Easter Brunch 2018: 3ten.ca

It’s Easter tomorrow and that means it’s time for Easter brunch 2018. Last year we also celebrated with a brunch and I even used the same placemats. They’ve become a small tradition. I love when we start our own little family traditions, it’s so fun. Okay, let’s get started on what we’ve got here.

The Recipes

Mexican Shakshouka
Avocado Corn Salsa
Homemade Tortilla Chips

First, set your table nicely. I like to do this early, before the guests arrive. That way it’s nice and pretty and I get to enjoy it for a bit, too.

We’ve got only two settings since it’s just us.

Fill your plate and enjoy the time with family.

For me, spending time with family is the best part of a holiday or celebration. Connecting, learning what’s new in each other’s lives, and knowing the love you share is stronger than you ever knew possible. Why? Because, well, you’re family. The older I get the more I start to understand the word family is flexible to include friends and dear loved ones, but what becomes more difficult is trying to explain why family is so important. It just is.

Happy Easter and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Recipe: Tortilla Chips

Tortilla Chips: 3ten.ca

Homemade tortilla chips. You might ask what’s the point, I can buy some pretty tasty chips. You’re right, but have you ever eaten at a Mexican restaurant and just loved those warm and salty tortilla chips? The ones you want more of, yet know you need to stop eating otherwise you won’t have room for your meal? Well, those chips are here. Right in front of you face and they’re super easy to make. Let’s get started.

Ingredients

  • 20 corn tortillas
  • 2 tablespoons of grapeseed oil
  • 1 teaspoon of kosher salt

First, get fresh authentic corn tortillas. We buy ours off Argyle road in Edmonton. Then, set your oven to 375 degrees.

Next, get out a cutting board and a brush. You’ll need a small container to put your grapeseed oil in.

Brush one tortilla with oil and then top with the next. Brush, top, brush again and keep repeating until you’ve got 10 done.

Cut into 4 (or if you’re using bigger tortillas, cut into 6). Brush your pan with some grapeseed oil, you don’t want the tortillas to stick. Scatter the chips around.

Tortilla Chips: 3ten.ca

Cook for 7-9 minutes until nice and golden. Right out of the oven sprinkle with kosher salt.

Toss in a bowl and eat.

Or store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. Fresh is best, though. If you’re making these for company, make them just before you’re ready to eat. They’re best served right out of the oven.

Recipe: Avocado Corn Salsa

March 27, 2018 |  by  |  Eats, Recipes  |  No Comments

Avocado Corn Salsa: 3ten.ca

This avocado corn salsa is quite similar to my corn salsa. It’s fresh and easy.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups of corn, about 1 can
  • 2 avocados
  • 1 red onion – about 1/3 cup
  • 3 tablespoons of lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon of sriracha sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of cilantro

One tip I think is great, dice the onions and then top with the lime juice and sriracha, this loosens up the onions and cuts the bitterness raw red onion can bring. Do this especially if you’re going to eat the salsa right away.

Mix in the rest of the ingredients and you’re good to go.
