I’m a Chef! 15-Minute Dominican Style Quesadilla with Leftovers

I’m a Chef! 15-Minute Dominican Style Quesadilla with Leftovers

Thanks to my epiphany I cook 15-minute meals and don’t spend an hour in the kitchen.

I’ve decided to stop trying so hard at this #momlife thing. I’ve decided to stop trying to be perfect and just do what I can and the best that I can.

This decision was made after reflecting on the kind of mother and partner I was told and taught to be. As a Latina, you have to be a master chef, a seductress en la cama and a nurturing and overprotective mama that will give her left tit for her kid. I’d still do that for my son, Evan, but the rest is going out of the window. 

Take cooking, for example. Before these aha moments, I would rush home from my day job and cook a warm meal every day. Never mind if there were leftovers in the fridge. Never mind that I found myself throwing away said leftovers from the fridge the very next week. I thought it was my duty to chef it up no matter how tired I felt. 

Ahora? Hell to the nah. Thanks to my epiphany I now cook 15-minute meals and don’t spend over an hour in the kitchen. Thanks to my epiphany I reinvent leftovers. Thanks to my epiphany and my current “I don’t give a fuck about el que diran mentality I took left over meat sauce from an Italian spaghetti with meat sauce meal that I cooked, took the meat sauce, heated it up and re-seasoned the meat sauce and made a quesadilla in 15 minutes. Sure, it tastes nothing like a Mexican quesadilla. Cause…I’m Dominican, baby!
