Recently I was provided with a set of OXO LockTop containers.
I was pretty excited. I’m a big fan of OXO kitchen gadgets and have various ones in my house like the apple divider, peeler, mango splitter, just to name a few. Basically when in doubt, I usually by OXO brand because I’ve been happy with the quality of their products.
What really intrigued me with these containers is that they are leak proof. I’ve tried dozens of different food storage containers: screw tops, airtight locking ones, etc. They always leak. Even a slight nanosecond tilt will lead to leakage. So I was eager to test these out.
And it works! They really are leak proof. I tested it out with some coffee. The little mini ones don’t hold much, but I used two to store my coffee for the day. I usually use a travel mug, but it always leaks if I walk to fast or if I’m juggling a bunch of stuff in my hands.
As I mentioned earlier, I’ve been on an avocado kick. I’ve made bacon egg avocado cups before and loved them. This time I thought of placing eggs directly into the avocado shell for another breakfast treat.
I liked how these looked. Warm avocado, egg, some salt and pepper for seasoning. You can scoop and eat it with a spoon.
The second stop on the Chula Vista food crawl was Pozoleria Dona Maria.
Thick crunchy tostada chips were served while we waited for our food. I love crunching on these.
Tostadas de Pata
Pink Candles at Ridgemont High wanted to try this, which is basically jellied cubes of chopped pork foot served on crunchy tostada chips. I think we all had mixed reactions, some liking it and some not. I’ve eaten pigs’ feet before, as it’s a common chinese dish but I’ve never been particularly fond of it, whereas my siblings love it. I thought I might prefer it more chopped up but felt the taste too strong. I only managed to eat about three cubes.
