A Question About Master Stock and a Note About Facebook

First, has anyone ever made/used master stock? It's a Chinese thing where the same liquid is used to braise things over and over, in China some are claimed to be hundreds of years old apparently. I'm starting one as I type this but I was wondering if anyone had any tips.

As for Facebook, it can now officially bite me. My account seems to have disappeared, I can't log in or even get it acknowledged that it exists. So if you've been trying to contact me through there I won't be getting it. However I'm still here, so if you have something to tell/ask/whatever this is the place to do it. Thank you for your time.

So. Also Omelet Quesadilla

Right, I don't think I'm even going to pretend I'm going to update regularly for the foreseeable future. Too much going on, not much of it fun or of any relation to this blog. But, I'll still post occasionally, maybe even with recipes. Heh.

In the meantime, this is that omelet quesadilla I posted about the other day. It's wicked easy, you just take tin foil, lightly grease it, put a tortilla on it and shape the foil so it makes a shallow dish like an upside down frisbee. Doing all this on a baking sheet is a good idea.The fillings, I just went with cheese.
And whisked eggs (although you could leave them whole, if you like). I found that two eggs fit perfectly into an 8" tortilla with a 1/2" rim.  
Then it's just into the oven at 425 for about 5 minutes, fold it over and ta-da. 
It even gets a little brown and crispy on the bottom, good times. 
So easy, so quick and you can make as many as your oven holds at the same time, so it's perfect for a fast breakfast. Well, even one would be perfect for a fast breakfast, but I think you know what I mean. 
Anyway, I'm off to do things that don't involve food or cats and therefore have no place here. Heh.

A Few Things, Plus Some Stuff

So I've done a few things lately, plus I have some stuff my brother made that I really need to post. But am I actually doing that?


Instead I'm just going to put up a few random pics, taunt the internet with a lack of recipes and then go play Ghost Master all day.

In that spirit, meatballs in a ninja turtle?

Yep. But what could they be for? Or are they ready already? Who knows?

Remember that pot roast I wrote about a while ago? Here it is!

 It was wicked good, the whole meal done in one pot. Remind me to tell you the recipe some time.

This was breakfast today. As you can see there's eggs, a tortilla and cheese.
 It's wicked easy too, you could even make a bunch all at once for a group of people. Yeah, it doesn't get much better than quick, easy and delicious.

Anyway,  right now I'm making this.
 I can't tell you how it turns out since I'm not yet at that moment in time. But so far so good, at least it smells great. Heh. Hopefully I'll get good shots of it and will be able to post it sometime. In fact, I should probably be tending it instead of blogging...
