As we find ourselves in June, I am reminded that Summer Vacations are right around the corner.
Its official, the year is half over already!
Yes, it is warm now however, summer in the Tropics simply cannot be beat. The afternoon and evening storms that often bring thunder and lightning are a site to behold and will create memories which will last for a lifetime. This is my favorite time of the year!
Have you made plans for your next Vacation in Paradise?
A few choice and popular locations for this Summer are –
**Boutique Hotel in Sayulita – Everyone’s happy place!
Sayulita is one of the top attractions in Riviera Nayarit. Sayulita breaths such an International aire and is a place that you can find International Surfing events, art galleries and a gastronomic diversity with a style of its own.

Cooking with Armando
I am sure you all know my now, that I am big on the preparation of Comfort Foods either comfort meals of my Mexico but also Comfort Meals that I have tried elsewhere.
An all-time favorite of mine is the Hamburger Potato Casserole.
Imagine layers of potato, beef, and cream of mushroom soup.
The potatoes always turn out tender and once the cheese melts at the end, you will have a dinner that was worth waiting for.
