    Tortilla Thursday #605!

    The topic of tortillas was a 'hot' subject for the last few days.

    So why not a Tortilla Thursday?

    Growing up in a household where a warm tortilla - corn or flour - was always a welcome thing to come home to?

    Why not have a taco/burrito bar?


    We have Quesadillas - plain cheese and with every filling you can imagine.

    Tacos, crunchy and soft - pork, beef and chicken, all the toppings you want.

    Sopes, thick corn rounds with beans, shredded meats and toppings and who can forget the BURRITO!

    We have Mexican beers, margaritas and aguas frescas (fresh waters) made of fruits....

    After being sick for almost two weeks, I need a party!!

    DOne!

    Orc has volunteered to be the tortilla press.....not sure how I feel about that. Just keep the spicy stuff away from Angel unless you want a jet-propelled puppy.

    The Sopes do sound good, I think I'll just have a fw of those washed down with some beer.

    We're getting a new supermarket in my neighborhood in a few weeks, they are hiring and putting up signs. The Dominick's (Safeway brand) closed almost a year ago. The location is being taken over by Tony's, which is a Chicago based small chain. There's one near where my mom and dad used to live, and my dad took me there a few times. It's multi-ethnic, in that they stock items that are bought by the Hispanic and Eastern European families who live in the area. So I hope the one coming to my neighborhood will be the same. They carry locally made Polish sausage, breads, dumplings and pierogi, plus a selection of Mexican cheeses, produce and chorizo. And the usual supermarket stuff too. I like to shop there because it's multi-lingual, multi-cultural, and usually pretty busy. So I'll have an agua fresca with you
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    LOL, Un Smorgasboard Mexicano!



    CM,
    I came across some Soy Chorizo when I lived in CA, I tried it and it was really good.

    If you like if for breakfast?

    Cube up some potatoes and cook them up, put them aside and put some chorizo in and cook it until it renders off the grease. drain and put the potatoes back in and crack an egg or two.....scramble the eggs up and spoon the mixture into a preheated tortilla.....It's awesome, You need to play around with the portions - mex cooking is always an adventure.


    One agua fresca!

    DONE.

    They did, however, make good frisbees, which were always in demand!

    There is a Non-Rose Parade that is held in Pasadena CA. It's called the Doo Dah Parade.

    For years, people would show up with tortillas to throw during the parade.

    The police finally put a stop to the pratice, people were getting hurt.

    I did read that the practice has begun again recently...... I did get a chance to see it one year in person and it was everything I thought it would be.....Especially the Bastard Sons of Lee Marvin and the Briefcase Drill Team....

    Refills and margaritas for everyone.

    Done.
