You know those days where nothing sounds good? I wanted chicken, broccoli, and cauliflower, but not pasta. I wanted something bread-like with it, but bread didn’t sound good.

Chicken and Veggie Triangles
2 c broccoli pieces
1 c cauliflower pieces
1 c shredded, cooked chicken
¼ c feta cheese
1 c any kind shredded cheese (I used mozzarella and farmer’s)
If there is something that I like better than regular homemade bread, it’s cheesy homemade bread. The recipe is very simple if you already have frozen soaked whole wheat flour. I follow the basic recipe for Soaked Flour Whole Wheat Bread, with a few small changes.
I have tomatoes in abundance right now. And if I don’t use them up soon, they’ll be too ripe for anything other than sauces. So this is another one of those “gotta use it up!” recipes.
WARNING: I have changed this recipe slightly since I made it. The rice wasn’t done (I actually followed the rice directions from a recipe, too!), so I have adjusted the cooking time.
Yesterday evening was an “oh-great-supper-needs-to-be-ready-soon-and-I-don’t-have-a-plan” night. I took a quick refrigerator, freezer, and pantry inventory.

Why don’t I make fifty homemade tortillas in the two hours I have before supper?” I had frozen black beans in the freezer. And, as always, I had cheese. Logical conclusion? Black Bean Quesadillas!
