Enchiladas Suizas with Quick Avocado Salsa

Tuesday, September 28, 2010


Mr. SGCC is not exactly what you would call a gastronome.  Don’t get me wrong.  He loves to eat and appreciates good food.  But, local and sustainable are words he doesn’t normally associate with with that food.  He doesn’t care if his chicken is free range or if his beef is grass fed. He can’t tell the difference between heirloom tomatoes and any other kind.  And, when it comes to Key lime pie, it’s Sara Lee all the way for him!  As long as whatever dish in front of him tastes good, he’ll eat it.

Mr. SGCC also travels a lot for work.  Several times each month, you’ll find him tooling up and down the highways and in and out of rural towns from Miami to Tallahassee.  Sometimes, he’ll tell me about a guy in Okeechobee he passed selling wild shrimp out of the back of his truck, or a farm stand in Ruskin selling ripe and juicy just-picked tomatoes.  I’ll ask excitedly, “Ooh!  Did you stop and get some?” The answer is always the same.

“Nope. I was in a hurry.  Besides, you can get that stuff here.”

Um….. No, I can’t.  Sigh…..

So, imagine my surprise when he brought a bag full of these home last week.  read more >>
