Ahhhh....Welcome Fall!

It hardly seems like Fall is near the weather here was in the 90's today, phew. I've been at work today but the few times I left my office I felt the heat.....I'll miss summer. The boys just love swimming and watching mom cook some hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill, and making my huge batches of lemonade. The boys start Fall Ball - tonight is their first practice, can't wait to watch them play. Games will be on Saturdays, grandma and grandpa love to come and watch! I'm shopping for mums this weekend, so I'll post some pictures once I get the house decorated for Fall. Everyone have a good evening and thanks for dropping in.

Yummy Chorizo Quesadillas!

Today is where my blog begins. I love the Midwest because of the changing of the seasons. Can't really imagine living anyplace else.... This morning I spent a little while browsing through my magazines looking for some hearty recipes as I sipped my morning cup of coffee....in search of a recipe to share with my friends. Instead I thought that I can share a little of my Mexican heritage with all of you. So, I'll share one of our easy snacks that my kids enjoy, and I think you will too.

Chorizo Quesadillas:

1 package of flour torillas
1 can of refried beans with chorizo flavor
1 small block of muenster or brick cheese

Warm the beans in a skillet and with a spreading knife, coat one side of one tortilla with the refried beans, then layer thin slices of cheese on the beans, top with a single tortilla and cook on a hot griddle or skillet, turning every couple of minutes, until the tortilla looks slightly toasted and the cheese is melted. It should take about 2 minutes per side. Slice the quesadilla with a pizza cutter or knife. Serve on a plate with a spoonful of salsa or sour cream. Enjoy!
