Tonight was technically left over night, woo-hoo!! But since the leftovers that were available was tortilla soup, I got inspired and whipped up a little something “extra” to have with it. I don’t know if y’all remember that some time back…. like a LONG time ago, when I was a young whipper snapper in college, Taco Bell had these cool cinnamon sugar crunchy things that you could buy. I didn’t get them often, but I enjoyed the crispy sweetness from time to time. I don’t think they have them any more??? I haven’t been at Taco Bell for quite some time, though the other day I had a HUGE Taco Bell craving! That was strange!
Anyway, I was trying to go for something like those crisps so here’s what I did. While the soup was on the stove reheating I grabbed some flour tortillas from the fridge and quickly sprayed each one with some veggie cooking spray. I was going to actually butter them, but I was in a hurry. Then I sprinkled them well with cinnamon and sugar. Got out my handy-dandy pizza cutter and sliced them into wedges before putting them on a baking sheet. I then left them in the oven at about 350ish for a few minutes while I dished up the soup and fixed chocolate milk for the lads.
I have to say that I was pleased with the result!! they were crispy without being TOO crispy and were very good! The perfect end to a spicyish mexicanish dish! Yum!! 🙂
I won’t bore you with a recitation of the other parts of my day. Qade had a rough one, and though I felt “lost” a couple of times, I don’t think I actually lost it like I did on Monday, so that’s progress!! 🙂 Tomorrow is a new day and a Friday to boot, so this is good!!!!! I have planned for Stu to grill tomorrow, so that’ll be almost like 2 days off in a row for me. Hee hee!! Though even when we do have leftovers I still “fix” them for the fam. Can’t help myself somehow!
Now the boys are splashing away the last of their cinnamon sugar in a lavendery bath while Stu watches from the safe side of the curtain. 😉 They aren’t allowed to ‘splash’ unless the curtain is closed and most of the time they do really well with that. I will admit that I’m looking forward to getting them in bed, and just putting my feet up for a little relaxification this evening. I even contemplated making some decaf and REALLY enjoying it, but I think I’m too lazy!
I was perusing the Pioneer Woman‘s recipes today! Ugh!! She always takes such yummy looking pictures to go along with her recipes that I got off the computer totally craving vanilla bean scones and fried round steak!!! Ha ha ha!! Not to mention the smashed potatoes! Wow! So now I have some dinner ideas for next week depending on what meat is on sale, but believe me I will be trying those scones as soon as I can get my grubby hands on some actual vanilla beans!! 😉
Happy Friday friends! Hope that it ends up being a fantastic, fabulous, fun, fun, fun finale to your week!
