the nytimes published an article this morning about breakfast tacos in austin. it was like the author went down there, *discovered* them, and came back and wrote an article about this indigenous food that austinites eat, never realizing that transplants like myself have been cooking them at home for YEARS, because no one here makes them. or makes them well.
my brother is actually an excellent taco maker, though his are more like burritos.
coincidentally, tracy and i ate tacos last saturday morning before i made jordan's cupcakes. flour tortillas filled with scrambled eggs, cayenne black beans, onion, avocado, tomato, monterey jack, and salsa. with a side of grilled garlic potatoes in a variety of colors. take that, new york. maybe it's time i start my own breakfast taco spot.
