So while I have been honest about the dire straits of my cooking during the remodel of our kitchen, I have not confessed the reason I’ve been so slow posting things around here. I’ve been getting my blogging fix in another place as well and neglected this site. Ouch. If you are dying to know more about my kitchen remodel and simply must know where to catch more than you are getting here, you can get way too much of it here.
Yes, as I was making these tacos (and my lame excuse for lousy pictures) my house looked like this:
Yes, all of the flooring and furniture is gone from the entire first floor, so I am cooking tacos on the fire place in an electric skillet. You understand the average pictures- right?
And to add to the sadness- here is the dish zone in the kitchen.
Graciously the madness did come to an end. And the new flooring went in, and I stopped cooking in an electric skillet sitting on the fireplace. But I’m not sad for the few days I was doing it. A sprinkle of salty fresh cheese crisped on the skillet, topped with a yellow-gold egg, fried until crisp on the underside and then slipped into soft corn tortilla and topped with chunks of cool avocado. Oh, tasty-any-time-of-day meal. They were totally worth it; both days in a row that I made them.
Note: Quality of the ingredients really comes through on a recipe this simple. Good stuff makes a world of difference, but even with when I’ve been stuck with mundane ones, I still happily ate the tacos anyway.
Fried Egg and Avocado Tacos
for each taco:
1 tablespoon of crumbled fresh cheeoilse (a Mexican cojita or Feta)
1/4 of a medium avocado
a bit of oil
Heat a skillet to medium high heat, and add a smidge of oil. Swirl around to coat the pan. Spinkle the cheese on the skillet and then crack the egg over the cheese in the skillet. Season with a bit of sea salt and pepper. Cover the pan so egg can cook through. When the egg is cooked to your liking- I like mine a bit soft, with the bottom crispy- slip it into a warmed tortilla, and top with diced avocado. Salt and pepper avocado, and enjoy.
