Peanut Butter and Jelly Quesadillas and a Call for Guest Posters

Today’s recipe isn’t even really a recipe. Basically, it’s just a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, but it’s made with a flour tortilla instead of bread. It’s one of Andrew’s absolute favorite lunches, and he requests it at least three times a week.

What makes this a little bit more special than a typical PB&J is that it’s warm, so the peanut butter gets all gooey and the jelly starts to melt. It may sound a little bit strange, but it’s actually incredibly delicious. We prefer the classic version for ours, with smooth peanut butter and grape jelly, but crunchy peanut butter and any flavor of jelly or jam would be delicious in this! (Another thing that would delicious in this: Nutella. But of course Nutella in anything is amazing.)

So maybe it’s sort of a cop-out post today, but I really do have a good excuse: I’m off work for the next 10 days! At this point I’m just waiting for 4:30 to arrive. :) It’ll be pretty quiet around here because since I’ve been so busy I haven’t had time to write scheduled posts for next week. If anyone is interested, I’d be more than happy to open up the blog to some guest posts next week! If you’re interested in posting here in my absence, e-mail me at cassiecraves[at]yahoo[dot]com, and I bet we could work something out. :)

I would have never thought to do this! Putting this one in the back of my mind for once we get the kiddos home. But my friends little girl from Ethiopia told me my kids won't like ANY american food when they get here, haha. she said they will only like mangos, bananas and oranges but she promised me she would help me get them to try new things!
