When it comes to tortillas, I prefer them made with corn. But, a local company here in my area makes a thick flour tortilla that's good for making quesadillas or pan grilled "pizza." I often turn to these tortillas when I'm not in the mood to think very much about making dinner. What would life be like without tortillas? A lot more stressful, in my opinion. On Sunday, I cooked these tortillas in a heavy skillet with Jack cheese, caramelized onions, roasted asparagus, and some fava beans braised in a bit of cream. Very simple, and a great way to use up odds and ends from the fridge. While it was a thrown together meal, it was delicious.
As I made the meal, Carrie The Cow watched and silently asked when I would submit her picture for this month's Centerpiece Of The Month created by the lovely Janelle at Talk Of Tomatoes. Carrie is actually a very cute watering can, but she also does double duty as a vase for flowers. These are from my garden, and help Carrie feel like a Happy California Cow.
