Vegetarian Week - DAY 2

Breakfast this morning was a toasted crumpet with peanut butter and some cherries.

For lunch I had packed a green salad and gazpacho soup. I had poured my salad dressing into a smaller container and put that in with the salad. Sometime, I guess last night, the dressing leaked out and by lunch the salad was a soggy mess. I fought off my boss and his ham sandwich and got some vegetable pasta salad from the deli instead.

Mmmmm soup.

For dinner tonight I made Brie and Mango Quesadillas. I used a really nice Brie that we bought on our holidays in BC earlier this month. My mango was kind of funky so I didn't get as much flesh off as I hoped, but this is for sure a repeat dish. We layered slices of Brie with mango, jalapeno, chopped green onions and cilantro on one half of a whole wheat flour tortilla. Fold over the other half and cook over medium-low heat on both sides until hot and melty. We made a sour cream sauce to accompany - just lime juice salt and cayenne pepper stirred into sour cream.

Very delicious.
