In college, my friend Katey and I often used to hit up the dining hall a little after 5 o’clock for dinner””mostly because we wanted to avoid the crowds, but also because we were old ladies, who enjoyed the early bird special. Nearly a decade later (seriously, how is my 10-year college reunion this May!?), I’m still a big fan of the early bird special.
On the menu for dinner last night: Make-Your-Own Quesadillas.
In the mix: whole wheat tortillas, shredded cheddar cheese.
Red and green bell pepper, tomatoes, cabbage, and chicken.
I added a little of everything (and a lot of cheese) to my quesadilla.
Yummmmmm! I have to admit the cabbage was sort of a weird addition to my quesadilla. I actually ended up picking it out because it just didn’t jive with the other flavors. Oh, well, it was still fun to give it a try!
By 5:34 PM, I was sitting down to dinner and Bethenny Ever After. Hooray for the early bird special!
After dinner, I enjoyed a piece of toast with sunflower butter and butterscotch chips for dessert.
