Here is What you are missing

Here is what you are missing if you don't follow me on instagram or the dreaded FB..I really like instagram better!

What tostada defines your eating style? 
Are you a picky eater and just want beans and cheese?
Do you like everything topped with a sunny side up egg? 🍳(Black beans, pork, avocados,onions, radishes, cilantro with a dash of Marie Sharps?)
Maybe your a vegetarian and just want all the veggies..actually it is vegan too cause there is no queso
Or are you a meat and cheese🐖 kind of a person? Loaded with double carnita meat and queso fresco 
You could be a mutant and wouldn't eat a bite of any of it because its a fried corn tortilla

This is why Sophia is my over achiever. She wrote this poem for her English class, she then drew a picture inspired by shel silverstein. If you read poem, you will know it is "her" leaning against the tree, her younger self.is catching the apple.

When I was very young, I would walk on all fours and not my feet. 
I would cry and cry, then go to sleep.
When I was very young, I would ask for my teddy bear,
Over and over again till my parents could not bare.
When I was very  young life seemed simple,
And I wouldn’t have to constantly worry about getting a pimple.
When I was very young,  I was as delicate as  a flower,
And I would do my own thing, hour by hour.
When I was very young I could sleep in until noon,
And my parents wouldn’t force me to go outside in June.
When I was very young, lullabies would be sung,
And I would drift away when a church bell was rung.
When I was very young my biggest fear was falling. 
Now that I’m older I am searching for my calling.
When I was very young I had very little knowledge,
Now look how far I’ve come, soon I’ll be off to college. 

totally pimped out my Maruchan Ramen Noodle bowl.

Made crispy friefd tofu, perfect boiled egg, nori, tons of greens onions and spinich

my fav no cook meal!

I have been wanting a picture of all 3 kiddies, finally got it..

Wow , Baby doll from Sucker punch , Link from Zelda, and Cleopatra..well from Egypt

Pork Pozole Verde

this is from over a week ago, my sinus were wreaking havoc on me, So I made a pot of Pork Pozole Verde. Only big bowls of love will when I am sick!

the ingredients you need to roast/broil.
poblano peppers
jalapeno peppers

  Set your oven rack 2 notches down and broil on high, checking frequently and turn half way through.  You may be wondering is this necessary?  Trust me, i was so tired the day I made this and suffering from a sinus infection and I really wanted to skip this step, but when you roast/broil your veggies they will get a nice char and a sweetness to them...so all in all..yes do this step!

the end result of broiling your veggies

Saute your your pork in batches.  Make sure to mariatite your pork for at least 30 minutes before you sear.
1 1/2 lbs of country style pork ribs cut in bite size pieces
1. tbs of dried organo
1.tbs of cumin
1 tbs salt
1/2 tbs of chipotle powder

sauteed  pork.

 You may be asking yourself "self, why do I saute the pork first" well, Heidi is here to tell ya...you are going to leave  these great "burnt" bits of flavor to the bottom of your pot.  you then add a little stock and scrape all that flavor up with a wooden spoon

After you scrape up all those great bits of flavor add a tablespoon of garlic.  ( I ain't gonna lie, I did double on this because I was sick!)

Blend all of these ingredients together:
your broiled veggies
pumpkin seeds
add blended ingredients, pork and stock to pot.  cook till pork is tender then add hominy

Ladle in bowls top with queso fresco, radishes, pumpkin seeds and I personally like a dollop of sour cream and avocado wedges and then sliced onion
