While the vegetarian’s away, the omnivore will eat meat.
As I’m a bachelorette for a few days, Margene and her husband invited me over to have dinner last night. Smith made everything from salad to dessert. It was all fabulous, especially the pork ribs he’d been grilling for hours. And the grilled peaches and pears with vanilla ice cream and whiskey sauce? Yum.
I love pork. I think it’s my favorite meat. Especially in Mexican food. Carnitas, chile verde, tamales, etc.
Which is probably why I bought this when I went to Costco:
We will not discuss how silly it was for me to buy two pounds (TWO POUNDS!) of carnitas, when there are two excellent taco carts two blocks from my house. There are, in fact, about a half dozen taco carts within three blocks. It would have made much more sense to just walk over there and buy a couple of tacos de carnitas. I’m blaming it on Costco fever. At least I was clever enough to divide some up into little foil packets to stick in the freezer.
And then there’s this…
I lurves me some corned beef hash and eggs. Gonna go fry some up now. Maybe I’ll have some carnitas on the side.
