I mean, most of us do at one point or another.  I kept wanting to post about the fun sandwiches I’ve made since discovering that there is more than just “meat and cheese” sandwiches, but I pretty much make a toasted sandwich every day for lunch and that’s a lot of time to take a picture of every layer.  Ugh.  I’m just that lazy.  However, there is a solution to this!  A new page!  Click on “Foodage” and you will find a page dedicated to things like sandwich recipes, where it’s much easier to list the “layers” of the sandwich and a picture wouldn’t do the taste much justice anyway.  Right now, there’s only one sandwich on there, but I expect varieties of other similar items (i.e. quesadillas, pita “sandwiches”, wraps, etc.) will appear occasionally.  They will be things that are AWESOME but that really don’t need their own post.  Keep checking back for fun and interesting ways to keep you (mostly lunch) dishes fresh and exciting!!  – 20 laziness

I really wanted to make some kind of macaroni and cheese dish tonight, but didn’t have much time.  Instead I pulled a bunch of things out of my fridge and prepared for failure.

I’m an engineer and my cooking reflects that.  I prefer baking because the instructions are explicit, but with cooking, throwing stuff together is the general idea.  So, my engineering side is super uncomfortable when food comes without directions.  My husband is really good at it, a skill he got from his mom, so I’ve been learning.  This was one of those learning moments.  Fortunately, it worked out and I wolfed my quesadilla down.  Unfortunately, I didn’t get many pictures, except for after I started eating it.  -5 preparation.

Tomato Spinach Apple Quesadilla | doomthings

Ingredients (single serving):

  • flour tortilla
  • 2 slices havarti cheese
  • 4 thin granny smith apple slices
  • spinach leaves
  • 1 small tomato, thinly sliced
  • hot pepper jelly spread
  • fig and walnut spread


  1. Preheat a toaster over to 350 degrees F (or oven if you’re making a lot!).
  2. Place the cheese slices on one-half of the tortilla.
  3. Stack the apple slices, spinach leaves, and tomato slices on top of the cheese.
  4. Spread the two jellies on the empty half of the tortilla.
  5. Fold the tortilla in half to form a crescent shape.
  6. Place the quesadilla in the oven until the cheese is nice and melty (between 5 and 10 minutes, depending on how crispy you want the tortilla).


This turned out pretty good.  I wasn’t sure if the flavors would work together, but it proved me wrong with a blast of tasty goodness to my face.  Yay for throwing fridge-food onto a tortilla!
