Wow, I have a sweet, sweet love hangover from my hot harina date. I'm even a little sore.

It took a few tries to crank out a decent approximation of a tortilla, but it was worth it. The recipe that came with the press called for far too much water.

I had it with some green chili I made from a recipe in Gourmet magazine. Yeah. I ate like a freakin' queen last night.

Oh, now I'm really hungry!

Sounds great, bux. So when I visit you, you'll be providing us with a royal meal created with homemade tortillas?

Sure. I will even have servants standing by to fan us with palm leaves.

(that seems sort of royal...?)

I love food. I get so upset when it disappoints me.

Hmm. I've never tried using one of those. Do you have one at home? What sorts of sandwiches do you make?

Divine Miss M: what food has recently disappointed you? It's alright to cry. We're here to help!

So, I bought some lard today:



I'm using it to make flour tortillas.

Anyway, if you've ever had issues or fears about food, I heartily encourage you to go out and buy some lard; it's incredibly liberating. You can look at the cashier and the other folks waiting in line and say "Yeah. I'm buying lard. What's it to ya?"

You can even throw it away as soon as you get home, without using it!

Be free. Buy lard.

Yes, my son gave me one for Christmas. I love it!

You can make any kind of sandwich with pretty much any kind of bread. You really don't even need an actual specialized press.

I typically make three varieties. A Cuban, a grilled chicken pesto with grilled peppers, or a grilled portobello and veggies. YUM!

My favorite kind of cake is chocolate cake with peanut butter icing. And it has to be homemade.

I've never had peanut butter icing. That DOES sound delicious.

Is the masa for tortillas the same as the masa for tamales? I can't be sure based on my internet travels.

I'm all cornfused!

The short answer is yes.

If you were to buy prepared masa harina in a grocery store you could use it to make both corn tortillas and tamales.

In a typical Mexican kitchen there would most likely be subtle variations. Always water with corn tortillas, mostly always stock with tamales... little stuff like that.

Dia, do they mix the cheese into the burger? I think we could modify my recipe for veggie burgers to add cheese. I haven't tried it yet but I'm due to make another batch. I'll post the recipe tonight when I get home, in my other veggie protein thread if you want.

The Boca Cheeseburgers (and All American Burgers, which also have a bit of cheese and much less sodium, I've discovered) have tiny little pieces of cheese mixed into the burger, from what I can see.

thanks in advance for that recipe!

I just drank a diet, caffeine free coke.

What was the point of that?

- do you have a trader joe's? they have some good veggie burgers, including my new obsession- marsala veggie burgers, like samosa!!!!
also morningstar has a spicy black bean burger that is really good.

I find i do not like most of Boca's product, fwiw.

Nope, no TJ's here. I forgot about the spicy black bean burger. I love it; thanks! And I like the Quorn patties, too, though I haven't tried the gruyere one you recommended yet.

Will definitely have to get the black bean burger on my next market run.
