Subject: RE: BS: Recipes - what are we eating?
My favorite Mexican restaurant (not TexMex) is open for take-out orders only. I picked up two chimichanga orders yesterday (it's a big messy tortilla rolled around smoky beef and cheese and I get it topped with the ranchero sauce, not the queso.) They're huge and the most prudent way to approach this is to eat half and save the rest so I have a couple more days worth of food from that pickup. Their chili rellenos are fabulous - you can get them with the beef or with cheese. The poblano pepper is singed and peeled, then a slit allows to remove seeds and stuff the contents. It's dipped in an eggy batter and fried and is to die for. And their fish and shrimp dishes are wonderful (it has the beef and chicken dishes but is mainly a seafood restaurant.)
I have a couple of loaves of homemade whole wheat bread baking. I gave bread to the neighbors and to my ex yesterday, but didn't keep any for myself. A lot of this will go in the freezer.
