Crazy for Quesadillas

I’ve been on a quesadilla-eating roll this week. Monday lunch, Tuesday dinner, Wednesday dinner… and most likely tomorrow for lunch again. Yeah, I have an unhealthy relationship with Mexican food.

So, you ask, how in the world am I still alive after eating Mexican food for three consecutive days?

The answer is: I have an unhealthy relationship with healthy Mexican food. ¿Entiendes?These quesadillas are filled to the brim with veggies – green bell peppers and mushrooms, piled on top of a layer of lean rotisserie chicken breast for a boost of protein. Because I love barbecue sauce, I also added two tablespoons of Kraft’s Garlic BBQ sauce. I cut up two wedges of Laughing Cow Light cheese, which is a healthier alternative than regular cheese; at 25 calories/wedge, it has less fat and calories than the typical Cheddar or Mozzarella. Finally, the tortilla is made of whole grains and contains 5g of protein and 4g of fibre! I know this quesadilla has “healthy” written all over it, but give it a try, and you will find that it tastes anything but healthy!

What have you been crazy for lately?

Celebrating Christmas in May

Merry Christmas everyone!

What? Don’t you celebrate Christmas?

Ohh… You don’t celebrate Christmas in May. Is that why you’re giving me a weird look?

Psh… have some Christmas spirit guys. Last time I checked, Christmas is on May 30. I mean, why else am I wearing red and green, eating a Christmas-coloured salad, and baking chocolate chip cookies? It surely can’t be a coincidence.Oh, and I still haven’t taken down my Christmas lights. Therefore, it must be Christmas today!

What amazing/strange coincidences have you experienced?

An Eggcellent Source of Protein

I like eggs.

Hard boiled eggs, sunny side up eggs, poached eggs, soft boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, omelettes, over easy eggs, over medium eggs, eggs Benedict, egg salad, devilled eggs, egg custards, egg tarts, frittatas, egg mugs, toad in a hole…

I like eggs so much that I would totally dress up as one for Halloween. Not kidding. (The only difference is that I won’t look as adorable as this kid.)

By now, you should not be surprised that I had scrambled eggs with chives on two slices of toasted baguette for lunch today.Finally, I couldn’t help myself but to insert a cheesy egg joke at the end.

Q: Why couldn’t the Egg family watch tv?
A: Because their cable was scrambled.

Hahaha, get it?

Do You Know Your Acronyms?

So… as some of you know, I got twitter yesterday and have been tweeting nonstop.

Twitter is like…

  • crack
  • potato chips
  • sweet potato fries
  • or these brownies

What I mean is… once you start, you can’t stop. I just don’t think it’s possible for me to eat one sweet potato fry. *shudders at the thought*

Anyways, twitter is pretty cool, except for the 140 character limit. Well, I suppose it’s not entirely bad…

It’s a blessing because it limits me from rambling too much, but it’s a curse because I have to resort to acronyms to fit everything in. I know the basic ones, but if someone sends me something like, “GTK, DILLIGAD”, I’ll be completely lost. (That means “good to know, do I look like I give a damn?” btw.)

Take this test to find out how well you know your internet acronyms! (No cheating!)

  1. STFU
  2. LMAO
  3. BBL
  4. SWDYT
  5. LMK
  6. KISS
  7. AFAIC
  9. TWSS
  10. PITA


  1. Shut the f*** up
  2. Laughing my a** off
  3. Be back later
  4. So what do you think?
  5. Let me know
  6. Keep it simple stupid
  7. As far as I’m concerned
  8. Rolling on floor laughing my a** off and scaring the cat
  9. That’s what she said
  10. Pain in the a**

Give yourself a pat on the back if you got all ten! FYI, I got these from this site.

Comment below what your most frequently used acronym is. Feel free to follow me on twitter at CCCHICKPEAS 🙂

I Like It Hot

When I was younger, I used to avoid spicy food like the plague. No matter how delicious something was, if it was spicy, I would not eat it. As a result, I missed out on a lot of delicious food. 😦

Then, when I was 16, I suddenly decided I was going to eat spicy food. Epiphanies. They’re real.

I don’t eat spicy food all day, every day, but I do enjoy the occasional spicy dish. I was craving something warm and spicy today, so I had hot and spicy ramen noodles for lunch. Mmm!What do you eat now that you wouldn’t eat as a kid?
