Snow Day Breakfast Quesadilla

Snow Day!!! On our glorious day off last Thursday, Joey and I came up with this amazing recipe…

For enough food for two people, and a few leftover bits for a dog, you will need:
-4 eggs
-some onion
-some green pepper
-6-10 bacon strips
-lots o’ spinach
-1 1/2 – 2 cups grated cheese (we used mozzarella, colby jack, and pepper jack combined!)
-cilantro
-cream cheese
-2 large tortillas
-cayenne pepper
-hot chili powder
-side salsa (optional but recommended)

This is how you make it:
1. Cook bacon on the stove top
2. Cook scrambled eggs with chopped onions, peppers, spinach, and chopped bacon
3. Spread cream cheese on one tortilla and toss the cilantro on that
4. Melt butter in pan, place plain tortilla upon the melted butter, put egg mixture on tortilla, then all the grated cheese on top of that
5. Put the cream cheese/cilantro tortilla on top
6. Let tortilla become golden brown (not poop brown, please) and the cheese melty melty gooey, then flip and let the other side become golden brown
7. Put it in your mouth, take a bite, chew, and freak out about how yummy that tastes. Serve with salsa if you wish (it stands on its own quite well, but damn it is so good with salsa!)

YOU ARE WELCOME, WORLD!

February Festivities

For some reason, the Februaries of my life have not been terribly grand. In fact, they always seem to be dull, or uncomfortable, or just crappy and I always want the short month to go by faster. This year I decided to not let that happen again and that I would take February in a new direction. So far, it has been so great! I have done exciting and fun activities each weekend, all including spending quality time with my great friends, and many including dancing my ass off. This past Friday I had a “Free Love Valentine Soirée” at my tiny apartment. It featured many red hearts, many bottles of wine, food, dancing, dogs, and so many great friends! Here are some pictures taken by my good friend Trisha:

I do believe these pictures were taken toward the beginning of the night. As the night continued on more people arrived and we got loud and rowdy! I kicked everyone out around 12:30 and we all parted ways to our respective post-party locations. I love these people! I also love wine and cheese and olives and cookies and dogs, too.

Happy February!
