Brave Little Toaster

brave little toaster.

I don't have a meme or anything, but if I did, right towards the top there's be:

1. Julie does not cook. Ever.

And I don't! I do not cook. It seems amazing. As much as I love food, that love is equaled by my laziness, and it is really much easier to purchase food already prepared. The most preparation of food I've done in quite awhile is add milk to cereal. Oooh, two ingredients... wicked! I'll buy the junky fast food, or at most nuke up some microwavable goodies.

But last night was different. Oh yes, last night, I do believe, I cooked.

I cannot be sure, because my definition of "cooking" is probably very twisted from its normal meaning, but I think I actually did it last night. I took store-bought tortillas, pre-grated "mexican" cheese, and those pre-cooked grilled chicken pieces, slapped 'em all together, folded the tortilla and placed it in the toaster oven. Yes, I made me a quesadilla... isn't that great?!?

For sure, it was not great, the tortilla got a bit harder than I would have liked, and the cheese was "lowfat", so the melted cheese was a bit rubbery, but I made it myself, and I couldn't be more pleased. Today, at work, I'm even gonna make me a sandwich... all by myself! I am on a roll (no pun intended, or maybe, yes, the pun was gratuitous).
