Avocado Plus Tortillas QED

For us, Sunday dinner is a last minute decision.  True, with summer here, I imagine we will be using our barbecue more often.  On the other hand, with the cutting down of meat, I may want to stay away from it.  The barbecue says to me, what I will call plain food, burgers and hot dogs.  Even though, we barbecue chicken and other good foods, when I see that grill, I want a hot dog or burger.

On Saturday, we eat a big meal and a festive one which means Sunday is crying for casual.  Usually, I throw something together, maybe a new recipe, or one that pops into my mind, or an really old standby, altered.  It is almost always easy to do. 

This Sunday, I made a take off on grilled cheese although there was absolutely no grilling.  In fact, I pulled out the microwave to make these quickly.  I don't recommend it though.  I would use the oven to make this a lot better.

Since we almost hide our gluten-free bread so it will take us through the week, I don't use it for so many of my cravings, French toast, grilled cheese or just sandwiches.  What does a gal do, when she is craving grilled cheese and has no bread to use.  (Just a point - I keep little regular bread in the house.  I am not comfortable eating when hubby can't.)

Tonight, I pulled out the corn tortilla, tomatoes, avocado, cheese and onions and Baco Bits.  Since, we are kosher, we do not eat bacon but I have had this phony bottle of imitation bacon bits, in my cupboard for a very looooooong time.  (Spell check is going to give me a hard time on long.)  I sliced the tomatoes and avocados and chopped the onions.  I cut up the cheese in about two inch rectangles.  Piled everything on that tortilla, microwaved 45 seconds and ate a cheesy, delicious, messy tortilla.

Serve with a big salad with lots of greens.
