it’s friday gang! are you ready for fridays with oscar? we sure are. this week we are making a delicious recipe adapted from Bon Appetit’s February Healthyish issue—chickpea and chorizo tostadas, except i have modified their version to be tacos instead of tostadas. and what goes better with tacos than a classic margarita? i have jazzed up Bon Appetit’s classic margarita with a Tajin spice-rimmed glass. healthy eats and tasty treats. it’s the way to go.
it’s been a fun few weeks on the blog this January, i have really enjoyed sharing my home tours with you and this week was no exception. for me, January is synonymous with new beginnings and fresh starts. for 2020, that has translated to refreshing my closet, putting the last touches on my home design and starting a new cycle of FASTer Way to Fat Loss.
as usual, i am all about casual Friday, here on fridays with oscar. today’s outfit is brightened up with a pullover hoodie. i have popped it over a printed button down for a little added polish. my J. Crew herringbone-print jeans are making a return appearance today. and to tie in the bright pop of orange, i have on my driving mocs with orange detail.
this recipe is easily customizable to your taste. it’s so simple and really takes no time at all. make the yogurt sauce a day ahead if you like. i used the full can of chickpeas instead of the half cup the recipe calls for.
as it was cooking, i added a drizzle of olive oil to help crisp up the chickpeas. after making the yogurt sauce for this recipe, i will never throw away the cilantro stems again—they really do add a nice flavor and crunch to the sauce.
i don’t miss the syrupy sweetness of triple sec one bit. but, if you feel like you’re missing the citrus flavor from the triple sec, add a little fresh squeezed orange juice.
to add a little oomph to this cocktail, i rimmed the glass with kosher salt mixed with Tajin (a mexican spice you can find at any grocery store), it’s tangy and spicy. you can substitute lime chili powder, if you like.
alright gang! we’ve had a great week on the blog. over the last few weeks we have toured my custom closet, my home office, and my living room. stay tuned to the blog next week as we continue our look at fashion basics. and get ready for february on the blog – we have a lot in store and it’s going to be an exciting month! until next time, oscar, ollie and i wish you all a wonderful weekend.
