(hideous, isn't it?)

What do you do when you have a fridge full of leftovers from spaghetti, tacos, some frozen corndogs, and pizza ingredients?

A corndog pizza quesadilla.


It looks really disgusting, especially because I played with the contrast/brightness on the image (for special effects!)... but it was actually kind of tasty.

Costco tortilla shells are awesome, and when you spread leftover spaghetti sauce over one, add some salsa, black olives, pepperoni, diced onions, some cut up corn dogs, and toss a bunch of mozzarella cheese on top, topped with another shell, you end up with a kid-pleasing treat.

I made one without salsa and onions, since my kids don't really deal well with such spice quite yet, and they seemed to eat it just fine.

Also, this is the kind of meal that my kids eat when my wife is out of town, and I've got to come up with ideas for food.

This definitely looks like something Caleb would Noah can look forward to my trips out of town and his daddy creating some crazy-but probably delicious meal.

Kymm - I'm having a hard time picturing Caleb making any kind of food. :P

Luke - yeah, I agree. It does look gross. Kendra said, "it looks like that fat blob on Star Wars." She was referring to Jabba. And it just dawned on me that on Space Balls, the parody of Jabba the Hut was PIZZA the hut, and this is pretty much exactly that. ha!

But it tasted alright, really. Truth be told, I have a very poor sense of taste, so I rarely know if something "actually" tastes good or not.

I wouldn't eat that. BUT... thank you honey or watching the kiddos and feeding them while I was gone. You're a great daddy! I mean, I've never made anything that looked like it came out of a Star Wars movie! ;)
