if you know me at all, you know i am a VERY picky eater. i don't eat onions, celery, nuts (except pine nuts and pistachios), tomatoes, peppers, etc. except now, you can take something off of the list...i now eat tomatoes! i decided at the beginning of 2009 that i am an adult and it is high time that i start eating like an adult. my fear and hatred of tomatoes is my first step. and i actually like them...a LOT! weird, huh?
on the food note, i did want to share some of what we have been eating lately. while josh and mary elizabeth were here, they told us you can cook lentils and rice in the same pot at the same time. so we cooked rice and lentils and put them on tortillas, added a little sour cream, and it was so good!
then we cooked rice and lentils, added a little cilantro, and ate it on tacos. josh and mary elizabeth brought us a bunch of corn tortillas, and we have been making our own hard tacos (since they only sell them at shoprite here and its about $15 for a pack of 10). all you have to do is heat up about an inch (or a little less) of oil in a skillet, drop the tortilla in for a second, then use forks to hold up one side of the tortilla till it gets its shape. then you flip the tortilla, finish cooking it, and you have a hard taco! we filled the tacos with our rice/lentil/cilantro mixture, added cheese, sour cream (they have it at foodworths right now!), tomatoes (because i now LOVE them!), and a dash of lime...sooo good!
alright, now that i have made myself really hungry, i will end this blog. i did take a picture of our tacos, so i will add it soon...then you can see for yourself the tomatoes i ate!
