Simply Filling Taco-Dilla!

by DanicasDaily on July 25, 2012

Happy Wednesday all!  This morning I totally gave myself permission to take the day off of exercise and sleep in.  Now, if only my body would’ve listened.  I was still wide awake at my normal workout time so I decided to enjoy my morning hanging out with The Husband.

I whipped up Simply Filling Egg Wiches for us ~ LOVE. (SF) – 6 points+

I was pretty excited last night when we had enough Farmer’s Market Pasta leftover for lunch today.  I am not sure what it is about corn, but, have you ever noticed it tastes good with just about everything.  I may love it more in Italian Food than I do in Mexican food.

Just as delicious the next day.  (SF) – 5 points+

Lunch ~ Part 2 ~ Sargento Lite String Cheese & a super sweet nectarine (SF) – 1 points+

As I drove home this afternoon, I was pondering what I would do when I walked in the door since I knew The Husband had to work late.  Part of me completely wanted to just sit on the couch and bond with Food Network, part of me wanted to raid the kitchen and the other part of me wanted to check my last run for this week off my list.

Even though I told myself this morning to take the day off, I found myself really wanting to get out for a jog/walk to let my stress go. 

I actually wasn’t sure if I was going to need a snack or not in the afternoon, but, decided to go with a perfectly hard boiled egg so I was not starving after my run. (SF) – 2 points+

It always amazes me how getting in a little exercise helps put everything in perspective.  Then again, so does making Carne Asada Quesadilla Tacos!

Since we are heading out to camp this weekend, I didn’t want to open up an entire block of cheese to grate a little for our tacos.  Instead, I let Sargento 2% Colby slices melt over the top.

You all seriously have to try this ~ it totally makes the cheesiness stand out and turns your taco into a taco quesadilla or maybe a Taco-Dilla!

Topped with crunch, sweet garden cherry tomatoes, jalapenos and 0% Greek Yogurt for sour cream.  I had two Carne Asada Taco Quesadillas (SF+2 WPA) – 8 points+ for both.

I am thinking I need a snack and some Simply Filling Ice Cream just might do the trick….Now if I only had marshmallow fluff, graham crackers and chocolate syrup to satisfy the S’Mores craving!

Would it be bad to say I am counting down the days until I can actually have a S’Mores camping??

Q’s

If you were going camping, what must haves would you take with you?

We are getting ready to pack up for our Camping Trip with my family this weekend. I am soooo excited (BTW!)  I want to make sure I do not miss anything.

Night all!

I look at practicallity on camping trips. We pick up large quantities of bagged ice on the way for the extra cooler.

What are my camping must haves? Good food in the form of eggs, bacon, steaks, fish (preferably de-boned but whole), ghee or olive oil, elbow macaroni, a variety of dried herbs, hot sauce, water purification tablets (bad experience without them), milk and possibly cream, instant coffee and tea, pre-chopped veggies of all kinds packed in pre-portioned baggies, lots of bottled drinks and a few bottles of red wine.

On the other side of must haves if not camping in a cabin (which is not camping in my eye): thick sleeping mat, waterproof ground sheets, tent, a shovel (try digging a camp latrine without one), folding chairs and table, cutting boards of various sizes (bad memories or trying to prepare food without a cutting board), knives or various sizes (enter Crocodile Dundee), pots and pans (preferably those that can stack into each other for small space storage), my Kindle loaded with a few dozen books, industrial size bug repellant, and my iPod / Android phone.

A would-like-to-have on these trips is a small generator or solar generator to charge whatever electronics we bring with us.

Danica, How did you prepare the tortillas for the Taco Dilla?

3 Rhonda July 26, 2012 at 6:58 am

When camping i find keeping it simple is the way to go.
Lantern, sleeping bag, extra toliet paper, coffee pot, grate to put over the fire pit for cooking, food of course. Dish soap and a dish pan and some wet ones. Don’t forget your bug spray and citronella candles. If you forget something chances are someone in your group has it. Have a great time!

Those tacos look simply divine!!!!

It’s been a while since we’ve been camping, but along with s’mores, some beer, and a deck of cards, definitely a MOUNTAIN PIE MAKER and fixings! Now I’m from PA so I’ll try to explain what a mountain pie is for those of you that don’t know.
A mountain pie maker is 2 long handles attached to two squares that close together to place in the fire.
You put a piece of bread (buttered) on one square, put your desired fillings on top and top it with another piece of butter bread. Then close the mountain pie maker and place over the open fire until your pie is golden brown and the edges are sealed.
The fillings can be anything from apple pie or cherry pie filling….to cheese, or pizza sauce and cheese….to chocolate pudding and marshmallows!! The possibilities are endless. My sister and I always try to come up with new combinations. Last time we made a sliced fresh tomato, basil and cheese mountain pie! Yummy….
Just wondering if any of you have heard of this before? And is so what’s your favorite kind?

I love camping, and smores. Many many years ago, I was camping with a now ex boyfriend, and he made smores with two chocolate chip cookies, dark chocolate and the toasted marshmallow. Though memories of him are now very fleeting, I will NEVER forget those smores!!! Have a good day Danica.

Oh yes – I do love those pies! We would make breakfast sandwiches in them and cook them while enjoying a hot cup of coffee.
I love camping.

We love camping and do many trips every summer! We just got back from Lake Berryessa. Our favorite thing is to make is banana smore’s. Peel them open and put the chocolate and marshmallows inside the banana jacket then wrap the whole thing in foil. Drop in the campfire until the banana is soft. Scoop out with a graham cracker. YUM! We also love to take LCR dice game to play. Good fun for the whole family.

Yes we love LCR too!!

HI Nancy,

I preheated a nonstick pan over medium heat. Sprayed it with a little nonstick spray. Place the corn tortilla on it and cooked it for 30 seconds on one side, flipped it, topped it with cheese and cooked it for another 30 seconds until the cheese was melted.
