Of all the tacos out there, why are fish tacos just so much better? It’s like they were just meant to be, with the light and flaky fish baked in chili and lime and butter, plus a solidly delicious charred corn tortilla plus a good fresh (peach?) salsa and maybe a sauce such as spicy mayo because what is this blog if not an ongoing love letter to sauce.
Today I want to talk to you, person who has been eating out a lot lately and avoiding the grocery store since right around the beginning of June. You know who you are – I’m talking to my friends who have enjoyed many-a-delicious meal from food trucks, coffee shops, breweries, brunch spots, outdoor restaurants, bakeries, and tea bars, all within the last 48 hours. The ones whose ice cream cone game has been ON POINT over the last 6 weeks. The ones whose love for eating out with friends and family and, really, to be honest, just anyone who will grab a meal with you, between bike rides and beach trips and lazy afternoons “working from home” miiiight be the reason that you’ve basically forgotten how to cook a meal. Eggs? Toast? How do we do this again? It’s mid-July and the living is good and you’re waving the white flag on meal prep, all because one little word: #summer.
Yeah, hi. You think you can hide, but I see you and I know you because I AM YOU.
