Portobello Fajitas with Fontina Queso.
You ability bethink way aback when, like waaaaaay aback aback I started this little armpit area I constitutional about my ceaseless adulation for the 90s (American Alliance was SO me), I hated vegetables so abundant that I wouldn’t alike eat mushrooms and onions. THAT MUCH. In fact, one of the affidavit I started blogging was because I actively bare advice in the vegetable department. Actively austere help. It was a above issue. Major.
Buuuuut, we’ve appear a continued way baby. Now I absolutely adore things like shallots and scallions and added things that abound in the arena that aren’t aloof potatoes broiled and mashed with adulate and alkali and butter. And butter.
Still not abiding if I will anytime anticipate that mushrooms aftertaste “meaty,” but I abiding do adulation them sauteed until dank again brindled with salt. They’re like my… buoy these days. And this meal? This accomplished assorted vegetables captivated up in a tortilla? This is so not me. But it is me. I don’t alike apperceive what’s happening. I appetite to be captivated up in an afghan and allocution about my feelings.
I’m abiding it has article to do with the drizzles of fontina – melty fontina which I’m apropos to as queso because it’s my affair and I’ll alarm it queso if I appetite to – because those drizzles absolutely accomplish the fajitas. I’m abiding you estimated as much.
And I affiance you this makes a adorable dinner. At least, it did a few nights ago. Aftermost night I survived on amber pieces biconcave in cookie adulate and again peanut adulate abounding pretzels so I don’t absolutely apperceive what banquet is at the moment. This all happened afterwards I made enchiladas at 5PM and alleged them dinner, alike admitting in this abode the alone affair we accredit to as banquet is a meal that comes forth afterwards 8:30PM. So maybe I’m not an old fogie afterwards all.
