Chicken-Veggie Quesadillas

It's Tuesday and on this evening's menu was Chicken-Veggie Quesadillas with Mexican Tomato Rice.  It was super simple and both kids helped create them.  The quesadillas are stuffed with cheddar, mozzarella, and asiago plus chicken, sliced fresh mushrooms, and diced green, red & yellow peppers.  Christian says "They were awesome!  The chicken was delicious with creamy, ooey-gooey cheese."

The rice was simple too.  A can of tomatoes, a little water, a pinch of cumin and a cup of rice... all thrown into the rice cooker.  All in all, a super quick and easy meal that both kids totally enjoyed.

Aztec Blend

I was at the Bulk Barn last week and decided to try out one of their rice blends. It is Aztec Blend #1656. It includes colusari red rice, long grain brown rice, split peas, and amaranth. I had no idea what some of those ingredients were but figured anything's worth a try, right? When I got home I looked up colusari rice & amaranth. Colusari rice is a burgundy-colored chewy rice that has a light nutty-popcorn-like flavor and amaranth is actually an herb.

It was very simple to prepare & actually pretty good. The peas were a little crunchy which added nice texture. I was surprised that both kids really liked it.

Banna-Nutella Tortilla Wrap

While standing in the grocery store line last week I was flipping through a cooking magazine and came across this idea.  I thought it was the perfect after school surprise for Christian.

First I spread the nutella on a tortilla.

Then I put a peeled banana on it.

Rolled it up...

...and it was ready to eat.

Christian shared it with his little brother and they both gobbled it up.  A little messy... for Alexander especially, but worth it.

Raspberry Picking with Alexander

Two weeks ago we took Alexander raspberry picking.  He dressed up in long sleeves and pants to protect his legs from the raspberry vines and his rainy day boots in hopes of a puddle to splash in.
