The husbands are still not home from the horse race, and although we were planning to all go out for a casual dinner tonight, Case and I decided to go ahead and cook something here and let the guys fend for themselves.
We assembled mashed bean, pepper + cheese quesadillas using 1/3 cup mashed leftover garbanzo beans, olive oil, a handful of sauteed frozen peppers, pickled jalapenos, cumin, and 1 oz of shredded cheese.
We made a cumin-yogurt sauce (a half tsp or so of cumin, Cholula hot sauce and about 2 oz plain yogurt) for a topping – perfect cool addition to the spicy quesadilla –
On the side we split a baked acorn squash, topped with a bit of brown sugar at the end of cooking –
And lastly, assembled a quick Boston head lettuce salad with toasted sliced almonds and a homemade lime-balsamic dressing.
From above, on new Crate + Barrel placemats and a ginko plate! LOVE these! Successful shopping trip today
