Week 48 Friday (12/12/14)

Recipe Review
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Butternut Squash and Kale Quesadillas        
Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

         Well, this one should be no surprise to anyone that I have to pass on it. I love pumpkin, but am not a fan of any type of squash. The other issue is kale (too green for me).
         Did you know that the original quesadillas were made with corn tortillas and not wheat? In America, we adapted this old world Mexican food to fit our tastes here in the states. We added a lot of cheeses and meats to satisfy our likes and dislikes.
         Every site I visited said they didn’t know who invented this wonderful food. In my mind, I want to believe it was a Mexican woman slaving over an outside fireplace to create dinner for her family. This would have been before the invention of electricity and ovens.
         I just know that I love quesadillas. They are wonderful hors de oeuvres as well as a great dinner dish. I don’t have anyone to thank, but I will continue to see that hard-working woman, who worked her hands raw making those tortilla shells. Thanks for everything senorita.
