Pollo Tocino Quesadillas

Quick quesadillas that you should add to your Gastric Harmony line-up.

  • Burrito Sized Flour Tortillas
  • Pre-cooked fajita chicken meat
  • Oscar Myers pre-cooked bacon
  • Kraft shredded Mexican Four Cheese
  • Pico de gallo
  • Butter
Heat up large pan and add butter, chicken and bacon.
Remove chicken and bacon after heating and place in a bowl.
Add table spoon of butter (or more) to the pan and place large tortilla in the pan.
Add the shredded cheese, meat and pico to one half of the tortilla
As the cheese begins to melt, fold the tortilla in half.
Lightly brown/toast the quesadilla and serve.
Since all of the ingredients are pre-made and pre-cooked, this meal is mostly done to begin with.  It should only take a few minutes to prepare and cook each one.

Is that really a word?

One of my pet peeves is the torture of the English language. Now, I don’t profess to be a wizard on the topic, but I used to know a thing or two.

“Myself and Joe went golfing.” Nice one Mr. Webster! Pro football stars seem to be the biggest offenders of the incorrect use of ‘myself’. It sends audio lightning bolts to my ears when I hear it.

This post is supposed to be about non-words! Myself is a real word. What gives?

Alright, I’m getting to it.

Here is a short list of grammatical injustices:

  • Heighth: Not a real word, stop using it. Are you confused with width?
  • Object-Orientated: Maybe it passes the spell-check muster, but it hurts my ears. You have 2 choices here; object-orientation or object-oriented. Pick one.
  • Based Off: It is ‘based on’ in my book.
  • Nucular: The way I spell it is n.u.c.l.e.a.r. Pronounced, new-klee-ur.
  • Any adverb without the -ly: “You guys played bad.” instead of “You guys played badly.”

I’m sure there are more that tick me off, but I can’t think of any more at this time. I will keep this list updated as they return to my brain.

It’s been a slice,

Gastric Harmony = Sync-a-belly

What is gastric harmony.

It’s a place where we can share the thoughts and comments that make us laugh.  We hope that our blog will bring a bit of laughter and a small bit of “I’ve thought that as well” moments to your day.  Who knows what it will become, but we plan to have fun getting there.

The name of the site comes from just that experience.  Gastric Harmony is a male version of what happens to women when they spend a lot of time together.  It was the definition we came up with to describe something that happened at work.  We seemed to come out of our offices, not unlike bears after hibernation, at the same time asking where lunch will be today.  We haven’t decided who has the “Alpha-Stomach” yet, but we’re sure to be debating that topic on the way to the food.

So, now that we have coined a term and started yet another blog, let’s see what other irrelevant things can make us smile and have a little bit of levity from our daily feed.
