Last Night’s Snack

Brandon loves cheese. Grated yellow cheese. He also likes cheese roll ups. You know what I mean…cheese in a tortilla, microwaved to melt the cheese, roll it up, and then eat. I will not make cheese roll ups for Brandon as he seems to choke more when he eats them. I hate it when he chokes and I have to do abdominal thrusts. It is scary and I try to avoid it if I possibly can.

He will, however, eat cheese quesadillas. I offered that choice to Brandon last night and he agreed. I have made hundreds of cheese quesadillas over the years for this child. I like to think I am pretty good at it.

Brandon helped me get the ingredients out and I proceeded to cook. This is what it looked like when I got done.

I have never burned one of these. I told Brandon I would make another one and that he would not liked the burned mess I made. I set the burned one aside and prepared a new one that was perfect.

He kept pointing to the burned one saying “hot”. I kept saying “burned” and handed him the one that wasn’t burned.

He insisted he wanted the “hot” one, so I gave it to him.

As you can see, he ate the burned one. Brandon ate one piece from the perfect one. Steve and I helped ourselves to the “good one”.

He ate the whole thing. Burned parts and all. Anyone else like their quesadillas burned to a crisp?

    Oh wow! He’s a char-broiled man! I heard there are people who prefer hot dogs that way too…like with a shell of char on it! 😲

      Brandon hates his hot dogs cooked over an open flame. He will only eat them if the are cooked in the microwave or in a pot of water. And they have to have cheese on them!

        I agree with him on the cheeese 😂! I feel like flamed hot dogs will inevitably always taste like the bottom of the grill.

    My husband does! My husband was diagnosed with ADHD in 1989 when he was in high school, but we feel with the same diagnostic tools of today – with all of his sensory issues, developmental history and such, he would be given a ASD diagnosis as well. Anyway – everything for him has to be burnt. Smells so bad, I can’t imagine it tastes good, but he loves his toast and bagels burnt. Definitely a unique taste!
