The little house on a cat tree is a favorite of several of our kittehs.
Cubed tilapia, seasoned, tossed in oil, and pan fried. The tortillas were deep fried and filled with the fish, pico de gallo, and queso fresco.
They folded over easily into a burrito shape to eat. I used a spoon to add the refried beans and guacamole. Cholula hot sauce is a fave.
Lightly breaded tilapia with peppers and a few sides made a good lunch. It’s been over a year since we visited the little store run by some Amish. Since we were both fully vaccinated it seemed safe enough. It is the only place I know to buy those jumbo ridged elbows. I also bought a brick of sliced American cheese because Kroger has stopped carrying it. Makes good grilled cheese and I am deaf to your “but.. but.. it’s not real cheese”. Also: Velveeta.
I’m getting near the bottom of my bag of fried onions.
I used Italian sausage links in this but the next time I’ll try to use bulk sausage instead. Brown the sausage, add a can of tomato bits, a can of hominy, and some stock. I used chicken stock. Squirt in some tomato paste from one of those toothpaste looking tubes, a couple of tablespoons of corn starch in a slurry to thicken, and whatever herbs and spices that you like. I went with Tex-Mex flavors: garlic, oregano, cumin, and coriander. I’d bet that Italian flavors would work well. Fresh spinach would add color and more texture.
