Noche de Tostadas!

February 29th

Tostada night

Last night’s community dinner was potluck due to my crazy work week. I have a giant fundraiser tomorrow night and have been a bit overwhelmed this week. I still needed my dose of Thursday night community dinner, and when I suggested potluck, everyone was sweet and agreed.

We had chicken tostadas, spinach salad, quesadillas, guacamole and a yummy bean dip that I am craving again this morning — all with some fabulous wine Amanda brought that I hadn’t ever heard of before. Tostadas are my very favorite Mexican food. I could eat them every day. Chicken, black bean and guacamole is my favorite combination.

And of course there was dessert. I made chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. Morag made a wonderful margarita fruit salad.

I realize this blog is heavy on the food lately. With a roommate I simply don’t have the same room to craft. And with this work project, I haven’t had the time to work around the space issue. Thankfully next week is clear and my CAOK project list is ready for some attention.

Now, off to find some eggs for a tostada breakfast…

  1. Sounds delicious!(And, you must share that recipe – I don’t like raisins, so I’d be all over those chocolate chip oatmeal cookies!)

  2. Mmmmm… black beans & guac. Margarita fruit salad?! Any chance you have that recipe?!

  3. I made black bean tacos the other night and they were soooooooo good. I mixed a can of refried black beans in with the ground turkey taco meat – it made the perfect consistancy and the meat didn’t just fall off like it sometimes does. I hadn’t made tacos at home in AGES! Put that back on the “frequent meals” list!

    And I posted something to the CAOK pool today – finally! I had been wanting to do it for agaes and finally got the chance.

    Cheers, Kelli! Have a great weekend and good luck with your fundraiser!

  4. YUM YUM YUM. I have to admit though, my sweet tooth is calling out most for those cookies….

  5. Yum, yum – tostadas sound great! Is it strange that now I’m craving them, even though it’s only 10:30 in the morning?

  6. Oh man..I’m really hungry now..

  7. Looks yummy! Hope your fundraiser goes well my friend. Fingers crossed for you….. 🙂

  8. Tostadas could be my new favorite Mexican food. A friend made them for lunch a while ago and they were delicious and so easy. She mixed the meat from a deboned rotisserie chicken (sotre bought), a can of Veg All and some mayo. Top with a few dashes of hot sauce and you’ve got a Chicken Salad Tostada.

  9. And we’re gonna complain about a food-heavy blog? Naaaaaah, never! Good luck with your big fundraiser.

  10. I love all the food entries!
    I think that its great you have a night with your friends and food… I need to get something like that going in my life too!

  11. Oh man, I love all the food entries too! I am craving bean dip, and it’s 10 in the morning!
