Here you can find out more about things I eat in Mexico! (I haven’t figured out how to make this blog style yet, so it’s just gonna be one long post until I figure that out.) #julieandjúliaproyecto

Things that I ate that were delicious & know how to cook:

Feb. 18th:

  • Cantaloupe cubes and banana slices covered in honey and granola and amaranth
  • Tostadas (chicken, lettuce, tomato, onion, cheese, and a bit of cream on top of a hard tortillas.)

March 3rd:

  • Yogurt with fruit, granola, raisins, and honey.

Feb. 19th:

  • Hot dogs with a little bit of mayonnaise spread on the bun with ketchup and chiles and onions and tomatoes.

April 27th:

  • Hobo dinners. Not traditional Mexican food but tasty, nonetheless. Directions: Get some cabbage and rip off the leaves so that each leaf forms a bowl. Inside this leafbowl put any variety of cut up vegetables that you would like (we used potatoes, carrots, zucchini, mushrooms, onions, and tomatoes). Make sure you cut them up small so they cook faster. Then cover with a little salt, pepper, more butter than you would like to think you need, and garlic. Put another cabbage leafbowl on top and wrap in tin foil. Then throw the tin foil inside the campfire for about 15 minutes. Take off the campfire, let cool for a few minutes, and test the vegetables. If they are to your liking, eat them. If they are raw, then wrap again and put back on the campfire. I assume this can also be done on a barbecue, but it probably takes longer. You can also put meat and cheese on the inside with the veggies if you want.

May 17th:

  • I have actually had this several times, but just keep forgetting to put it on here. Clericot. Wine (red or white) a little bit of sprite, and chopped up apples thrown in. It’s like a lazy person’s version of sangria.

A long time ago (like January something):

  • White wine, oranges, strawberries, all other stuff that you might want, blended up and served with an orange slice on the edge of the glass.

General great ideas for cooking:

Feb. 18th:

  • Put avocado on everything. Especially sandwiches.
  • Put lime on everything. Especially in soup and instead of salad dressing. Or squeeze 5 limes into a pitcher of water and then add a lot of sugar and then drink it.
  • If you beat the eggs for a really long time before you put them in the pan and then make an omelet, the egg part will be thicker and fluffier
  • When you make an omelet, you can mix the innards with the egg instead of trying to fold it into a pocket
  • Make lots of smoothies
