Anywaysers, like I was saying it’s Friday. Last day of school for my now official first grader. WHAT?????!!!! And you know what that means right? Time for some good eatin’. Time to throw a tostada party—like a taco bar but with crispy, fried tortillas that get topped with all kinds of goodness.
On the menu for tonight is the most yieldingly tender braised pork, classic refried black beans and an incredible arbol chile sauce that gives the tostadas a tongue-tingling jolt. The fun part of any tostada party is that you can just lay out all the fixins and everyone can make their own, piling their tortillas with whatever combination floats their boat (read: great for feeding kids).
This summer’s going to be a doozy what with travel, kids, pool passes, and who knows what else. I want you guys to summer along with me. Where are you going? Europe? Disneyland? Your backyard? What are you excited about? What do you want to learn?
I wish I was going to the Italian Rivera to spend the summer lounging on the beach and eating incredible food but instead I just watched this awesome video on how to change the oil in my lawn mower. For me this summer is going to be about tackling those things that I’ve put off forever. Learning, evolving, growing. I’m feeling a little overwhelmed by it all but deep breaths, deep breaths.
So let’s get started. Let’s make some tostadas, drink a cold one, and get ready to do this thang.
