Tortillas Para Mi.

{a cool study, via ffffound}

Over the past week or so, I've completely resigned myself to not cooking at all.  That's midterms for you, and mine have dragged on and on, almost taking up three entire weeks.  All I eat are bland turkey sandwiches, and to make matters worse, I seem to have befriended the vending machine in the basement of the English building.  Last night I attempted to get creative with a salad but it was not a rewarding endeavor.  Let's just say that there was some spinach, grapefruit and...garbanzo beans.  Don't ask me how they got in there.  All my creative energy has been funneled into writing essays and the result leaves me with harebrained ideas in the kitchen.  It is time for a proper home-cooked meal... after I get to the grocery store, anyway.

What I should have done before midterms began was find MattBites, an online foodie blog, and read his column, "Anything Inside a Tortilla."  With the ideas he comes up with, the student fare food of tortillas actually looks kind of exciting.  Also, surprisingly, his ideas would have ended up producing me with breakfast, lunch, dinner and even dessert.  Here are a few of my favorites - you better believe I'm stocking them up in my recipe files for when finals arrive!

Mark Bittman's book has lots of great recipes that are more "guidelines", so if you don't have one ingredient, you can easily change it around. I also like to have casseroles in the freezer--and soup--so when I can't cook, I can still eat. The Good Housekeeping soup diet is my latest fave. You make a huge pot of basic soup and then add various things. It is tasty and esy! It does require planning ahead enough to take something out the night before.
