• The Best Thing I Ever Ate

    June 29, 2012

    You guys have seen that show The Best Thing I Ever Ate, right? Well, last night’s dinner might just be one of the best things I have ever ate. For real.

    Dinner

    Last night’s dinner was Sweet Potato Quesadillas. Oooh, yes, it was.

    Ingredients: a whole wheat wrap, mashed Sweet Potato Wedges, black beans, Laughing Cow cheese, and fresh or frozen chopped spinach or kale.

    Directions: Spread mashed sweet potato over half of the wrap, add beans, cheese, and chopped kale, fold over wrap, and then press quesadilla in a panini press until cheese is fully melted. Allow to cool slightly and then cut into four pieces. Eat and enjoy!

    Holy yum x 100!!

    Mal also really loved this dinner. After taking his first bite of Sweet Potato Quesadilla, he simply said: “amazing.” I totally agree.

    We’re out of sweet potatoes, but I’m seriously thinking about taking a trip to the grocery store just to buy them so I can make a Sweet Potato Quesadilla for dinner again tonight. I’m telling ya, it was that delicious! Oh, yea, and super simple to make. I love that too!

    After dinner, I enjoyed a little sweet treat of dried peaches, almonds, and white chocolate chips.

    Breakfast

    Mal was in the mood for pancakes this morning, so I whipped up a batch of OMG Pancakes for the two of us. I added Teddie Peanut Butter and fresh blueberries to mine.

    Question of the Day

    What was the best thing you ever ate?

    I couldn’t name just one, so I made a list:

    It’s kind of funny that 3 out of the 5 things I thought of were sandwiches. I guess I’m a bigger sandwich fan that I thought I was!

    I’ve always wanted to put mashed sweet potatoes in a wrap…this is even better! Plus I love the combo of sweet potatoes and black beans. Looks delicious!

    I made a sweet potato quesadilla yesterday after reading about it here – it is DIVINE. I was so excited to have extras to make another one today. Yum! I made a few small changes…didn’t have kale on hand, so I subbed fresh spinach. I didn’t make the fries, so just threw a sweet potato in the microwave, then just mashed it up (I’ll add some of your seasonings to the potato next time to give it more flavor!). I had some cilantro, so threw that in too. Sooooo good – thanks for the great recipe!
