Hello my food-lovin' friends! I miss ya'll and I'm sorry that I haven't been around to say hi, but I've also LOVED my time with my family. We're in Idaho now, and the weather has been gorgeous. We've been enjoying all sorts of delicious food, especially Mexican food, which is scarce in Philly! I miss food blogging, but I do admit, sitting down to eat without having to take pictures of every plate is nice. I will definitely be back, but I am enjoying the break!
In the meantime, here are some food, and non-food related recommendations for you.
Have you ever tried these tortillas?
I generally prefer corn tortillas over flour, but sometimes they're a bit dry and crumbly for me. La Tortilla Factory makes corn tortillas that are so good, I would practically eat legos off of them. They are very soft, slightly sweet and delightfully chewy. They will not split or crumble at all and will be the shining star of any Mexican dish you'll make. So far I've made enchiladas, taco, quesadillas and fajitas with them and I can't get enough!
And second, I thought I'd share a website that has brought hours of late night giggling. Have you checked out The Oatmeal? It's basically made up of a bunch of silly cartoons, all with different scenarios, but it is HILARIOUS! A few of my favorites are How to Suck at Facebook, Minor Differences, and Ten Reasons to Stop Talking on the Phone. There is a bit of language in them, but they've had me laughing until my tummy ached! My favorite time to read them is late at night, I tend to laugh at everything when I'm sleep deprived.
Anywho, I just wanted to stop in and say hi. I'm going to do my best to check in on your blogs, but if I can't, I will definitely be back sometime in August. I hope you are all having wonderful summers with lots of sun, good company, and of course, great FOOD!
