Happy Tuesday all! This morning definitely came too early. Up until a few week’s ago, The Husband and I were totally addicted to watching Bear Grills “Get Out Alive” followed up by Siberia. Now, Monday nights we stay up late just to watch Siberia. We will say oh, let’s just watch it on demand, but, end up hooked after about 2 minutes into it.
It is days like this that totally call for Americano’s or Lattes! Luckily my first meeting of the day started at Ritual Coffee. Hands down, they have some of the best coffee I’ve ever tasted.
Iced Nonfat Latte (3 points+)
Of course, I had a Healthy Egg Roll before heading out the door (4 points+)
Lucky for me ~ meeting #2 was at another one of my favorite places ~ Grace’s Table.
They have the best onion rings you will ever have in your life. The onions are super sweet with this light, but, crispy batter. They top their rings with a sprinkle of red chili flakes, lemon juice, sea salt and parmesan.
I savored two with my salad treating them as the “croutons” and resisting telling everyone how good they were with each bite (4 points+)
My goto salad their when I do not order the Caprese is the Roasted Beet Salad.
I sub out the stinky cheese for fromage blanc. This salad had everything you need to make a delicious beet salad. avocado, lemon vinaigrette, fromage blanc, mâche lettuce, maldon salt
6 points+ ~ I add grilled chicken to this salad when I want “more” to it.
I picked up a bunch of tomatoes at the Saturday Farmer’s market (25 cents each!) On the menu tonight ~ Salsa Fresca with our Farmer’s Market tomatoes, peppers & cilantro.
Plus BBQ Buffalo Quesadillas! These quesadillas are so easy to make and perfect for using up 4 lbs. of leftover pulled pork
I heated a little pork and mixed in some Frank’s Red Hot Sauce with a little BBQ Sauce. Then, topped a Mission Extra Thin Yellow Corn tortilla and “fried” it in nonstick spray.
Topped with a heaping 1 oz. mound of thinly grated Monterey jack cheese. I like thinly grated cheese as it covers more area than the big grates.
Do not even worry about the cheese that melts onto the edges because it creates cheese cripsies on the outside. Cook for about 2-3 minutes per side or until the tortilla is golden brown.
Top a salad plate with a little lettuce blend so the tortilla stays crispy.
Add your spicy, melted pulled pork, cheesy goodness.
Toppers ~ Homemade Salsa Fresca, Jalapenos, green onions and cilantro.
Slice into 6 wedges….
And dig in! So flippin’ good….crunchy, cheesy, corny, spicy pork with hints of sweet barbecue and fresh salsa. Start to finish, dinner was on the table in under 15 minutes.
My entire Spicy Pulled Pork Quesadilla was 8 points+ (deal!)
Dessert x’s 2 (8 points+)
