« on: May 05, 2010, 11:38:21 AM »

What are you folks cooking at home fixing for this early May celebration?

I'm still planning.

I was thinking maybe tacos. We had a black bean version a couple of weeks ago with a poblano chile and red onion that was pretty good. Maybe I will make tortillas too if I have time.

I was going to head over to Bone Garden Cantina, but my best gal didn't ask me...

So I'll do some skirt steak, some beans, some mango salsa, and perhaps shave a bit of Corn on the cob into the steak roll-up?

I did find some decent Blanco tequila..  so we may have ONE Margarita.

Tacos at home, using rotisserie chicken from Pubix (or mebbe Costco--haven't decided yet), avocado, and homemade salsa, which is pretty much the only way I eat those chickens.  If I had a grill, I'd do carne asada tacos instead.

Going to a crowded Mexican resto on Cinco de Mayo is like going to a crowded Irish pub on St. Paddy's Day--more effort than it's worth.  I have friends who make a point of doing the opposite: go to an Irish pub on Cinco de Mayo and a Mexican place on St. Paddy's Day.

We had ramen and sake at Yakitori Jinbei. It wasn't crowded at all.  :)
Food is my favorite.

I stopped by BHFM on the way home, not that it is on my way home, and picked up some things for dinner and decided to make fish tacos. Very nice with mayo with chipolte chili power, urfa, cilantro and lemon juice. We had toppings of tomato, lettuce, serrano chilis, red onion, cilantro and Myer lemons.

I had softball last night and the game was at 7:30.  We lost 12-14 but we're still #1 in our league.

Considering I'm the cook at home and time was limited, we had a quick-made polenta soup with some bread and a poached farm egg.

Did you deep fry the fish Andy?  They look really good.  That is the way you would have fresh fish tacos in the Southern Baja.. Deep fried with a very thin battered coating..

Fish taco's were my second choice, the skirt steak roll-ups turned out very good, with nice leftovers.
