Skinny Margarita Los Mariachis Mexican Food in Wallingford, CT. This place is the real deal. Family run, freshly made food with an in-town feel and a place to go and just relax. No hustle and bustle of corporate food thankfully! It's a new/old favorite restaurant of ours. The bar area has recently been repainted in darker colors and expanded into a horseshoe shape. Much better for conversation and holds a few more people than before. We like to go to Los Mariachis and eat at the bar for a quick, informal meal once in a while.

We expected that it would be scaled back some for a normal Sunday. Not! I admit I am not doing a Paleo diet 100%, but I was going to keep as close to it as possible. Thankfully, Water's Edge has plenty of Paleo and lo-carb choices including this spectacular selection of fresh shrimp cocktail. They were perfectly crisp and cold and there were plenty of them.

Starting the new year with breakfast egg muffins. I found the recipe on paleospirit.com . It's an awesome paleo site chock full of good stuff for body mind and spirit. Basically for these egg muffins it's cooked crumbled sausage, scrambled eggs (I use eggs from a local farm) some fresh herbs (you choose) and split grape tomatoes. Cook at 350 F for 20 mins or so, then cool. Make sure you oil the muffin tin first. I didn't and they didn't stick too much but a little coconut oil or ghee would add to the flavor.
