My Food Creation



While Hayley spent most of the day bagging groceries at EconoFoods (part of the 8-18 Media fundraising plans to help cover the costs for the two Convention teams), I headed out to Park Cemetery to take some photos around the ponds. When it got close to dinner time, and Hayley still wasn't home, I searched the refrigerator and cupboards for something simple to throw together for myself.

There wasn't much to choose from, since I haven't been able to do my normal large-scale grocery shopping for the month. What I decided to do was take a flour tortilla, brown it in oil, then set it aside on some paper towels to soak up the excess oil. In the meantime, I fried some chopped white onion in margarine, sliced up half of an avacado and sprinkled it with salt. After the tortilla cooled off, I spread some sour cream over it, then topped it off with a shredded taco-seasoned cheese mixture, the avacado slices and fried onion. Once that was all put together, I sliced it up and ate it like you would a pizza.

It was really good, but I think I'll make some changes if I make it again. For starters, I'll probably mash up the avacado and put that on the bottom. The sour cream was a bit too thick, so I'll just dab some on the top of the "pizza" next time. I'm guessing it'd be good with tomato on it as well, but 1) I don't have any, and 2) I'm not fond of them unless they're cooked in chili or something.

I'm sure there are a lot of ways to do this easy meal. So be creative! :^)
