So we've taken to going to the farmer's market every Wednesday to stock up on fruits, vegetables, nuts, and eggs, because it's ridiculously fresh and happens basically on our doorstep. I thought we had a bunch of vegetables left over from this past week and I was going to make a bombastic stir-fry to get rid of them tonight, but then I opened the fridge and we had:
- two carrots
- one sweet potato
- half of an onion
Foresight is not my strong suit. But! We also had four tortillas left, so I carmelized half an onion, peeled and then carmelized two carrots,* and microwaved a sweet potato within an inch of its life before mashing it with milk, honey, and nutmeg and stirred it all together to make a radioactive kind of root vegetable pudding. And then I lightly fried two tortillas, scooped the spread on top of them, and covered those with two more lightly fried tortillas, and it totally made two yuppie enchiladas. And I liked them, although that might be because I'm like a five year old who doesn't think anything's gross as long as he makes it himself.
*This may or may not be real.
