A Mexican Inspired Evening…

Good Morning!  Happy Tuesday!  I hope your week is off to a great start.  My week is moving very slowly so far.  Yesterday felt like the longest day in the history of the world!  I’m not even sure why.  I was really busy at work but I felt like every time I looked at the clock, time had just stopped.  It was quite odd.  I’m hoping today goes by much quickly.  I think it will because my entire company has a meeting with the CEO this morning.  I’m kind of nervous about it.  He is retiring in a couple of months so I think that is what the meeting is about.  At least I hope it is. 

Anyway, last night for dinner, I knew that we had to eat something other than Italian food since our entire weekend was filled with it.  We had some ground beef that we got on Sunday in the fridge and I was thinking Mexican food.  Originally I was going to make tacos.  Well Mike ended up making tacos but I decided on a Quesadilla composed of random things that surprisingly went well together!

I cooked the ground beef with a packet of taco seasoning.  Then I sautéed some mushrooms and fresh spinach.  I toasted a tortilla and then placed the spinach and mushrooms on top.  I then added the ground beef mixture and placed some cheese on top as well as another tortilla.  I was nervous how it was going to take combining Mexican food with spinach and mushrooms but it worked quite well!  I was missing guacamole and sour cream.  But that is okay. I had enough chips and salsa to almost ruin my dinner.  At least I have some leftovers for lunch today.

A look at the filling

I really liked it!  Plus it was Mexican food and Mexican as we all know is my favorite.  I think Mexican, Japanese and Italian are my favorite cuisines.  What about you?  I really want to try Indian food!  I have heard from numerous amounts of people who say it is amazing.  I’m not a huge fan of the way that curry smells but I know that there are plenty of other things that I can order that do not contain curry.  I’d like to try as many different cuisines as I can.  I think it’s fun trying new things.  Is there is a cuisine that you would like to try that you haven’t yet?
So after dinner, Mike and I watched Gossip Girl.  I cannot believe the cliffhanger that they left us off at!!!  It’s not coming back until January 16th.  That is way too long to wait to see what happens.  I think it was a really good episode though. I  hate that tv shows are going away for now and then coming back in January.  I wish that they would just continue.  It’s too long of a break and then there isn’t much to watch.  Well, I happen to watch a ton of shows.  I just never watch them live. Thank goodness for my DVR!  I don’t know what I would do without that thing!
Anyway, on that note, have a great Tuesday!

  1. I just tried Indian food for the first time a few months ago and loved it. It was definitely on my list of cuisines to try. I love mushrooms and spinach with my Mexican food! A lot of times at restaurants, when I order vegetarian vesions of things, they come with mushrooms and spinach, so I don’t think it’s that uncommon at all. Sounds delicious!

    • That is awesome! I am dying to try it. :) That is cool! I never thought to put spinach and mushrooms with Mexican but it definitely worked in my quesadilla! I liked all of the flavors together. Thanks! :)

  2. I love Mexican food! I have always wanted to try Indian food just to see what it’s like because I heard it tastes really good. :)
