If you are anything like me, there are nights that you simply don’t want to go to the grocery store (although mine is a block and a half away, so I don’t have much of an excuse). This recipe uses ingredients that I pretty much always have on hand, and can be adapted really easily to suit your tastes — you could add in some chicken sausage, sprinkle lettuce or cotija cheese on top, make scrambled eggs instead of poached. But in any case, this is an easy, cheap option for weeknight dinners or weekend brunches — and even if it’s still a little cold here in New York (although, compared to what my family is experiencing in Minnesota, it’s practically summer here), I can almost imagine sitting on a beach, maragarita in hand, devouring these tostadas.
Disclaimer: Ari told me that I had to tell you that this is very messy to eat. We tried our luck with forks but ended up just picking up the whole tostada at once. It still tastes good, in any case.
As you can probably tell, I’m a little corn obsessed during the summer. Unfortunately for me, the Midwest is still by far the best place for fresh corn, but the East Coast has put up a pretty good effort over the last couple of months. I’m not even going to bother putting up a recipe for these waffles , since they are extremely similar to these – with the addition of two cups of fresh corn, and the fact that by now I have a little more experience with my camera than previously. I served these for a leisurely breakfast with slices of avocado and fried eggs (mimosas optional), but I think they would also be good with a little ricotta spread over the top.
I love how the fresh corn pops in your mouth and adds such great texture to the waffles. Enjoy!
In an effort to be slightly healthier, Ari and I have started making more fish. Of course, it’s still battered and pan-fried, but still better than a steak, right? Or bacon? Anyways, we made these fish tacos the other night and they not only came together in half an hour, but they were also quite good. And you get your daily serving of vegetables! Everyone wins. Well, except the fish, perhaps. Continue reading
