In terms of illness, what’s worse than the stomach flu? If I wasn’t afflicted with it just this past week, I could think of lots of things. However, since it’s still so fresh in my mind, I’d have to say nothing. Great balls of fire, people. NOT FUN. Add insult to injury – Haley got it, too. But wait, there’s more! Paul was out of town on business (which was cut short, due to my inability to function and feed our kids.)
It is at this time I would like to thank my friend Christy for listening to me die a slow death on the phone, and a huge thanks to Cathy for the speedy market run and Ginger Ale that followed.
48 hours later, life went back to normal. And just in time for Haley’s 4th birthday party, which I think went off without a hitch (other than the ringing in my ears.) Anyone?
Anyway, this was the first thing I made upon getting my appetite back. It’s from one of the special edition Cooking Light magazines that sister Jen sent me a while back. It was also highlighted with a color-coded sticky, including notes (tell me we’re not related…)
Beans? Check. Corn? Check. Tortillas? Check. Parsley? Check. Monterey Jack with Jalapenos…uh…where the hell do you find that? How about Pepper Jack instead? Check. Leftover rotisserie chicken? Well, of course. Check, check.
Easy and fast. Sweetness from the toasted corn and some heat from the cheese. Delish. And honestly, I preferred it without the chicken.
