What WOULD Bekki Eat?

Well, I'll start with what I wouldn't eat. I wouldn't eat margarine. Or tofu. Or lowered-fat anything. Olestra is right out. Hydrolyzed, isolated, evaporated, enriched, or chocolate flavored "phood" won't pass these lips.
What will I eat? Real food. Made-at-home food. Food that my great-great-grandmother could have made, if she had the money and the time. And if she hadn't been so busy trick-riding in a most unladylike way.

Tonight's recipe came from Simply Recipes, one of my favorite food blogs, and certainly the one I use the most. I just love her stuff.

The changes I made, which were made for convenience, speed, and what-I-had-on-hand were: the pork was already smoked, so I made a sauce of cooked onions and garlic, about a cup of salsa verde, and some chicken broth... tossed the chopped pork (faster than shredding when it's super-fridge-cold) in that and stuck it in the oven the way the recipe says. I didn't use the cheese or sour cream, and I shredded up some romaine lettuce instead of cabbage.

It was absolutely delicious on fresh, locally-made corn tortillas.

About Me

My photo
Tejas, United States
I am many things... all at the same time. (No wonder I don't get much done!) I am a wife to a retired infantryman, mother of 3, stocker (and stalker) of the fridge, passionate fan of food, nutrition, ecology, coffee, wine, and college football. I love all things witchy and piratey. I often cook with booze. I feed stray cats. I don't believe in sunscreen. I don't like shoes and really hate socks. And I currently can't eat any gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, coconut(!?), or sodium metabisulfite (aw, shucks, no chemical snackies.) Sometimes even citric acid gets me. But only sometimes.
