New Concoctions

My neighbors think I'm off my rocker. . .but I've made some very interesting food discoveries in the past week. It's amazing what you can do with limited ingredients.
Discovery #1 - impromtu chip dip: I had potato chips & once in a while I like to dip them in ketchup. . .don't knock it. . .have you ever had really crispy french fries? This is like the same thing. But this isn't the discovery. I decided to combine the ketchup (organic of course) with some organic raspberry preserves. This was INCREDIBLE! Remember a while back when Tastefully Simple had the Raspberry Chipotle sauce? This is better because there was something in the TS stuff that inevitably sent me running to the bathroom. . .sorry for the explanation there.

Discovery #2 - made at lunch today as a matter of fact. . . have you been to PB Loco yet? This idea was inspired by that place. The boys had quesadillas. . but I ran out of cheese. . .so I had to punt for my own lunch. We have Peanut butter. . . we have cream cheese. And we have raspberry preserves. . why not combine these??? Oh, & let's not forget the green onions! So I took a flour tortilla, slapped some cream cheese, peanut butter & rasp on it. . .& then cut up the green onions. . .wrapped that baby up & then heated it in a pan for a few minutes to meld the flavors a bit. Voila! This was absolutely YUM! I think PB Loco has a version like this only they add lettuce & shredded carrots. . .& maybe some other stuff. Very filling!

Off to the races tomorrow. . . no pun on that one. I'll have pics to share I'm sure:)

I think I'll take your word for it ;o). I do love to put tuna in my mac and cheese which grosses people out for some reason. I'm also a big fan of dipping french fries in a thick chocolate shake. Oh, now I'm hungry.

Have fun at Nascar!
