Which Mexican street food is the greatest?

There are many kinds of Mexican street foods. But, in my outlook, the best street foods are always ones which contain either meat or cheese because I love the two ingredients more than vegetables; even though I strive to always include vegetables in the foods I eat daily, I am not as big a fan of eating vegetables as either meat or cheese. My picks of the best Mexican street foods:

  1. Fajita: fajitas are basically tortilla wraps with fillings, such as meat, cheese or vegetables.
  2. Burrito: burritos are tortilla wraps, as well, with fillings, such as meat, beans or cheese.
  3. Tacos: tacos are tortilla wraps with fillings, such as meat, cheese or vegetables, and at times a hot sauce.
  4. Nachos: nachos are basically tortilla chips that are smothered with cheese.
  5. Quesadillas: quesadillas are warmed up tortillas with fillings of cheese.

Glow

Glow is a web television series. It is a comedy and a fictionalized portrayal of a successful professional wrestling promotion which used to air during the eighties; the promotion was called ‘Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling’ and it had only female performers. What makes Glow interesting is that the professional wrestling promotion is portrayed to have begun simply as an amateur production which was managed by a ruined film director but then it found great success; also, quite interesting about the television series are the lives that these women which are part of the promotion lead (expect appearance of an ex-friend, finding of infidelity, plus more) and the pretty costumes which they wear.

How to make carrot fritters to eat as snacks

Carrot fritters are great as vegetarian snacks and also really simple to make. What you will need to make them are the following: four carrots, two red chilies, two eggs, two tsp. lemon juice, three tsp. flour, cooking oil and salt to taste.

To prepare the fritters, at first, chop the red chilies. The take a food processor and place the carrots in it to chop the carrots into thin slices. Following that, take a big bowl and throw into it the carrots, chilies, flour, lemon juice and salt. Then, mix the ingredients together well and make flat circles out of the mix by using your hands – the circles should not look like they will fall apart in the next step.

Add cooking oil to a frying pan and drop the circles into the oil. Fry them on both sides until they have fried well. Serve the carrot fritters hot.

The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark

The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark is a children’s book about a barn owl called Plop, who is very different. Although, owls are largely nocturnal creatures, Plop is a barn owl that is afraid of night-time. Plop considers night-time to be awful but when Mrs. Barn Owl dispatches him to inquire about that part of the day, Plop manages to change his mind about it. Plop does this with the aid of various living beings he stumbles upon, from a cat to a scout. The tale is marvelously heartwarming and it celebrates the idea of being different and the fact that it can be considered as something novel, as well as inspiring with the thought that it can be possible to overcome a big fear.
