Southwestern Spicy Mesquite Barbecued Chicken Flatbread Pizza
This is another one of my Flatbread pizza creations. Barbecued chicken thigh fillets marinated and rubbed with mesquite seasoning, smoked paprika, cayenne, black pepper and bacon fat, grilled and cubed. Other toppings are sliced red onions, sliced orange bell peppers, Chipotle salsa mixed with nacho cheese - salsa and dried oregano, and mozzarella cheese all on top of mini flatbreads.Serve with wedges of lemon or lime and sour cream on the side.
Blue Corn Chicken Tacos
Blue Corn tortilla shells, shredded lettuce, cilantro, white onions, Chipotle salsa, Chipotle hot pepper sauce, Sour cream, shredded manchego cheese and chicken seasoned with taco and Mexican adobo seasoning, dried oregano and red chili flakes.
* I know I titled this “tacos”, but I ate this like a salad (only my husband was patient enough to stuff all these fillings in his taco shells) because I just crumbled the shells over my pile of taco ingredients, dug my fork in the pile and applied forkful after forkful to my face, was so tired doing house chores all day.
What can I say, I love boats.
Fresh, yummy oysters at the Ferry Building, SF with my friend Roxane…. we ate oysters after coffee from Blue Bottle. Yes, we started our day with that unbeatable combo.
Brunch at Coqueta
Enjoyed champagne and tapas with my dear friend Roxane last Friday. We had Jamon iberico- manchego cheese- Spanish olive and sardine bites, patatas bravas crispy and smokey with smoked paprika and aioli, shrimps sautéed in garlic and olive oil served with grilled bread, octopus cooked perfectly, and smoked salmon on toasted brioche with cream cheese and chives, Truffled honey and black truffles. Then for dessert, manchego cheese cake pops with caramel popcorn and churros with rich chocolate dip and raspberry powder.
I must apologize because I completely forgot all the exact names of the tapas we had, all I can manage is a decent description, but everything was great.
