Left-over Nacho Migas

Our friends made the most amazing smoked pork nachos to munch on while watching the Seahawks game… it was so tasty, I’m amazed we had left overs. They were too delicious to toss so we wrapped up them in foil to make migas for breakfast. This was my first attempt and it turned out great. In fact, I will probably make too much nachos for now own just knowing we can have migas in the morning! Again, this is one of those recipes that...

Quick and Easy Fresh Tomato Salsa

Cut one jalapeno in half and remove the stem and seeds (carefully!) and add to food processor with a bunch (roughly a cup) of cilantro leaves. Chop for 10 – 20 seconds in food processor. Add juice of one lime and some salt and pepper to taste and give a couple pulses to mix.  NOTE: the next time I make this salsa, I think I'm going to finely grate some of the rind off of the lime to add to the salsa. Add 5 medium tomatoes roughly...

Pulled Pork Taco’s

This morning we hosted a brunch at our home for a group of folks at Talon Title who climbed 69 flights of the Columbia Tower as Dawn's Army.  Dawn is a former co-worker, mother and wife who has battling luekemia for the past few years.  She's a fighter and had quite the crew honoring her at The Big Climb.  Their start time was at 8:30 this morning, so we offered to do brunch for the troup. Along with...

Tonights dinner: Posole

I’ve made this dish once before and it was a big success.  This will be my second attempt and, as usual, I have a few tweaks I’ll need to do to the basic recipe.  I need to be home for a wine delivery from our trip to Sonoma last July and I have a physical therapy appointment right when the UPS truck normally appears…so no time for the grocery store unless UPS shows up before I have to leave. I know this isn’t...

Halftime Heuvos Rancheros

What do you eat when the Seahawks are playing an early game? Heuvos Rancheros, of course!  I prefer my huevos without beans (I am watching the game with my Husband, need I say more?) and this dish is tasty! Serves 2 Fry 2 tortilla’s in pan with olive oil and butter.  My husband prefers flour and likes them crispy.  We only have corn tortilas in the house right now…so that’s what he’ll get (and like...
