We are back from Dallas. It was…..I don’t know, hot. Like holy crap, hot! You Southerners have an intense heat tolerance, I bow down to you. I was sweating the moment I stepped out of the airport, I’m pretty sure it was 110°F at midnight. What do they call that? Oh yeah….sultry.
No, it was fun. For the first time ever Louisa got to celebrate her birthday with all of her 13 cousins—that water balloon fight was on. We ate amazingly delicious burgers at Rodeo Goat—I had a little sweet corn-guajillo mayonnaise-cotija number that I’ll be recreating at home with a quickness, aaaaand got in tons of family time, so all-in-all it was a solid vacation.
Now we’re back and my garden is bursting at the seams with all things summer so I made up this Mexican version of a summertime classic to share with you, because if there is anything that will get you in the cooking mood it’s fresh vegetables picked from your own backyard.
We’ve got homemade aged white cheddar cornbread, crispy bacon, loads of ripe tomatoes, and some charred chile strips just to keep things interesting. Top all that with a smoky bacon vinaigrette and I’m going to stop typing now, I have a feeling you’ve stopped reading and are already in the kitchen.
