More Blogstalking Stuff!

Blogstalking Food Photoshoot So, this week is all about food. Take pics of something you made this week. Here, we have my Chicken Quesodillas. This is the first time I made them here on this stove, and as a result, we see why I really shouldn't be cooking anything that doesn't come out of a box with explicit directions on the back. I burned the hell out of these quesodillas. If I were in a restaurant, I'da sent them back. Ingredients : Tortillas Mexican 4-cheese blend Salsa Sour Cream Black Olives Black Beans Chicken And usually, shredded lettuce. But I didn't have any. Anyway, I cooked the chicken in the microwave (because I'm so efficient - heh) and Black Beans!heated up the black beans on the stove. When both were finished, in the top right photo, I put the cheese on the tortilla, the chopped up chicken and then some black beans. Then I proceded to put that in a pan with some oil that was entirely too hot and proceded to burn the tortilla in an impressively short period of time. We're talkin' microseconds here. It was awful. I blame it on the new stove and new cookware. Yeah, that's it. Blame the inanimate objects. When it was retrieved from the pan, I opened it up (bottom left) and coated it with some salsa, sour cream and black olives. Then, after trying to cool the pan down a bit and dumping the too hot oil. I made another one. And burned it as well. I suck at food.

Well, I like mine kinda burnt--no kidding. Also, I just gave my friend Annika your blog address. She loves to knit, too. I don't know anything about knitting but I like how excited you get about great yarn. And I like to think about someone spinning that handspun stuff. Very cool.

Quesadillas are hard. But you need to have your pan kind of low, with only a little oil, in a nonstick pan. And don't overfill. It just takes practice.

Did you eat them anyway? I would have, they don't look "too" burnt. :) The trick with quesadillas is a very low heat for longer than you think you'd leave them one.

But I betcha they were still tasty, weren't they? Willow loves quesadillas as well - she calls them Mexican Grilled Cheese.

You know what makes the best quesadillas? Those stupid George Foreman grills. That and grilled cheese sandwiches is all I use mine for!

Good lord though that looks delicious. I'm going to have to add those to my cooking repetoire!
