I am officially home for the rest of the summer, all two weeks of it and can decompress. Not even 24 hours after being home my friend and I hit up the local mall (as local as a 45 minute drive to the mall can be…) The drive gave us ample time to catch up and prepare ourselves for the delicious fro-yo we we would soon be consuming. We ended up getting the same two flavors, vanilla and cheesecake, mine was topped with sprinkles (of course) and strawberries.
We hit up Dick’s Sporting Good’s for sale items, I scored Nike spandex at a great price! Other notable stores include, Sephora, Victoria’s Secret, H&M, Willams and Sonoma (if we only we could afford anything there.) Macy’s and Nordstrom’s. I had no intentions of buying anything other than one or two pairs of shoes, but somewhere between VS and H&M I’d forgotten about my intentions and bought “necessities”… a cute creame zip-up, a lounge sweater with trendy elbow pads, nail polish…whoops!
Before we went on my shoe hunt we needed to refuel. The fro-yo sent our blood sugar on a downward spiral, Jamba Juice was in order. A 160z Strawberry Nirvana with immunity, please. JAMBA! Phew! Both of us feeling alive once again we trekked onward, Nordstrom as our Holy Grail.
One of the fastest shoe shopping experiences I’ve had, we were in and out of the store at 20 minutes flat WITH not one, but TWO pairs of shoes at a decent price. This is is what I deem a triumphant success. Check these kicks!
Yup, and those hot pink babes are Classic Nikes, did I ever mention I love pink? (Behind the shoes are my movie snacks I plan to smuggle in this afternoon. I’m off to see The Help!)
Now, I’m going to confuse all y’all and show you this crazy box of doughnuts from last Thursday. After a dinner out to sushi in Eugene with 6 other people we wanted to show our friend from out of town the lovely Voodoo Doughnuts. We walk inside the establishment and see three HUGE boxes full of doughnuts, “Here, take a box! Only $2.00 for the lot!” Ummm, excuse me?? Apparently no one has ever questioned this offer before and with the quick exchange we headed back to an apartment and set up a doughnut sampler plate. We counted 31 doughnuts. (!!!!!) Between the seven of us we still weren’t able to make a dent.
Today’s recipe is merely more a method, but I ate this Apple Cheddar Quesadilla last week and didn’t want to hold out on you any longer. Without further ado..
Apple Cheddar Quesadilla Method: for two
2 Tortilla (I used a FlatOut)
~1 C cheese ( We used Sharp cheddar and mozz)
3/4 of a medium apple thinly sliced
1. Heat frying pan at a medium-high temperature.
2. Spray pan to keep tortilla from sticking. (Alternatively, grease each side of the tortilla for a crunchier ‘dilla.)
3. On one side of tortilla sprinkle preferred amount of cheese and layer apples.
3 1/2 (As an after thought we thought of adding Laughing Cow spread for even more of a flavor boost, if you try this let me know!)
4. Fold tortilla in half and set in hot pan.
5. Allow to cook 2-4 minutes on each side or until cheese is sufficiently melty.
This lunch is the epitome of quick and easy, aside from chopping the apple, almost zero labor is involved and the ingredients are commonly found in all kitchens. You can throw this together in under 15 minutes and believe me, we did, I was STARVED for lunch by the time we ate. Someone was late…
Do you normally dip your quesadilla in any side sauce?
What is your favorite brand of shoe, running or casual?
