Back in the saddle

FOODY FRIDAY! I miss it, do you? Tell me you do.

Lets start 'er up again this week.

With school starting (both for our kids and for Matt and I as teachers), the schedule around here is looking a little daunting... and I'm a little afraid we're going to be resorting to chicken nuggets and hot dogs and mac and cheese alllllll too often.

So the theme this week will be quick and healthy meals. Meals that can be thrown together made in a limited amount of time, say 20 minutes or less.

Great topic. Even though I rarely play, I always love reading Foody Friday.

I didn't know you taught. What do you teach? Busy family!

I haven't played, but I enjoy reading about Foody Fridays. I might have to participate this week, because I enjoy coming up with quick meals. Yay for Foody Friday!

Alright, so I'm a few hours early for foody friday, but I don't want to forget!

Veggie Quesadillas

sliced veggies - peppers, onions, mushrooms
black beans - drained and rinsed
sliced green onions
white cheddar cheese or pepperjack
hot sauce
whole grain tortilla wraps
salsa & sour cream for toppings

1. saute chopped veggies (peppers, onions, mushrooms...whatever veggies you've got or like)
2. assemble quesadilla - sauteed veggies, black beans, sliced green onions, desired amount of hot sauce & cheese.
3. cook quesadilla in skillet or in George Foreman grill.
4. garnish with salsa & sour cream if desired.

***if you have leftover grilled chicken, throw it in for a little extra protein

Definitely will be back to visit for this. Now that I am into the swing of homeschooling my two youngest, I need something quick, easy and healthy!
