Taco Tour '10

The first St. George Taco Tour in Ryan's rockin' bus was officially off the hook. Sweet tunes, yummy tacos and, as always, great company. Andersons, Stanleys, Roberts, Mathis and new members Empeys were present. We ordered carnitas at each place and rated them (1-5) according to flavor, presentation, texture and salsa. We also gave them an overall score. Here is the breakdown, from best to worst, of the average overall score:

4.5 Irmitas in washington
4.25 Jalapenos
4 Irmitas on 700 S.
3.75 Leo's (Leo was especially charming and his horchata was really good)
3 Roberto's
2.5 El Amate
1.5 Avaros

We also had some good discussions about those of you that didn't show up. FYI some of you are treading on thin ice.

Tapas Night Explained

OK, so we decided this month's theme on a bit of a whim. Then we thought, "What will we prepare?". If you search Tapas online, you will return some odd Spanish-inspired, sometimes-unappetizing results; alas, do not be afraid. The Tapas we had in mind fall more within the bounds of finger foods or appetizers even. If you so choose to be a little more traditionally Spanish, this is certainly encouraged and indeed flair might be encouraged even more. Here are a few links and the Wikipedia entry.

We'll send a text of our address and directions beginning at Anderson's Junction. Really for you Santa Clarans, it's a quick trip mostly on I-15. We hope you all can make it. See you on the 29th at 6:30.

Does This Pig Even Exist?

The answer is YES! This is Nate posting on behalf of the not-so-tech-savvy Mandi. June's gathering will take place on the 27th at 6.30p at the Mathis residence. Mark it and do what you can to make it, because this date and time is the one. Mandi says she will provide the roasted pig, or at least arrange it (I think their was discussion on all chipping in at the Stanleys). Also, bring your own best efforts within the Polynesian theme. Spread the news.

It has been brought to my attention, that I poorly communicated the date of the next Josh Stanley FOODIES club. Would Sat. June 20th work for everyone? I was thinking the 13th, but I forgot the Roberts were born to run, and have a marathon that day. Let me know about the 20th. We will be burying a pig, so make it a priority. Cheers, Mandi

Easy Sticky Buns

This recipe is from Ina Garten and really is so easy. I omitted the pecans and raisins, pecans might not be so bad, but who really likes raisins in their sticky buns? gross. I don't use frozen puff pastry that often, but now I'm going to stock my freezer with it. Nate said they put dark chocolate in the middle of puff pastry and bake it and I can't get that idea out of my head. soo yummy.
