These tacos might be my favorite new thing because they’re really a marriage of two of my favorite Mexican foods — tacos and quesadillas. I thought about calling them taco-dillas but griddled tacos seemed way more sophisticated especially when you think how that results in toasty tortillas, melty cheese, and all around goodness.

Apparently I’m emotionally attached to my grey scarf. I say apparently because this was totally unbeknownst to me until I couldn’t find it the other day. If you’ve ever been around me when the weather’s chilly, you’ve likely seen that scarf around my neck. I wear it so much that it makes an appearance in nearly every other photo of me during cold weather.
Well, I didn’t realize how much it meant to me until it went missing last week, which I guess is the reality of life. We don’t appreciate things until they’re gone. Lucky for me, I left the scarf in a sleepy cafe at one of the ferry stop towns on Puget Sound, so it was easy to retrieve. That might be a bit of an understatement, since I forced my younger brother to drive an hour out of the way just to pick it up.

Though I’ve never been to Taiwan, there’s one thing I know for sure: I’m a huge fan of night market-style fried chicken. It’s one of a variety of xiaochi (aka “finger foods) found in Taiwanese night markets and is more or less popcorn chicken seasoned with garlic, soy, and a good amount of Chinese Five-Spice powder. I first tried it on last month’s Six Taste Taiwanese Food Tour and it has quickly become a staple in my house, earning the nickname, A.F.C. (aka Asian Fried Chicken).
