Chicken Quesadillas

May 22, 2018 in dinner - No Comments

 As you mostly likely know, cheese quesadillas are one of the quickest, easiest meals to make.  They are also probably one of the least nutritious.  However, cook up some chicken and add veggies, and you have yourself a healthier, more satisfying meal. My dad used to make these for dinner…

I have a little garden.  Since our house is surrounded by three 100-year-old maple trees, we don’t have as much sunlight as I would like.  But I still have a little, raised-bed garden in our backyard and it makes me happy.  In it, I usually grow four small tomato plants…
