This week, I’m making spooky Halloween Meals to celebrate one of my favorite holidays with Marco. We’re going to end the week by visiting the Haunted House at his school (and hopefully it’s not TOO scary… because this kid cries in Walgreens over a skeleton/ghost decoration)!
First up: Jack-O-Lantern Quesadillas!
I apparently make Quesadillas all the time. If you don’t believe me, you can go here and here. Truthfully, I just really like tortillas, and by putting some kind of filling in them, I can eat them without seeming like weirdo (but… I do sometimes just eat the plain bread as a snack).
I got the inspiration for this meal from myrecipes.com: Jack-O-Lantern Quesadillas. But I modified it to fit Mr Marco’s picky tastes, and of course, I used salt, rather than oil, to crisp them up.
Step 4: Sprinkle a coarse salt, like sea salt, into a pan and crisp the face tortilla. Remove the face from the pan and set aside.
Marco was very impressed with the look of these Quesadillas– but sadly, he didn’t so much like the Sharp Cheddar Cheese. I’ll have to go with mild cheddar, or American next time.
Hopefully tonight’s dinner: Bat Noodles with Orange Halloween Sauce and Bat Garlic Bread will be a bigger hit. And don’t worry– after an extensive Google search, I determined that it’s totally fine to let your kids eat Vodka Sauce. But not Rum Cake.
