    Last night, Budget Bytes recipe... Hearty Black Bean Quesadillas (but I used far less* cheese so I could eat more; this was bad bc without cheese, the tortillas (Tumaro's; 60 cal; Let's Skip the Sandwich Wraps from grocery store deli area) don't stay closed well). Still yummy! I have made these before with roasted sweet potatoes and chicken added, but ran out of time to cook this week :neutral:

    Basically 1 can of black beans (or 15 oz cooked beans), garlic, onion, taco seasoning/DIY, added a little salsa, and 2 slices of fontina cheese (chopped). Recipe said 1/2c per small tortilla. Makes 10 servings (only 8 in my hands).

    Roughly 90 cal* plus 60 for my wrap -> 150 cal each. A little lime juice makes it even better.

    These freeze well.

    Dinner tonight had a little more thought, given the soft foods diet. Scalloped swede with bacon bits. I should have added more salt, only I think it's better to under salt it VS ruining the dish. Fried coconut dusted fish. Salad. I did let the mozzarella topping get crusted over to a nice golden brown. I didn't think it needed more salt btw.

    Made BBQ chicken wings for lunch. I did want to fry them ... Only, baking them was more convenient. Cream of chicken vegetable soup - made a roux then added the heavy cream + full milk ( to thin it out) and later the parmesan cheese which was then added to the drained, cooked in stock boil up veggies and chicken for that buttery creaminess. Low carb cheddar bay biscuits.
