Pork and Rice Quesadillas

Let’s talk politics. Ok, I don’t really have a great debate prepared here, really, I am a little disappointed in something. I went and applied for college the other day (yes, that’s long over due) and found out I could not get accepted into the program I would like without a health care plan. At last loose google check, approximately 40% of Americans don’t have health coverage. I am a young, healthy person. I work at a small shop that can not afford to offer health care for their employees, it would simply cost the business too much (there are only 4 of us). I also, don’t make enough and am relatively healthy enough to justify the cost of having health care. Now, I don’t believe that means that I get to sit in the ER and not pay my medical bills when I do occasionally get sick. I bear the brunt and pony up the cash, but $80 for an office visit and antibiotic is much less then $100+ every month for a just in case. When it does become mandatory for individuals to have health insurance I hope I can find a cheap plan that takes care of me, but I wasn’t planning on that quite yet.

 

I can understand that the school would want their students to have health care for general safety reasons, but that isn’t going to stop anyone from suing if they fall down a flight of stairs because they tripped over a loose wire or something. So I guess I don’t really understand why health care is a prerequisite for being accepted. :( Either way, I need to get my crap together and get my booty into school.

 

Back to cooking! What does one do with 4lbs of leftover smoked pork loin?

 

 

 

These were awesomely tasty! I almost didn’t make it because I was feeling lazy and unmotivated but I am glad I did. Super simple, super quick and a great use of leftovers. Plus it’s one of those customize-to-fit-your-needs kind of recipes. See we all win!

 

PS. love my octopus plate. :D

  1. The recipe looks yummy! I can’t figure out why health insurance would be required, that’s a bummer. Good luck!

  2. These quesadillas look super filling!

    And wth is up with having to have health insurance to study something? Very odd.

  3. I’ve been trying to perfect a whole wheat tortilla recipe, so this gives me something fun to use with all the tortillas I’ve been making. :)

  4. I could totally eat cheese and bread in any form, especially quesadillas. They’re so easy to make and they really fill me up. Your recipe looks delicious. I usually make these Quick Chicken Quesadillas. I love them!

  5. I made this today, it was good ,but I like my breads a little more moist. Next time I will try applesauce instead of oil, and more cinnamon & nutmeg.
