Don't you just hate it when your caption disappears 😣 Let's try this again, last night's pizza pocket dinner used two pantry sauces made last week from Preservation Pantry by @spicymarshall the Green Enchilada Sauce and the Mango Barbeque Sauce. I was inspired by the smoked chicken enchiladas but didn't have time to make them. Yesterday my parents brought home Jack and Ewan while the rest of us were at the back to school bash. Enter make ahead pizza pockets, just pop in the toaster oven for a couple minutes when you get home. Sunday night we grilled pizza and Josh tossed on a few chicken breasts after the pizza. I popped the extra pizza dough (a @jamieoliver recipe) in the fridge for a slow overnight rise. Then Monday afternoon I pulled out the dough and chicken. Half the chopped chicken was covered in green enchilada sauce and half with mango bbq sauce. The enchilada pizza pockets got colby cheddar cheese. The mango bbq pizza pockets got leftover diced potatoes, red onion and a little sharp cheddar. They turned out wonderful, I was partial to the enchilada ones. The green enchilada sauce used green tomatoes, swipe to see our garden tomatoes used. I also added tomatillos since I didn't have enough green tomatoes. The mango bbq sauce is quite tasty, I know the boys will use it often. And now inhale a stocked pantry, actually it's getting pretty full! This is my submission for #rainydaybitescookbookclub
First year tomatillo grower and HOLY COW! It exploded overnight. If I had known it’d get as crazy as it did then I would have grabbed a larger cage and staked it bc the plant can’t hold all that it is producing. Jonny is cooking up some salsa verde to jar with what we have harvested so far. #tomatillos#salsaverde#doellinggarden
Roasted Tomatillo Salsa 🍈🌱.
Farmers market finds inspired me to try something new and I did not regret it! It’s a one pan wonder roasting everything in the oven at 500 degrees for 15 minutes (tomatillos, garlic cloves, jalapeno, and a quarter onion), except the fresh lime and cilantro. Throw it all in a blender/food processor with some salt and pepper and 💥. To my surprise, this had a lovely sweetness to it.
Have you met Randall and Antonio Jones? They are my husband’s Labor of Love to me.
🇲🇽 Since moving to Germany, I’ve really missed salsa verde and recipes with tomatillos. This Spring he bought tomatillo seeds (you can buy anything on @amazon) and started nurturing me up some seedling. I rudely referred to them as his “babies” as he even cross-pollinated them with a Q-Tip this Spring. They truly became his children.
We lost Antonio during our 2 week holiday to the 🇺🇸 but his brother has beat the odds and given us enough tomatillos this week to finally make some salsa verde!
🇲🇽 We plan to have a moment of silence before enjoying our harvest in Antonio’s honor. If you aren’t totally creeped out by our humor as #americansingermany check us out tomorrow to see our salsa feast!
This is me participating in #tacotuesday only because I need everyone to realize what a real taco is and that you need it in your life ASAP! Street tacos are seriously THE best kind of tacos and I can get down on quite a few with no shame!
If you’ve never had street tacos you’re seriously missing out. Just some corn tortillas stuffed with meat, (the possibilities are ENDLESS), topped with chopped cilantro, onion, your favorite salsa, and a squirt of lime juice. So. Dang. DELICIOSO!
This weekend I went to our local carnicería, (butcher shop), and bought some discada for these tacos. Discada probably differs from place to place but the discada I’ve always had includes pork, chorizo, steak, and sometimes veggies and always marinated in this delicious adobo sauce. I’m in serious need of perfecting this myself but am lucky enough to have it available for a quick dinner.
With that said, you can make any kind of meat and make amazing street tacos. I like to make some steak marinated in a little lime juice, salt, onion, and cilantro. Chorizo tacos are easy and yummy. You can make marinated chicken, carnitas, barbacoa... 🤤🤤🤤
Don’t forget to make some quick and easy homemade salsa. A few posts back I posted about making my favorite: salsa verde. Key to the best salsa ever: roast your veggies!! Game changer for sure! 💫 #whole30 Tip: have the meat, veggies, and salsa on top of some cauli rice or grilled veggies to make a street taco bowl! •
• 🌶 🌮 What’s your favorite kind of tacos?! Btw tacos al pastor are hands down my ultimate favorite!! Give me like 10 and I’m set! 💃🏽 •
Good morning beautiful people. These are the pictures from this mornings produce haul. The nectarines were 3 cases for $10 (12 per case), mangoes $5.25 per case (I bought 3, priced in stores at $0.98 a piece: see last pic), pomegranates $4.50 for the case of 15, yellow bell peppers $1.47, poblano peppers $0.65, tomatillos $0.78 and calabaza squash 2.7 lbs for $1.06.
Thanks to the advice of my brother I stopped by HEB and found a bunch of produce 50% off (prices listed above) including Organic Kale originally $1.98 but bought the last 3 for $0.98 a piece (not shown here). Makes me want to drive to another location to see what they have 😆
Last week I went to an event held by @lagoodfood about Regenerative Farming. As you all know I’m a Garden Teacher with a non-profit. Been doing it for the last two years. And I’ll be honest, in the last few months I have been questioning is this my purpose? Should I be looking into something else? I was starting to feel unmotivated. And then on Thursday while I sat at one of the table’s for networking and about growing food, one farmer said something along the lines “if we need this shift to happen, we need to teach our KIDS.” And it clicked in my head. This is my purpose. I’m am where I need to be right now. I was reminded why I chose to do this in the first place, even if I’m not out here making the best money (because to me it will never be about the money or becoming rich). Definitely looking forward to this upcoming GARDEN School year!!! Thank you @lagoodfood for a wonderful event! Had to leave earlier to go teach that day and I left so happy and motivated, got to harvest all those goodies in the second picture with my kids! ❤️#gardenteacher#thisismyoffice
Mucho excited about our very 1st tomatoes and #tomatillos . Most were for guests at the @familyfocus_evanston food pantry, the rest were used to make cherry & peach salsa for our 5th Ward Growers to enjoy after their harvest!
