This is my favorite recent trifecta (or triple win): Mexican Green Rice, Lazy Chiles Rellenos, Yellow Indian Woman beans. I only wish my kids loved it as much as I do. They routinely ask for the beans by name and always manage to choke down a bite each of the rice and rellenos, so I'll call it good.
Roy Choi's memoir L.A. Son, the story of how he came to create the world's most popular taco truck, is a crazy fun ride of a read. In it he describes cabeza (aka beef cheek) tacos as "some of the best things this planet has to offer as food." So of course I had to try them.
This is my family's new favorite noodle recipe, from Vegetable Literacy. It is supposed to be made with kale, but tonight I only had a few leaves of usable kale, a handful of beet greens and a small cabbage. So I washed all the leaves, greens and half of the cabbage, rolled them up, sliced them thin, crumpled them up with salt and oil like the recipe says and proceeded with dinner.
I've used Lisa Fain's Homesick Texan recipe for steak fajitas, so thought I'd try the one she has for chicken in preparation for our Memorial Day camping trip. It's great that she disapproves of the idea of chicken fajitas, in part because the name doesn't make sense (kind of like fava hummus) and also because boneless, skinless chicken breast dries out easily and lacks flavor: I agree.
Yes, again. Tortilla soup for dinner. From yesterday's leftovers. What a great camping trip!
