good times & good food

dear summer & jamie,
thank you for the fun nature walk last week. i enjoyed all the talking about food, and it has really got me thinking about what we really do eat around here. in keeping with the topic of our discussions i thought i would pass along a few things that we do that relate to that discussion, especially for you, summer, to see what you can sneak in on andrew. :) ENJOY! and i look forward to more discussions and more of the things you do.

love jennifer

p.s. here's the instructions for the tostadas that are to die for!



Bean tostadas

white corn tortillas
refried beans (vegetarian if keeping with what we talked about); i occasionally make my own using a technique like this
lettuce
tomato
onion
avocado
salsa
sour cream
jalapeno peppers
any other topping you like; corn is good, too

the only trick is getting the shells cooked just right. to do that, pour approximately 1/2 inch oil in the bottom of a small frying pan. heat on medium high; wait until oil is very hot. drop the tortillas in one at a time and cook on each side for a few seconds until crisp. they cook fast. be sure they look pretty golden before pulling them out or else they will be chewy. once your tortillas are done, then load them up with all of your toppings. be prepared with lots of tortillas; you will probably want a few! :)
