I had tortillas, celery, a bunch of mint, a bag of mixed Italian cheeses, and a whole slew of condiments staring back at me. I though to myself, "Well the only option would be a quesadilla, but those Italian cheeses would be bland and weird-tasting with my expired bottle of Taco Bell mild sauce."* Sadly, I've run out of real salsa and thought this was my last resort until I reached into the bottomless pit that is my condiments shelf (I have an entire collection, see below). I pulled out a small jar of barely used cherry jam I had made late last year. So it goes, I made this random but delicious combination of salty and sweet. It hit the spot with a dollop of sour cream. I could see this being even more awesome with some goat cheese smeared in there or if you're being fancy, layering the cheese with some caramelized onions.
*Sure, I use quotations because really, I was having a conversation in my head. No, I'm not crazy.**
**Okay, maybe a little since I have a full size bottle of expired Taco Bell mild sauce still sitting in my fridge.
I need to get to a real grocery store stat.
Oh and Happy Birthday Mom!!!
