I have a confession to make. We’ve taught our daughter to say “cray cray.” As in, crazy? Cray cray? Yeah, we say that around here. It started out as ironic-only use and then it sort of creeped its way into our everyday lexicon.
I hope we aren’t as annoying and uncool as I just made us sound.
I know I tend to talk a lot about babies and sleep, but seriously, man! Babies and sleep! I swear, every other day our darling daughter pulls another trick out of her hat that’s single-handedly designed to give us an entirely new level of appreciation for the book “Go the F— to Sleep.” That book, by the way, was of our more hilarious shower gifts. It was given to us by some sweetly smiling, knowing parents who surely knew exactly what we were in for and who quietly chuckled at our glowing pre-baby naivete.

Tostadas, a Mexican dish that consists of a crisp corn tortillas layered with refried beans and all kinds of other good things, lend themselves well to a variety of palates. Diners can assemble their own, adding what they want, leaving off what they don’t.
So, naturally, they’re perfect for the mixed veggie/carnie house. In this version, the meat-eater gets a healthy dose of spicy, tender shredded chicken slow-cooked in beer; the vegetarian still gets plenty to eat, including delicious, smoky homemade refried black beans. Win all around.
