The Perfect Quesadilla


We are always in the market for a quick, easy and good for on the go.  It seems we always have 1000 things going on and I am pulled in all directions.  But a day does not go by without a laugh, for example the littlest one just walked in dressed in a tee shirt and a backpack announcing, "It is free dress day and I am going bottomless!"  It is 8 at night and she is going no where but to bed.  She was just yanking on the oldest's chain when he asked a question she thought was ridiculous.  She is a tiny ball of fire with a quick wit and has just discovered jokes, ugh.  If I hear one more bunny joke...She finally moved on to other animals:  What does a polar bear eat?  Ice burgers [sic] (icebergs)

This recipe from America's Test Kitchen is an all time favorite:
