No-sweat Cooking, Day 8

Dinner: August 2, 2010

31 dishes, 31 days – I’m cooking my way through Melissa Clark‘s “No-Sweat Cooking” from the August issue of Every Day with Rachael Ray. And to those of you who made your way over here via, welcome!

Black Bean Quesadillas – an absolutely perfect comfort/convenience meal. I’ve always got beans on hand, whether portioned out in the freezer or in cans in the pantry, and cheese and tortillas are staples in our kitchen. This time of year we also keep an abundance of fresh sweet corn and scallions around, as well as the fresh chilies, tomatoes, and cilantro I used to make a quick fresh salsa to top the quesadillas with. Add a little zingy lime crema and some lime-drizzled avocado slices, and you’ve got a perfect, quick summer meal.

    This looks great but what I really want to know is if you are hitting the Local food fest tonight? I hope you are. We were on the wait list but did not get in. Boo. I hope to enjoy it vicariously through your pictures.

    Lydia – It’s so easy to put something like this together with a well-stocked pantry, isn’t it? And it’s so satisfying 🙂

    Elizabeth – We’ll be there! And don’t worry, I’ll be taking plenty of photos for the folks at Farm Fresh RI, and some to share here, too. Really looking forward to it.
