I can’t believe how tired I feel today after the fun and busy weekend we just had. Cooking for thirty people and partying afterwards is no laughing matter anymore for me. I am not 23 anymore and I am starting to feel it, LOL. Anyway, today is a busy day in What’s Cooking because I have a lot of things to post about.
First we have a winner for the SCANPAN 10″ eco-friendly fry-pan. We had seven participants and random.org picked number 5. Congratulations Anniepooh! A brand new pan will be on its way to your house soon! A true foodie like yourself deserves the best and not that pan you are still using, hehe. You will be able to throw it away soon
Second, Homemade #4 – Tortillas was a big success. We didn’t have a ton of entries, but the ones we did have were so amazing that I feel so proud of each and every single participant. Great job everybody! Now you can proudly say that you are a true tortilla maker Here are the entries:
Ivy wasn’t sure she was going to be able to make tortillas using her non-stick skillet, but she did an amazing job making her own whole-wheat sun dried tomato tortillas for the very first time. She used them for fajitas:
Joan Nova and her Family Food Fight Team took the challenge very seriously. They collectively made the tortillas and individually made the toppings. This is what I call team work and they did a great job:
Thank you everyone for participating. This has been my favorite Homemade challenge so far. I will be posting this month’s challenge sometime this week. I need to make it and get some pictures of it. So stay tuned!
And speaking of tortillas, for my Foodbuzz taco party on Saturday I didn’t make my own tortillas. Originally I was thinking about it, but when I saw that the list of guests kept growing I decided to buy them from a tortilleria close to my house. In Mexico most people don’t make their own tortillas anymore. They buy them fresh from tortillerias, shops with big machines that have one single purpose: making toritllas. I bought too many of them and now I have 9 dozens in my fridge and freezer. At least I won’t have to worry about making tortillas for a while.
Two of the tacos I made for my event on Saturday were cochinita pibil (a traditional dish from the Yucatan peninsula) and al pastor tacos. I was going to write about these tacos, but I will let youtube do that for me today (I am still tired and can’t think straight, LOL)
And here’s a very talented, but shy, taquero (taco chef):
I didn’t get any pictures of my al pastor tacos served with my pineapple pico de gallo salsa, but I leave you with the picture of cochinita pibil. You can get the recipe for these delicious tacos here.
I am sending this post to June’s Go Ahead Honey is Gluten-Free hosted by Carol, because corn tortillas are gluten-free and can be more manly (this month’s theme) than pork spicy tacos, right?
