A quesadilla is a heated tortilla with melted cheese inside. But in addition to cheese, you can put practically anything in a quesadilla.
My favorites are mushrooms, olives, tomatoes, and onions. I don’t cook these ingredients first, but it really is a matter of taste. You could if you wanted to.
Traditionally in Mexico quesadillas are made with corn tortillas, not wheat flour tortillas, and a melty white cheese.
Here in the states though, because of how close we are to the Sonoran area of northern Mexico, quesadillas are more often made with flour tortillas. We like to get the flour tortillas lightly toasted because it improves the flavor.

Quesadilla Recipe
  • Prep time: 5 minutes
  • Cook time: 5 minutes
INGREDIENTS
  • Large flour tortillas
  • Grated cheese - either mild or sharp cheddar, or Monterey Jack
  • Olive oil or butter
Optional:
  • Sliced mushrooms
  • Green onions
  • Black olives, sliced
  • Fresh tomatoes, diced
  • Chicken pieces
  • Avocado
  • Lettuce
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Salt

METHODHIDE PHOTOS
1 Heat the tortillas until air pockets form: Heat a large skillet (cast iron works great) on medium high heat. Add a small amount of oil (about 1/2 teaspoon) and spread it around the bottom of the pan with a spatula (you could use butter as well).
Take one large flour tortilla and place it in the pan. Flip the tortilla over a few times, 10 seconds between flips. Air pockets should begin to form within the tortilla.

2 Add cheese and other ingredients: When pockets of air begin to form, take a handful of grated cheese, sprinkle over the top of the tortilla, making sure that the cheese does not land on the pan itself.

Add whatever additional ingredients you choose - green onion, sliced mushrooms, olives, tomatoes, etc. If you would like your quesadilla to be a chicken quesadilla, add some diced cooked chicken.
Take care not to layer on the ingredients to thickly - this is a quesadilla, not a quiche!
3 Lower heat and cover pan: Reduce the heat to low and cover the pan. The pan should be hot enough by now to have plenty of residual heat to melt the cheese and brown the tortilla. If the quesadilla begins to smoke too much, remove from the heat.

After a minute, check to see if the cheese is melted. If not, return the cover and keep checking every minute until the cheese is melted.
4 Fold tortilla over: When the cheese is sufficiently melted, use a spatula to lift up one side of the quesadilla and flip over the other side, as if you were making an omelette.

The tortilla should by now be browned slightly. If it is not browned, turn the heat up to high and flip the quesadilla over every 10 seconds or so until it gets browned.
5 Remove quesadilla from pan and cut into wedges.
To make the lettuce to accompany the quesadilla, thinly slice some iceberg lettuce. Sprinkle some cider vinegar on it and some salt.
Serve with the lettuce, salsa, sour cream, and guacamole.

How to Make Yourself Poop
If you buy something through a link on this page, we may earn a small commission. How this works.
Overview
Your exercise and eating habits, age, gender, and health status all affect the number of bowel movements you experience in a given day. While there is no set number of bowel movements a person should have, it’s abnormal and possibly dangerous to go three or fewer times per week.
Often, constipation causes bowel movements that are not only infrequent, but also hard and difficult to pass. This leads to excessive straining and time spent on the toilet.
The causes of constipation vary. The condition may simply be due to such as things as dehydration or eating foods with too little fiber. In other, more serious cases, constipation can be the result of stress, hormonal changes, spinal injuries, muscle problems, cancers, and other structural problems affecting the digestive tract.
Quick ways to make yourself poop

