It lives!

It’s been a while. Just for grins I thought I’d update this blog. Today’s lunch was pretty easy to assemble. I had a stack of corn tortillas that I decided to fresh fry crisp in moderately heated canola oil. I tend to overheat oil for frying, but I think I got it right this time. I had on hand some homemade chili (grass fed ground beef, red onion, crushed and minced garlic, chili powder, cumin seeds, tomato paste, catsup, Kosher salt, fresh ground black pepper, filtered water) and some homemade Pinto beans that were brined overnight in salted, filtered water (pintos, red onion, chili powder, cumin seeds, catsup {see a pattern?}. Topped it with mixed baby greens and some fresh cilantro and freshly grated sharp cheddar cheese and a drizzle of extra virgin Spanish olive oil.
