We found the cactus at the Grand Canyon. This was another trip to Arizona. As a side trip my son and I drove to the Canyon. He found this giant glass cactus and could not leave the state without it. We couldn't carry it on the plane (it's huge and would not pass the overhead bin test). They agreed to ship it to our home address if we paid the shipping. It was worth every penny and of course reminds me of one of the perfect days in my life.
It's made of small glass squares (which take a mountain of time to clean). The glass is stacked on top of each other until it builds the cactus. The edges are sharp so we tend not to touch it. But it's so unique that whenever we have people over they always comment on it.
The plates and glasses are a bright color and with February being the doldrums of winter, I needed something that reminded me of sunshine and warmth.
And what Mexican meal would be complete without MARGARITAS! I don't remember if they were the first drink that I really liked after I became of legal drinking age, but if not they were close. I love them frozen.
My daughter loved it when I spread the chips all over the table. She got to eat them. And her Margarita was virgin.
Here's a full table view. Well it's time to eat. We're having re-fried beans, a taco salad, rice, enchiladas, chips, salsa, and beef tacos.

If you can't be in the southwest, at least you can eat as if you were. Enjoy.
