5 Ways to Show Gratitude to the People That Make You Thankful

Image
Tis the season to ponder over things that make us feel thankful. For example, we are very thankful that we get to see so many friendly, familiar faces at our Lake of the Ozarks Mexican restaurant on a regular basis. We show our gratitude by offering quality customer service and special events like Taco Tuesday and Fiesta Friday. If there's someone that you believe deserves your gratitude this year, Mexicali Blues has a few ideas on how you can show them. 


Tell Them
Don't just assume that someone knows how grateful you are to have them in your life. You need to actually tell them. Even if they know it already, it's always a nice thing to hear. You can do this through compliments, write it down in a thank you card, or simply say the words "Thank you!" Go the extra mile and detail to that special person exactly what makes you thankful they are a part of your life. 

Buy Them Dinner

Which is Your Favorite Fajita Meat? Steak, Chicken, or Shrimp!

Image
A very popular menu item at our Lake of the Ozarks Mexican restaurant is the fantastic fajita. Not only are the flavors of this amazing dish delicious, but most people find that building their own customized fajitas at the table adds some fun to the meal too. Perhaps the toughest part about ordering fajitas for dinner at Mexicali Blues is deciding which meat to order.  


Fantastic Fajita Choices
In case you are unfamiliar with this particular dish, a fajita consists of grilled to order meat on a bed of onions and peppers served on a hot skillet. It comes with warm flour tortillas and a plate full of additional toppings that include rice, beans, lettuce, cheese, sour cream, and tomatoes. Once this all makes its way to the table, you are free to build your own fajita any way that you prefer.      

*Steak
Since classic fajitas were made from beef, steak is an obvious choice. The rich, bold flavors of our grilled steak meat make for an irresistible meal and the peppers and onions grilled along…

Mexico's Version of Halloween Lasts 3 Entire Days

Image
Halloween will be here in just a couple of weeks. It is celebrated in the United States on October 31 every year. In Mexico, however, they extend their holiday into a 3-day celebration ending with Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) on November 2. Since you trust Mexicali Blues to bring you the best Mexican food at the Lake of the Ozarks, we decided to also share the details about this wonderful Mexican tradition with you in today's blog.  



All Hallows' Eve
Mexico combines All Hallow's Eve on October 31, All Saints' Day on November 1, and the Day of the Dead on November 2 into one big 3-day-long celebration. Children dress up in costumes and go door-to-door asking for candy on All Hallows' Eve, much like children in the United States do for Halloween. Instead of saying "Trick or Treat" when doors are opened, they instead shout "Queremos Halloween!" (We want Halloween!) 

The day is referred to as All Hallows' Eve because it falls on the day bef…
