maybe i embrace meat a little too much. i admit to feeling heart broken and disappointed when a meal goes by without any sort of flesh. like coming across a three legged dog, or french fries w/out ketchup or mayo. once we were invited to a dinner party where the host was a vegan/raw-foodist. i feigned illness but my wife insisted. i went reluctantly, somewhat soothed knowing there was a can of vienna sausages in the glove box (the dinner was actually a pretty amazing mix of nuts, avocado, and fresh greens from her garden, finished with a to-die-for tahini dressing). so yesterday a recipe popped up on twitter for a good old texan queso. later at the supermarket there was lots of decent looking asparagus and cute bags of little yellow skagit valley potato's. some ground chuck, yet another chunk of corned beef, and a plump skagit valley hen. i'd figure out the rest at home.
decided to quick roast potato's/asparagus @450'. made queso. held off till last minute to grill up some burgers just when my son gets home late from lacrosse. but the latter never happened as we all made up simple bowls of roast veggies topped with queso. yummy. never a 'where's the beef?' this version is so simple. @3/4lb sharp cheddar, 1/4lb jack, both grated, mix in pot, sprinkle 1T cornstarch, add 1/4 cup milk, @1/2 medium onion diced, 1 small can green diced chilis. melt/stir, then keep on super low heat till serving.
