*This is actually a draft that I meant to publish on October 14, 2011.
So the last couple of weeks have been pretty hectic. I’ve been working on some things here and there and haven’t really had a lot of time to post. Plus, with so much schoolwork, I’m lucky to be able to write now. I got my first real migraine in three years yesterday, and it was a horrific experience. My poor boyfriend had to take care of me. I don’t like it when people see me like that, and I could tell he really felt helpless. My mother, who is usually the one who looks out for me when I have one, is out of town. He stayed with me and watched me to make sure I was okay. He’s the best.
I’ve been working on a few projects, including a blanket for him. It’s sort of like a granny square but it’s more like a rectangle, as it needs to be super long to suit him. He’s very, very tall. I’ll probably have to end up working on it until it reaches 7 feet by 6.5 feet. Crazy! I’ve never made a blanket that big, but I’m sure he’ll like having a blanket that’s actually big enough for him for once. Once it starts looking like it’s supposed to I’ll post a few photos. I love the colors, it looks like a beach on a stormy day.
But anywho, since my mom’s out of town and he’s been staying here, I’ve been getting up bright and early (5am… geesh) to make him breakfast before he heads to work. I saw this post on breakfast quesadillas on recipegirl.com last week and I knew it was something I wanted to try out. Honestly, it’s a genius idea- I almost always have these ingredients on hand! There’s even a video tutorial… Not that this is a difficult thing to do. I wouldn’t even call it a recipe, really.
I used a 7 inch nonstick skillet and two eggs, and fajita size small tortillas fit perfectly! Sometimes the tortillas vary in size, and the first quesadilla I made actually lined up perfectly.
Also, I added some Jimmy Dean pre cooked sausage crumbles… awesome idea for adding a little meat to it! I added them in the step where you sprinkle the cheese, but only on one side. The cheese adheres the tortilla, egg, and sausage together to make something magical. Genius idea, and you can take it to go when you drive to work or school. I cut it with a pizza cutter, and it looked great (in my opinion)! Even a small one is very filling, so make sure you’re either a.) really hungry or b.) someone is there to share it with you!
