The tacos that changed the world

So I titled this blog Good Doctrine and Good Food with the intention that I would occasionally have something to say about food or drink. Shortly after I finalized this name with the blogger system, I came to lament the fact that though I have a great passion for tasty eats, I don't have much to say about them besides 'mmmmmm'. But, after dinner last night, I realized that I can use this forum at the very least to compliment my wife's cooking -- in print!

Last night we had beer battered fish tacos. Fried anything is a rarity in our house. The food is never short on flavor, it just rarely takes a hot oil bath before landing on my plate. Jess is very health conscious with her cooking, which I appreciate greatly. But I digress. Back to the tacos. These tacos were amazing. Its the second time I've had the distinguished pleasure of eating them. The batter makes them crispy and keeps the fish hot. The coleslaw is fresh and has little tomatoes in it, and the white sauce is fantastic with just a little spice. I don't know what's in it, but its great.

The first time I had these tacos I was amazed at how amazing they were. According to Jess, I gave them the highest compliment I've ever bestowed upon any dish she's prepared. I said "These tacos just made sweet love to my taste buds!" And they truly had. I needed a nap after dinner.

So was the experience equally staggering the second time around? Or was the first time with these tacos an experience that can never be repeated. I have to say, the second time was just as good. So good in fact that there were no leftovers.

It seems that combining good things results in amazing things. Beer-good. Fish-good. Fried-good. Taco-good. Add it all up and you've got a combination that could change the world!

wow, what an honor... a whole post dedicated to my dinner! I feel so special! I'm so glad that I can prepare a dish that "makes love to your taste buds". You make me laugh :)

By the way, the white sauce is made from plain yogurt, mayonnaise, lime juice, cumin, oregano, dill weed, cayenne pepper and chopped up jalepeno.

Wow, Matt. I didn't know you enjoyed your food QUITE that much! I don't think I'll be able to eat tacos anymore without blushing. j/k

Good doctrine and good eats. That's about it.

"Taste and See that the Lord is good," my friend. For he truly is!
