Alas, I have failed as a mother, as a parent, as the next graduate of whatever is latest culinary school of the moment!!! My six-year-old son told me this evening he wanted a flour tortilla with cheese for dinner because that's what they made in Kindergarten today. Friday is fun day so we experiment with casual dinning (sure, go ahead call it eating crap day!) So I say, "hey, no problem, cheese quesadilla! Piece of cake!" I pull out the shredded cheese, flour tortillas and frying pan. At that very moment he's shrieking, "You’re doing it wrong!! Seriously, Cheese Quesadilla's isn't exactly Emril or Julia Child material. I've done this dozens of times, no problem. So, I talked him through it, helping him flip it in the pan, swirl it around and eventually slice it with the pizza slicer, the thrill of it all lasted approximately 1 1/2 minutes. Once completed and his first bite taken, the shriek retuned and once again I was reminded, "That's not how your suppossed to make it!" I messed up big time.
I was then instructed how to properly make a cheese quesadilla. Please note the following recipe for future references:
1 - Flour Tortilla
1 - Slice of American Cheese (do not confuse this with real shredded cheese, big mistake!)
1 - Paper towel
1 - Hot Iron
Remove plastic from slice of imposter cheese, lay on tortilla and fold in half. Place paper towel on top and place hot iron on top to heat and melt. Do not allow burning smell to fill room!
Alas, the stove, microwave, grill, whatever heating device you currently use is not longer in style. Who knew?
