lunch on 20 February 2013: crazy carb casserole

I wasn’t really intending to make a crazy carb casserole for lunch today. It started out as a burrito-y thing filled with some cheese and delicious left over Mexican-style bean, cheese and rice soup. There was only one problem: my whole wheat tortillas were a little past their prime and started to crack and explode when I tried to crisp up the burritos in my trusty cast iron pan. Because I hate waste, I decided to chop the whole mess up and—voila!—crazy carb casserole, chilaquiles-style. I looks a little like a pile of garbage, but at least one kiddo ate every last bite of it. On the side, we have some carrots, grape tomatoes and applesauce with plain yogurt and honey. You see those two cookies that look like Nilla Wafers? Well, they are imposters. Once again, I foolishly tried an “organic” store brand version of Nilla Wafers. Bah! There is no substitute for the amazing flavor of the Nabisco originals.
