I’m tired of the cold, of the snow, of having to wear sweaters and scarves. We’ve gotten brief hints of warmer times, but they’ve been all too fleeting. A day here, a day there. And then the temperatures drop and it’s back to frigid weather.
The only way I can get through these last days of winter is by making foods that remind me of summer. A bowl of coleslaw, a packed lobster roll, a plate of pickled beet salad. These are the foods that are keeping me in good spirits.
Given this need for rejuvenating (soul saving) dishes, I was thrilled to see that a recipe for fish tacos was submitted for the Marx Food Ridiculously Delicious Challenge. You see, for the next round (yup, I made it to round 3), we have been asked to makeover one of our fellow contestants’ dishes and give it our own little spin. It’s a fantastic, creative concept… one that I think brings the food blogger community together in a very supportive way.
When I went down the list of submissions, the first one that jumped out at me was this fish taco recipe from Azmina at Lawyer Loves Lunch. Nothing makes me think of sun bathing and relaxation more than a plate of tacos and a beer.
