Snowy, lazy Saturday...and I want nachos. I've actually wanted nachos for about a week but I've been really good lately about eating right. And nachos aren't what one would call healthy.
So I'm feeling snacky and I decide that nachos at home are better for you than ordering nachos at a restaurant, especially in the portion control dept. I comb the fridge, picking out stuff on hand and start throwing away expired stuff as well.
Nachos. I used up a quarter bag of Tostitos Scoops and tossed out a bag of tostitos fragments. Added minced shallot (from the fridge) and some pickled pepperoncini slices. A palmful of shredded cheddar and it's off to the toaster oven. Afterwards, a couple spoonfuls of jarred mild salsa, topped with chunks of avocado. Delicious and just the right amount to satisfy the craving.
And on the way I threw out the following: a jar half-full of spicy chili paste. Two-year-old maple barbecue sauce. Kalamata olives. Homemade pickled jalapeño and onion. The oldest condiment was a jar of capers, and I have no idea how old they were. And oops... the olives expired sometime in 2018. Guess I should wear my glasses when I'm cleaning out the fridge!
