My fiancé’s grandmother comes to visit us almost on an annual basis, just after Thanksgiving. It's always hard when it comes to feeding her because she's, well… very old school in her eating habits. She doesn't like to veer too much from the center of Mexican food when she eats. So because she happens to come right after Thanksgiving, it's tough because there are a bunch of leftovers and of course we like to indulge in them for at least a week after. Typically, she wants nothing to do with those leftovers.
This year, though, I had a plan. I made tostadas in the customary fashion that I always do but this time with turkey leftovers. I made myself busy when she sat down to eat them so she wouldn't be able to ask questions. Curiosity got the best of me and I went inside after a few bites. Guess what? She didn't mention the turkey taste at all! She just gobbled (no pun intended) them down with no problem. When she was done, she said that those were some of the best “chicken” tostadas she had ever had. He-he!
