Not your typical Quesadilla

Don't forget to leave a comment to win the book, Head in the Clouds!

Yesterday after church, we went to eat at a non-fast food place.  The company was delightful.  The chips, salsa and queso were bottomless.  Non-Fast were the operative words here--we didn't leave till 2:00 and that meant naptime was about over!

The food--meh....

Something was lost in the translation, I suspect.  I ordered a chicken Quesadilla.  Then a overheard a few of our party ordering sides and I thought--I want a side that is not rice and beans.  So I asked the server if I could have a side of steamed veggies.

And she said sure.

English is not her native language.

I got an order of steamed veggies as a side.  I took a bite of my lumpy, bumpy, apparently chicken and cheese filled tortilla.  The chicken had a funny taste.  And texture.  The white stuff turned out to be cauliflower, not chicken

Apparently, all unaware, I changed my order to steamed veggies on the side.  And an order of steamed veggies inside my non-chicken quesadilla.

Bleh.  I do not recommend it!

Our FAVORITE restaurant here is a Mexican place where the waiters do not speak much English. I've picked up enough "foodlish" to get along ordering - - - and it is soooooo good.

LOL about the cauliflower quesadilla!!! Certainly not good when you were expecting chicken!!!

Egads...I never send food back, but I might have in this case.

That would have given me a seizure. But then again I would never order steamed veggies.

That does not even sound good.

Well, I have had trouble with fish tacos so I am sure that a cauliflower quesidilla would not be on my menu. Not quite Tex- Mex for me. This is too funny. ked

well I don't know where that last little ked came from.
