Been loosely following this thread recently and the topics of lard, tacos, and flour tortilla's caught my interest. One of my go-to websites for Mexican recipes touches on all three -- https://www.mexicanplease.com

For the past year or so, I've been using his recipes for home made tortillas -- both corn and flour -- as well as for other things like salsa and mayocoba beans.

Store bought tortillas, especially flour, have lost all their appeal. I'm down to my last quart of lard and need to hit the local slaughter house for another sheet of fatback soon.

Tonight's meal will probably make you wonder...

I was cleaning out the pantry, refrigerator, and main freezer and noticed that we have hot dogs that need to be used, some smoked sausage, and extra pork N beans... So I cooked beany weinies and separately - mac and cheese with smoked sausage. It made my DIL and grandchildren happy. It was food.

If you can find 'Fiesta' brand chicken rub at the grocery store - it adds flavor, can be used as a rub as it's named, used in a marinade, used sprinkled on chicken that's cooked. Sounds like an advert - but it's good.

I had my rendition of the KFC famous bowl.
But with real mashed potatoes real gravy and corn plus my cracklings from making lard with pork meat too.

Never had it but see it all the time.

Put in 12 hours today and just got home defrosting my beef stew I froze some time ago.

It is past my bed time too.

Added some home grown okra to the beef vegetable stew to make it stretch for tonight's supper.
Plus chili powder.

Jan put a package of pork in the cart today. It was real cheap $3 for 3 pounds. I asked her what it was? She said, "It's Pork Something". Alright - I get to cook pork something into an I don't know dish. Finally a grocery store that sells "I don't know"... which happens to be the most used answer when I ask what or where others want to eat.

If nothing else, I could grind it. The package says Mixed Pork, and it looks to be very lean.

sounds like carnitas to me.
Not the dish but the direct translation, little meats.

The homemade pesto was so good everyone liked it, 'all 7 of my personalities.
So I picked up some sweet Italian sausage on sale, (25% off) and going to have it again tonight for supper, with pesto and spaghetti.
