28) Taco VS Burritos. Where do you stand on this important issue?
I love both but taco offers more feasting for the eyes where as burrito, depending on the circumstance is more convenient. With blue corn on the brain since the ‘Something blue’ prompt I eventually found a bag of blue cornmeal -though not masa- I mixed it with boiled water and flour. It was a bit stiff but held together for the most part. Tempeh, sweet potato, red pepper, avocado, fresh corn, kale, radish, lemon and sea salt.
The winter my fellow vegan friend Mathew was cooking solo on the farm he had just gotten back from Mexico with a bag full of peppers & spices and was raving about all the tacos he ate. He said eating tacos everyday felt akin to what he imagines enlightenment would be like. I said I could easily eat tacos everyday. He asked if I wanted to join him on the ‘Taco Diet to Enlightenment’? I shook his hand and said ‘Yes!”
Six weeks of tacos lunch and dinner. He made fresh tortillas with a press he bought in Mexico. It was a deep, snowy winter show and some days I would just want hot soup but hot soup is not taco. While the rest of the company warmed their faces over a steaming bowl, I warmed mine over a fresh plate. If I couldn’t finish dinner, I finished it for breakfast. Each meal was a variation and I never grew tired of the medium. By the end of the run I did feel that sense of calm and peace with the world that Matt described. He went on to open two successful taquerias in the city.
