Oh dear it has been almost a month since I last made a post. Where did the time go? To be honest I am not surprised. Life has been crazy! After spring break, it was a mad rush to prepare our students for the big state test (which we are in the midst of right now). As a special education teacher, it is also IEP season. IEP’s are individualized education programs that we write for each individual student that we work with. This consist of a document anywhere from 12 to 20 pages long. Needless to say, extra typing/writing has not really been an option for me. But it is winding down and I found a brief moment (Avery is in bed and the husband is watching basketball) to put some thoughts down on paper…. err… screen. Here are a few fun things I did on my oh so brief but wonderful spring break.
We went to our local zoo and had a picnic lunch and got our fill of the beautiful sunshine. Too bad it wasn’t warmer that day!
Avery up close and personal with the fishes!
My sister and nephew came over one evening and we went for a walk. The cousins loved to hold hands!
That’s my girl! Way to be a leader!
The next day had no sun and was just ugly so Avery and I made our own sun! Makes you smile right!
For dinner we had pizza quesadillas. These are seriously simple and delicious! Need a quick weeknight meal. This is a real winner!
Here’s what you need:
whole wheat tortillas
2 cups of cheese of choice: we mixed what we had on hand
1/4 lb pepperoni
can of pizza sauce
Here’s what you do:
Spread a thin layer of sauce on eight tortillas (this will make 4 quesadillas). On 4 of the tortillas, layer cheese and pepperoni. You can do as much or as little as you like. I did about 1/2 cup for cheese on each and then just spread out the pepperoni as I liked. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Layer on a tortilla over filling side to create a quesadilla like sandwich. Place the “sandwich” into the heated skillet and heat through to lightly brown the outside and melt the cheese. I did not use butter in the skillet. Figured I would save some calories. Serve immediately! Told ya quick and easy :).
Well I hope you have been having a wonderful month!
Go and Create!
