Just Call Me: Martha.

Martha Stewart that is.

One of my goals for January was to (try) and make a new recipe every week.  Well folks, I made two new recipes in less than 24 hours.  For those of you who do not know me, that is huge.  I hate loathe cooking.  I don’t know what it is about cooking, but I would rather pour milk in my cereal and have it in 2 minutes, than slave in the kitchen for 2 hours.  Just saying.

Well, I tried cooking and it was O.K.  I guess… Part of me just wanted to pitch the idea and just make a PB&J, but I persevered and made dinner.  It wasn’t anything special, and I don’t have pictures.  I was to frustrated with my simple dinner to take pictures.  I could have cried.   I made Southwest style quesadillas.  I made my way to the grocery store, half starved to death, to get food for my dillas.  To make them it is pretty simple.

Tortillas

Cheese

Corn & Black Beans

Chicken

I had to call my mom to figure out how to boil a chicken breast.  Is that even how you say it?  Boil?  Whatever, that is what I did.  Once “it turned white, and isn’t pink in the middle,” I took it out and shredded the chicken.  Then I made my dilla!  It was actually very, very delicious.  I also had a side salad.  AKA: Shredded lettuce and a little bit of dressing.  I was pretty excited for actually making something.  :)

Just pretend this is what it looked like. K?

My second recipe of the day was 5 ingredient peanut butter granola bars.  I found this recipe on How Sweet It Is.  Jessica has a great blog all about food, and how to make it.  I knew I was going to have to try them once I saw this recipe.  If you want to learn how to make them yourself click here.  She does a great job of explaining it!

My new apron that my mom gave me!  Never in my life would I have ever thought I would wear one of these…

Yummy, yummy!

I made the mistake of adding in the chocolate chips BEFORE the hot, melted peanut butter.  So the PB kind of melted the CC, and I have chocolate/peanut butter granola bars.

They taste like no bake cookies.  Really good. I was shocked.

Sadie and I are now waiting for Sally to get here!
