Hot Fingers

I made migas last night. I love breakfast for dinner and I especially love Mexican breakfast, pretty much anytime I can get it. So migas is a big favorite at our house--crispy fried tortilla pieces cooked with eggs, cheese, tomatoes, peppers, onions, bacon, and a little bit of cumin. Yum! I made fresh pico de gallo salsa and guacamole to go with it, and Nick made ginger margaritas from a recipe we got off, which claims to be the cocktail served at Jean-Georges Vongerichten's restaurants. Nick used to order that cocktail all the time, and he says this homemade version tastes pretty close. I couldn't tell you if it's just the same, but whatever it is, it's damn good. It involves a ginger-lime syrup you have to make ahead, but it's super simple and makes a ton.

Anyway, I didn't notice so much last night (see above re: ginger margaritas) but this morning I notice I must not have washed my hands carefully enough after seeding and chopping those jalapenos! My right forefinger and thumb are burning and no matter how many times I wash them now, it's too late. Putting in my contacts this morning was a rocking good time. Maybe paying bills will distract me! Joy.



If you adopt me, I will chop all your peppers for you.


take a benadryl and see if that helps with the reaction...

We made ginger cosmopolitans one night that were fantastic. I might have to try that Marg recipe sometime. Soon.

Mel, I just added a link to the recipe in the original post, in case you want to try it. Soooo good!

Kristen, I'm afraid if I adopt you my husband will pull a Woody Allen.

Oh no, oh no!!! I second Mel's recommendation of a benadryl, or maybe some cortisone cream?

Migas is totally the Mexican version of matzoh brei, and I love them both. Yum, eggs.

For the record, Benadryl cream worked smashingly. Thanks for the suggestions!
