
Refried Beans
Brown Onion, 3 Cumin, 1 Corriander, Kidney Beans, chunky mashed
Avocado, Jalepeno, Spring Onion, Garlic, Corriander, 
Crispy Green Salad

Raspberry Birthday Cheesecake
(Attempted) Churros

It was pretty yummy! And as most of it was either cooked in a flash on the BBQ or just thrown together, it was pretty easy. Very tasty and healthy!

My lovely friends rose to the sudden change of plan, and provided a Dinosaur pinata! No-one had every actually had a pinata before, so that was more fun than expected. We hung it from a rope held up high by two people, so it moved around a lot. Always fun when you're blindfolded!
I also spied a very mexican looking pin the tail on the donkey, also surprisingly fun when slightly drunk and blindfold, and your mean friends face you in the wrong direction, or turn the donkey upside down, or move the donkey of the wall completely ...

It was a lot better than this picture suggests!
