My oldest son turned eight today. I can actually remember turning eight so the fact that I produced a human (with some help) that is that old is a weird feeling to me. That probably means from now on out he’ll remember everything too so my parenthooding mulligans are over. I’ve gotta be perfect from here on out.
We usually have a birthday party with friends and then a family party with just us. For the family party the birthday kid gets to pick their favorite meal for me to fix followed by cake and a sugar fueled rendition of a spank line sound-tracked by Sugar Hill Gang’s “Jump on It“. If you don’t know what a spank line is it’s where the whole family makes a tunnel with their legs while the birthday kid crawls through being zealously spanked by the whole family. I’m sure it’s illegal in some states but it’s tradition for us.
So that was my night. What did you do?
I finally subscribed to Cook’s Country magazine. I love that they explain their testing and experiments for each recipe. It really appeals to the nerd in me and consequently I want to make everything because hello, it’s been thoroughly tested. How could it not be good?
This is a quiche/quesadilla which means you can eat it for breakfast or dinner. We chose dinner and we all loved it. The flavors are simple but tasty. The original recipe calls for jarred jalapenos but I knew no one in my family would go for that so I left them out.