The following quick treatments can help induce a bowel movement in a few hours.
1. Take a fiber supplement
Fiber supplements are readily available and effective at inducing bowel movements if a low-fiber diet is the cause of your constipation. They work by adding bulk, or volume, to your stool. This helps push stool through your intestines and out of your body.
You can buy fiber supplements on Amazon. Here are a few common ones:
  • calcium polycarvophil (FiberCon)
  • psyllium (Metamucil, Konsyl)
  • methylcellulose (Citrucel)
2. Eat a serving of high-fiber food
Try these foods that are high in fiber:
  • oats
  • whole-grain bread or cereal
  • fibrous veggies and fruits
  • rice and beans
Be sure to drink lots of water with these foods, as it will further help push your stool through your system.
3. Drink a glass of water
Proper hydration — typically at least eight 8-ounce glasses of clear liquid per day — is necessary for normal bowel movements. If you’re constipated and haven’t been drinking an adequate amount of water, consuming a large glass of water or other clear liquid may trigger a bowel movement.
4. Take a laxative stimulant
Laxative stimulants are designed to force a bowel movement by squeezing the intestines. You can get stimulants over the counter at your local pharmacy. Some popular options include:
  • bisacodyl (Dulcolax, Ducodyl, Correctol)
  • senna-sennosides (Senokot)
5. Take an osmotic
Osmotic laxatives work slightly differently than stimulant laxatives. They’re designed to help move fluids through the colon. Some examples include:
  • magnesium hydroxide (Phillips Milk of Magnesia)
  • polyethylene glycol (MiraLAX)
  • magnesium citrate
  • lactulose (Kristalose)
With a doctor’s prescription, you can obtain higher-strength polyethylene glycol, also called PEG (Golytely, Nulytely).
6. Try a lubricant laxative
Lubricant laxatives such as mineral oil add a slick coat to your intestine’s walls, allowing stool to move through your colon and out of your body more easily. Take mineral oil no more than two hours after your evening meal. Expect results within six to eight hours.
7. Use a stool softener
One common cause of constipation is dehydration, which can cause hard stool. Using a stool softener, such as docusate sodium (Colace) or docusate calcium (Surfak), can moisten the stool by pulling water from your intestines. This allows the stool to exit your body more easily.
8. Try an enema
There are several types of enemas that you can try. Enemas work by softening stool enough to produce a bowel movement. Some common types of enemas include sodium phosphate (Fleet), soapsuds, and tap water enemas. Learn about proper ways to administer an enema.
9. Try a suppository
Rectal suppositories also help encourage bowel movements by softening stool. Try a glycerin or bisacodyl suppository, which you can find at your local pharmacy.
10. Get in a squat position to poop
Bring a small footstool into your bathroom the next time you need to poop. Placing your feet on a stool in front of the toilet while you poop — so your body is essentially in a squatting position instead of in a seated position —can help you pass stool without straining.
11. Get some exercise
Light exercise, such as walking or jogging, can encourage bowel movements by increasing blood flow throughout your abdomen.
12. Try colonic massage
Massaging the colon can help stimulate the bowels.

Lifestyle changes that can help you poop

The above advice can help encourage a quick bowel movement to relieve short-term discomfort. However, some of the lifestyle changes can also keep your constipation at bay more permanently. For regularity, try to make these tips part of your daily habit.
  • Add more fiber to your diet, with fresh fruits and vegetables, legumes, beans, and whole grains. You should consume at least 14 grams of fiber per day for every 1,000 calories in your diet. If you need to take a fiber supplement for chronic constipation, start with a low dose and increase as tolerated. For some people, a large amount of fiber can lead to bloating.
  • Exercise most days of the week with a daily walk, jog, bike ride, swim, or other form of exercise. Light exercise helps maintain proper circulation and can keep the bowels healthy.
  • Consume plenty of liquids — mostly water and other clear liquids — every day. Aim for at least eight 8-ounce glasses of clear liquids per day.
  • Manage your stress.
  • Never “hold in” your stool.

Chav
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



Jump to navigationJump to search
Not to be confused with Chad (slang).
"Chav" (/tʃæv/), also "charver" and "scally" in parts of Northern England, is a British pejorative term used to describe an anti-social lower-class youth dressed in sportswear.[1][2][3][4] "Chavette" has been used to refer to a female chav,[5] and the adjectives "chavvy", "chavvish", and "chavtastic" have been used in relation to items designed for or suitable for use by chavs.[6] In Ireland, "skanger" is used in a similar way.[7]
A new group branching off of the chav subculture has emerged recently and are now commonly known as "roadmen".[8] Roadmen (singular: "Roadman") are often compared to chavs with similar behavior patterns and the usage of Jamaican patois and Multicultural London English slang in common oral communications, however the usage of jewelry is rare in most cases, on the other hand, sports apparel such as puffer jackets and track-pants are still worn but mostly in shaded colouring, such as dark blue/red or even black. A common stereotype would be that roadmen often engage in criminal activities and that roadmen are aggressive when provoked.

Etymology
Opinion is divided on the origin of the term. "Chav" may have its origins in the Romani word "chavi", meaning "child".[6][9] The word "chavvy" has existed since at least the 19th century; lexicographer Eric Partridge mentions it in his 1950 dictionary of slang and unconventional English, giving its date of origin as c. 1860.[10]
The word in its current pejorative usage is recorded by the Oxford English Dictionary as first used in a Usenet forum in 1998 and first used in a newspaper in 2002.[11] By 2005 the term had become widespread in its use as to refer to a type of anti-social, uncultured youth, who wear much flashy jewellery, white trainers, baseball caps, and sham designer clothes; the girls expose much midriff.[3]
In his 2011 book, Chavs: The Demonization of the Working Class, Owen Jones argued that the word is an attack on the poor.[11] In the 2010 book Stab Proof Scarecrows by Lance Manley, it was surmised that "chav" was an abbreviation for "council housed and violent".[12] This is widely regarded as a backronym.[9] This interpretation of the word was used in a 2012 public statement by Rapper Plan B as he spoke out to oppose the use of the term.[13]
In 2013 linguist David Crystal said on BBC Learning English:
People talk about "chav behaviour" or "chav insults" and that sort of thing. Oh, don't believe the popular etymologies that you read sometimes in the press and on websites. I saw one the other day, people said, "It's an acronym, 'chav', from 'council house and violent'"—well, no, it isn't, that was made up in recent times.[3]
Stereotype

