Chicken Quesadilla

Chicken Quesadilla

We all have days,when you are out most of the day, came back home, tired and question is, what is for dinner? Our summer days get busy at times. Fun kind of busy of course ! One of that kind of  day, my daughter asked me, “Mom, are you going to ask daddy to pick up dinner today?” “No, my child”. I disappointed her. “We are having quesadilla today”. It was my answer couple of days back. ‘Queso’ is ‘Cheese’ in Spanish. Quesadilla is toasted tortilla with melted cheese inside. You can think of it as  a big tortilla sandwich! I used cooked shredded taco chicken with bell pepper and onions as filling, topped with cheese. You can use meat of your choice or keep it vegetarian with potatoes and greens to serve it with chutney. We love ours with generous dose of guacamole 🙂 I have not mentioned any amount.

Guacamole

Guacamole

Can you name some of the snacks from Mexico?  I met Laura,who is from Mexico, couple of days back at a playdate. Won’t you know it that we landed on the fascinating topic of food as we watched our children jump on trampoline or play air hockey? I asked Laura,what she misses the most from Mexico, food wise? She said ‘Empanadas de Cajeta‘(similar to ‘ Khoya Gujhiya’ for my Indian family).She always asks her mom to bring it with her from Mexico.Snack wise,’Guacamole’ with chips or sliced Avocados sprinkled with salt and lime juice is pretty popular too. I quickly identified with Laura’s Empanadas de Cajeta whereas Stacey, who spent her childhood in Brazil, is well familiar with Avocados but not as Guacamole. Brazilians make Avocado smoothie. I had not even heard of Avocados until I got to US.Since it was introduced to me as Guacamole, it is hard for me to imagine in smoothie but I am open to it. We are big fan of avocados in my family.

Peanut Butter Candy

Peanut Butter Candy

Couple of morning back,as i walked by my kitchen counter,i noticed freshly opened peanut butter jar.I also noticed the tracks of small finger in  peanut butter.It was time to make peanut butter candy 🙂 Seems like Ugandan children like peanut just as much mine do. Not surprising knowing the fact that groundnut,as what peanut is called in Africa , is popular crop . Uganda has been in our mind for some time .We had the opportunity to watch  mwangaza  children choir on Resurrection Sunday at our church.Stellar performance. My daughter had the opportunity to briefly meet the sweet little girls who were part of this choir afterwards. So as we were making this candy, we were talking about that day. You should must use heaping help from your kids.Its a requirement.Mine had so much fun mixing and mesuring and rolling it into small candy balls.Of course followed by eating 🙂 It is super sweet and chewy. I keep it refrigerated so it stays that way. I used malted milk powder...
