Chilaquiles

December 30, 2016

Mexican comfort food. Can you think of a better way to start the New Year than with a bowl of tortilla chips simmered in salsa and topped with a fried egg, cheese, avocado, onion and cilantro? The hardest part is the gathering of the ingredients. If you can put some salsa in a pot and fry an egg, you’ve got this.

Let Rick Bayless guide you through your first time using a handful of prepared ingredients. After that you’ll find yourself making them on the fly for breakfast lunch and dinner. http://www.fronterafiesta.com/cook/starters-snacks-a-light-meals/355-chilaquiles-with-salsa-and-eggs-

Reason to Celebrate

May 3, 2019

It’s May. And if that wasn’t reason enough to celebrate, this first weekend brings us both the Kentucky Derby and Cinco de Mayo. Like we needed an excuse for a delightful Bourbon cocktail or quick plate of Mexican. So, what’ll it be? Maybe both.

Take your pick for lunch on a Sunday… Chilaquiles or Lentil Tacos. No bad choices here. https://simplequietmodern.com/?s=Chilaquiles https://simplequietmodern.com/2017/05/02/lentil-tacos/

Congratulations

January 1, 2019

We’ve made it through another year. It was exhausting, wasn’t it?  So much literal crazy coming from every which way at an unbelievable pace. So, as we start the New Year with a crisp clean page I’ve jotted down a few thoughts and observations to keep in mind as we go forward. Ideas that aren’t particularly new, but if put into practice might be able to affect a more positive productive change. And, if we start with ourselves and our surroundings it might just work its way up to the top. Here’s hoping.

No one likes a sore loser.

Cheaters never win.

Think before you speak.

It’s OK to say no.

Do the right thing.

Send someone some love.

Be good to yourself.

Keep it simple.

A glass of something sparkling and a plate of Chilaquiles would also be a comforting and festive start. Happy New Year!