Caricature of a chav

Stereotypical image of a chav
Besides referring to loutish behaviour, violence, and particular speech patterns (all of which are stereotypes), the chav stereotype includes wearing branded designer sportswear,[14] which may be accompanied by some form of flashy gold jewellery otherwise termed as "bling".[citation needed] They have been described as adopting "black culture", and use some Jamaican patois in their slang.[15]
In a case where a teenage woman was barred from her own home under the terms of an anti-social behaviour order in 2005, some British national newspapers branded her "the real-life Vicky Pollard" with the Daily Star running headlines reading, "Good riddance to chav scum: real life Vicky Pollard evicted",[16] both referring to a BBC comedy character. Created by radio host Matt Lucas for the show Little Britain, the character Vicky Pollard is a teenage girl intended to parody a chav. A 2006 survey by YouGov suggested 70% of TV industry professionals believed that Vicky Pollard was an accurate reflection of white working-class youth.[11]
Response to the stereotype has ranged from amusement to criticism, with some saying that it is a new manifestation of classism.[17] The Guardian in 2011 identified issues stemming from the use of the terms "hoodies" and "chav" within the mass media, which had led to age discrimination as a result of mass media-created stereotypes.[4]
Commercial effect
In 2005 the fashion house Burberry, whilst deriding chavs, claimed that the widespread fashion in the UK of chavs wearing its branded style (Burberry check) was due to the widespread availability of cheaper counterfeit versions.[citation needed]
The large supermarket chain Asda has attempted to trademark the word "chav" for a line of confectionery. A spokeswoman said, "With slogans from characters in shows such as Little Britain and The Catherine Tate Show providing us with more and more contemporary slang, our "Whatever" sweets – now nicknamed chav hearts – have become very popular with kids and grown-ups alike. We thought we needed to give them some respect and have decided to trademark our sweets."[18]
Criticism of the stereotype
A BBC TV documentary suggested that chav culture is an evolution of previous working-class youth subcultures associated with particular commercial clothing styles, such as mods, skinheads, and casuals.[19]
In a February 2005 article in The Times, Julie Burchill argued that use of the word is a form of "social racism", and that such "sneering" reveals more about the shortcomings of the "chav-haters" than those of their supposed victims.[20] The writer John Harris argued along similar lines in a 2007 article in The Guardian.[21] The widespread use of the "chav" stereotype has been criticised.[22] Some argue that it amounts to simple snobbery and elitism.[17][23] Critics of the term have argued that its users are "neo-snobs",[24] and that its increasing popularity raises questions about how British society deals with social mobility and class.[25]
The Fabian Society considers the term to be offensive and regards it as "sneering and patronising" to a largely voiceless group. On describing those who use the word, the society stated that "we all know their old serviette/napkin, lounge/living room, settee/sofa tricks. But this is something new. This is middle class hatred of the white working class, pure and simple."[2] The Fabian Society have been highly critical of the BBC in using the term in broadcasts.[2][25] Use of the term 'chav' was reported in The Guardian in 2011 as "class abuse by people asserting superiority".[26]
In the media
By 2004, the word was used in national newspapers and common parlance in the UK. Susie Dent's Larpers and Shroomers: The Language Report, published by the Oxford University Press, designated it as the "word of the year"[27] in 2004.[28]
Characters described as "chavs" have been featured in numerous British television programmes, as well as films. The character, clothing, attitude and musical interests of Lauren Cooper and her friends in the BBC comedy series, The Catherine Tate Show, have been associated with the chav stereotype.[29] The comedy series Little Britain features a character intended as a chav parody, Vicky Pollard. In the British television series Misfits, the character of Kelly Bailey is presented as a stereotypical "chav".[30] Lauren Socha, the actress who portrays Kelly, has described the character as being "a bit chavvy".[31] The Times has referred to the character as "[a] chavvish girl",[32] and the character has been said to possess a "chav accent".[33]
In the "New Earth" episode of the BBC TV series Doctor Who, the character Lady Cassandra is transplanted into Rose Tyler's body (Billie Piper). When Cassandra sees herself in a mirror, she exclaims "Oh my God... I'm a chav!"[34] In Kingsman: The Secret Service, the main character Eggsy Unwin (Taron Egerton) is introduced as a stereotypical chav.[35]
