Who Doesn’t Love A Good Quesadilla

enhanced-5539-1394222625-1

I love quesadillas.  I love them for breakfast, lunch & dinner.  They really are, “the perfect food.”  They’re easy to make, compact for a quick on the go meal and you can literally fill them with ANYTHING you want.  Meat, cheese, veggies, tofu or eggs. The possibilities are endless.

Wikipedia describes a quesadilla as “a flour tortilla or a corn tortilla filled with a savory mixture containing cheese and other ingredients including vegetables, (often) then folded in half to form a half-moon shape. The dish originated in Mexico, and the name is derived from tortilla and the Spanish word for cheese queso.

This formal definition does not convey the excitement that a REALLY GOOD quesadilla can convey or how the evolution of this once traditional dish has managed transform into one of the best non-traditional dishes ever.  Customize it any way you want.  Savory or sweet.   Here are some of our favorite combinations!

What To Eat The Day After, Happy St. Patricks Day!

cd11acc6ff8acc00e2eb7ee6a4970133“There are many good reasons for drinking, 
One has just entered my head. 
If a man doesn’t drink when he’s living, 
How in the hell can he drink when he’s dead?”
-Irish quote, author unknown

Who really looks forward to Mondays? Well, next week we have an excuse to because it’s St. Patrick’s Day.  The official drinking holiday of all Americans, Irish or not. Have a “sip” of green beer here, an Irish car bomb there because, what else, it’s St. Patrick’s Day! Regardless of whether you are 100 percent Irish or .01 percent, what began as a religious feast day for the patron saint of Ireland has become an international festival celebrating everything Irish and green.   So Here’s to a long life and a merry one, A quick death and an easy one, 
A pretty girl and an honest one, 
A cold beer – and another one!  CHEERS!

“Our Ideal, the day after eats.”
