Two Days, One Dish

February 11, 2011

One thing I’ve realized over the past few days is that a few vegetables go very far!  Every dish I’ve made so far this week has made at least 2, and often 3-4 meals.  I ended up stretching out last night’s dinner to tonight’s lunch and (part of) tonight’s dinner.  Somehow, I forgot to take pictures of its original incarnation, but I remembered to take pictures of lunch today, which was a remixed version of the same ingredients:

The base is a Trader Joe’s whole wheat tortilla, topped with a mixture of sauteed onions, black beans, and Trader Joe’s fire roasted diced tomatoes with chiles (drained of their juice).  I decided to make a pseudo-quesadilla by topping it with half an avocado mashed with a little lime juice and salt:

I finished it off by topping it with another tortilla, then baking it in my toaster oven at 350 degrees for about 5 minutes.  It got really crispy and it was delicious.  It was REALLY filling, so I only ate half and saved the other half for dinner along with some re-heated sweet potato wedges.

What was your Friday night dinner?  Did you go out or stay in?
