I saw this on Amateur Gourmet and wanted to make it; figured it was a good pre-hockey carb load for John, and a good, easy meatless meal for me. I thought it was tasty, but nothing dramatic (at least compared to the orgasmic blog chatter I’ve seen about it). John loved it, though, so maybe I’m missing something.

We finally used up the last of the pork tonight; I made tacos (using onion, garlic, cooked pork, taco seasoning, cumin, lime, hot pepper, a little tomato and ginger beer, in case you’re curious). We’re out of beans, so I needed a quick side. I opened a long-lingering-in-the-pantry can of corn, and heated it with a little lime and chili powder. I also made my own take on yellow Spanish rice; it was pretty tasty. The whole meal ended up using up a lot of odds and ends.
I think it’s fun to serve customizable dishes when having people over. This one was semi-inspired by a scene from “Julie and Julia”, where everyone’s ordering their own version of Cobb salad.
