|An actual cold grill!|
This is Burgh Gourmand. The pictures may not always be appetizing, but I guarantee the food was great!
It was snowy and cold out, so I decided to cook up some deep, warming food that would power a long session of snow shoveling or just watching old movies on the couch. Both require energy. Andy was hanging out and we didn't want to drive somewhere to pick up a protein. So, let's go with eggs and a can of La Costena refried black beans from Las Palmas in Brookline.
This little project started out as just a big skillet of scrambled warming food. Then I realized there was leftover French bread from Oakmont Bakery. Mexican sandwich you ask? Yes. It's called a torta, and just like Paella, it's a platform for leftovers. Usually there's a meat and some veggies in there too, but not this time. Just a huge mess of molten goodness :)
|Double-day old baguette from Oakmont bakery, still great. Note impromptu hoodie potholder.|
|Not the most flattering picture again, but I'm just starting out here.|
Refried black beans, organic eggs, garlic infused olive oil, queso, roasted tomato & corn salsa, pepper & salt. Served over toasted, oiled French bread. Last of the Kenya Thiriku from Counter Culture through a Bellman with some steamed milk. We made it for six hours without being hungry. Although I should have bottled up some coffee in a Thermos for the ride up to Mom's house and back. Thanks, Andy, for keeping me awake with your company.
