mi pueblo es su pueblo
more pantry pilfering since we didn't go grocery shopping again. it's sort of a good thing since it's keeping money in my account and also because it is making me find ways to use the food (and cookbooks!) i already do have. i've only a few more weeks to make up my mind for thanksgiving menu and i looked through some ideas from last year. i decided to try nava atlas' pueblo corn pie since i had everything but the bell pepper and i asked my mom to pick that up on her way home the other day. last night i did a double check and realized i didn't have diced tomatoes. i had whole tomatoes that i could dice so it wasn't a big deal.
i had to go to the library at lunch so i could get a quick walk in and also to slowly start returning all of the books i have borrowed in the last month and a half. there are a few small markets in the older part of town so i thought i could stop in and check for my tomatoes really quick. they had the tomatoes and to be safe i also got more cornmeal. next time i will do a better first check so my double check doesn't induce ingredient shortage freakout. i ended up not needing more cornmeal but i have plenty for next time and there will definitely be a next time.
back to the point, the pueblo corn pie was muy delicioso. we topped it with tofutti sour supreme and it was even more fantastico. i'm not sure how pretty it is supposed to turn out, but trust me it tastes better than it looks.
here is how not to win the cookie fight:
