30 Days of Thankful 2013 Edition- Day 18

Day 18

Today I am thankful for special quesadillas, although I really shouldn't be. Anywhere else other than here in the Imperial Valley a special quesadilla is one that has meat inside it. Tortilla, cheese, meat. "Special". Here, we do special in a different way... we deep fry it. So, we made a raw dough, jam it with cheese, fold it up more or less empanada style, and fry the sh*t outta that mother. The result is decadence. I grew up eating these things and every time I have one, I'm transported back to childhood (also a time when I wasn't allergic to beans- sadfacetear) and when I was happy and carefree. Now, eating one of those fatty things will either upset my IBS or go straight to my thighs or whatever. WORTH IT!!! So, so worth it. Imperial Valley special quesadilla is definitely an element of my "last meal"... you know, should I ever get the chair (firing squad is my preference, though.)

    lol, I've actually been reading about the kinds of fats that we use to fry out tasty foods, and although high in fat, it's high in the good fats. So not TOO sinful, lol. Looks super tasty!

    For me, it's a grilled cheese sandwich -- the worst white bread, slathered with butter, and the brightest yellow/orange American cheese. Plus potato chips. My face feels greasy just thinking about it.

    YUM !! It's okay to be grateful for a special quesadilla once in a while.

    moderation, not deprivation.

    Oh those do look good! I was a quesadilla kid too, although ours weren't as fancy as yours. emoticon My parents used to take my brother and me to a little Mexican restaurant downtown (back when there were only two kids) and I always ordered a quesadilla. They were so yummy!
