lunch on 20 November 2012: chilidillas

Last night I got the brilliant idea to make lunch while I was making dinner (heating up leftover chili and waiting for rice to cook in the rice cooker—not too labor-intensive). I spread some chili on a couple of whole wheat tortillas, sprinkled on some shredded cheese, and heated them in my trusty cast iron pan. Voila: chilidillas! Pretty soon the kids starting sniffing around in the kitchen: “Mommy, what smells so good?” Before I knew it, all of the freshly made chilidillas had been consumed. Maybe it’s not a good idea to make the lunches before dinner when the kiddos are starving. Luckily the pan was still hot because, well, cast iron pans stay hot forever, so I quickly made another batch. With the chilidillas, I threw in some bunny grahams, pretzel fish, and sliced persimmon. This is the last school lunch of the week—whee!
