KETCHUP

Three tomatoes are walking down the street -- a poppa tomato, a momma tomato, and a little baby tomato. Baby tomato starts lagging behind. Poppa tomato gets angry, goes over to the baby tomato, and squishes him... and says,'Ketchup.'

Ha! I love that joke! Anyway, it just dawned on me that I never posted pics of the delicious food my friend and I had when we went on a mission to "Ketchup", a hip lil' restaurant in Hollywood, CA. A bit over priced but a fun and cool environment. We shared a crab macaroni n' cheese appetizer, and each had an entrée.


Ketchup!


I was afraid this appetizer was going to have too much crab, since I'm not
a big seafood fan, but the crab was minimal and the macaroni was oh so cheesy!
And it was topped with toasted panko bread crumbs!! SO good!


Can't remember what Diana's plate was called, I think Air borne Chicken or
something like that. Chicken and veggies with mashed taters underneath.


My plate was chicken as well, and served with the same sides.
Not too crazy about the taters, but the chicken was like a fancy shake n' bake.
Veggies were nice and tender :-) ... The End.

Baked Eggs and Tortilla in a Creamy Tomato Sauce

Sorry Christina! Stop reading this! This recipe has eggs!! LOL ... Anyway, this is from my monthly Martha Stewart recipe catalogs. Pretty simple and pretty tasty. Kind of reminded me of an enchilada casserole or another version of chilaquiles, but I had it for dinner so I guess we'll go with casserole. All you need is onions, garlic, can of crushed tomatoes, a bit of half n' half, tortillas, eggs and cheese. And salt and pepper and all that jazz of course. First time I think I made my food come out like the magazine pictures, except mine is a lil' toasty, but so what! Serve it with some frijoles, or if you're not a true beaner like my friend Diana, then some potatoes would be fantastic!!

Burrito de Chile Relleno




I meant to post this weeks ago but never got around to it. This burrito is from my favorite hole in the wall Mexican restaurant here in ghetto Norwalk, CA called El Taco Rico. I usually get the same thing like enchiladas or flautas, which are deliciously greasy, so I thought I'd try something new. Of course its greasy too!! It's a burrito stuffed with a chile relleno and beans!! FYI the beans are cooked with good ol' fashioned manteca (brings back childhood memories of my abuelita's food :-) Anyway, of course it was delicious. Who doesn't love tortilla, cheese, beans and a huge chile??
