My Today And Some Randomness...

January 19, 2010

I got to work from home today,
I like it when that happens.
Actually I spent the day in the kitchen making tomaillo salsas. Several of them.
And very unrelated....a chocolate cake for Rooster to take to church tonight.
It is a great day for me when I get to spend it at home....and in the kitchen.
So....a little information about the,
TOMATILLO..
My creation I
A tomatillo looks like a small green tomato. It is not a small green tomato. We are big fans of the "fried green tomato" around here, and once when my garden was not producing tomatoes, I thought that I would use tomatillos in place of the green tomato....no it did not taste the same.
Tomatillos are commonly used in the Mexican home kitchen. They are used for salsas mostly but sometimes are found in green enchiladas. When they are fresh they come encased in a husk and when removed the outer skin is very sticky. They have a very acidic taste and are quite good when mixed with onion, jalapeno, garlic and cilantro.
YUM!

I just recieved my first blog book! It is very simple, but so much fun!
I was worried about getting my blog into a more physical form, in case something ever happened to it online. Anyway, it has been so fun to read and re-read. The Darlings have enjoyed reading it too! It has now motivated me to make other books....on specific topics.
So much fun!!!

I thought we were the ONLY Nacho Libre fanaticals! Everybody in my household can quote that show word-for-word. Hudson even points at the cover of the DVD and giggles every time I say "Naaaaaaaachhho!"
Now, about that blog book... how do I do this??? Info please!
