Chile Toreado

At the Margarita Latin Grill in Burke, VA, tonight, I had some Chicken Tortilla Soup. On the side, I had something I'd never seen before, Chile Toreado. A jalapeño is roasted or charred in a frypan, then served in soy sauce. Sometimes, a serrano is used, or ponzu sauce, or soy sauce with lime. Sometimes, a little chopped onion is added. This is a side dish often served in taquerias and sushi bars in Mexico.

Is "Meet the Press" a Radio Show?

Speaking of Donald Trump & Chuck Todd, is "Meet the Press" now a radio show? Donald Trump is the only interviewee consistently permitted to be interviewed over the phone. Ben Carson was on screen today from Jordan. Trump, from God knows where, phoned it in. Any interviewer knows that demeanor is an essential part of an interview. If Trump had been permitted to give his South Carolina speech by phone, we'd never have seen his outrageous mocking of Serge Kovaleski. Someone needs to refuse to interview him by phone!

Latkes and Fish

Sound boring? Not this one! I made scallion matzoh meal latkes from a recipe by and paired them with sautéed flounder. I crusted the fish with potato pancake mix. The mix gave it a nice light crust and seasoned the fish just right. The pancakes pair well with sour cream or a soy sauce dipping sauce. The whole meal was Kosher for Passover.
