I've found that growing up in southern CA gives you mad cravings for mexican food throughout your life. Election tacos are my new favorite creation. In fact, I'll be having them for lunch today. Why are they election tacos? Well, it was election night, I wanted them and that's good enough for me.
Any other night they would be fried tempeh tacos. Ingredients:
Tempeh (boiled/simmered for 20 mins and then pan fried in sesame oil and finally splashed with some ume vinegar for extra saltiness)
Caramelized yellow onions
Hot sauce and cilantro to top it off
Not pictured are the sweet potato fries I had along side the tacos. Also I believe a SoCal thing, french fries and mexican food. After my feast I headed to a friends house for some cookie baking(I was less than thrilled with my cookies but everyone else seemed to enjoy them) and election watching. I'm awfully tired because I ended up not getting home until around 1am.
I must mention- YAY THAT PROP 2 PASSED IN CA!!!
What was your election meal?
