What a great life!

I have to tell you that I really think that I have the best job in all of drag racing. I get to do exactly what I love in life. I get to cook and make people happy.

The guys on the team work really hard getting the car ready to race. It seems to me like a majority of their job is continually making the right decisions. Normally when they come in the kitchen to eat, they don't have to or want to make any decisions. I take care of that for them. Every once in a while I have them make a decision on what they are going to eat. It's not a regular decision. It may even be a little confusing like the first time I gave them the option to have a root beer float, or a reverse root beer float. I wish that you could see their faces because who has heard of a reverse root beer float. It is root beer ice cream with cream soda. They had to make a decision. Do they go with something that they know they love? Or, do they take a chance that they will like the reverse side better?

I love for them to try new foods. This brings me to a recipe that I would love to share with all of you. It is a very simple to make. It takes just a matter of minutes. It is also one that you can confuse people with by asking: Who wants a quesadilla for dessert? Who has ever heard of a quesadilla for dessert? Well, here is the recipe for one that I really think that you are going to love.

Rhubarb Quesadilla
(1 Portion)

Ingredients:
¾ CupRhubarb (Fresh- ¼ Inch Diced)
½ Teaspoon Lemon Zest
2 Teaspoons Orange Juice (Fresh Squeezed)
1/3 Cup Sugar (Granulated)
1 Teaspoon Grand Marnier
1 Tablespoon Water
1 Tablespoon Butter (Lightly Salted- Melted)
1 Each Flour Tortilla (10 Inch)
6 Slices Star Fruit

Procedure:

Simmer the rhubarb, lemon zest, orange juice, sugar, Grand Marnier, and water until rhubarb is tender. Remove the rhubarb; reserve the juice.

Brush the butter on one side of the flour tortilla. Place the buttered side down in a 10-12 inch non-stick skillet over medium heat. (You may be able to do this on your grill too)

Sprinkle the rhubarb over half of the flour tortilla. Fold the flour tortilla in half and brown on both sides. Remove the browned tortilla and cut it in half.

Warm the star fruit in the rhubarb juice.

Arrange the tortilla and star fruit on a plate and pour remaining rhubarb juice over the whole dessert.

Note: This is also really good served with lemon ice cream.

Enjoy!
