I have been all about the quick and easy meals this week and last night was no exception, especially after allowing myself to be tortured by my Wednesday-night workout “Core & More”. Usually I double up and also take spin class after that, but decided not to this week. All I wanted was food in my belly and to not move for as long as possible.

Ingredients to make chicken bacon avocado quesadillas.

This this cheesy chicken bacon avocado quesadilla worked out quite well. I whipped up these quesadillas and dinner was served and digesting in my belly before I knew it. Although I was tempted to slather some ranch dressing on it, I resisted because it was excellent without. Then I curled up in a blanket with the current book I am reading (Drangonfly in Amber from the Outlander series) until Brent was online and able to video chat.

Apparently he is upset I made homemade Tagalongs (a sweet he will actually eat a lot of) while he is out of the country. I wanted to scold him by saying “that’s what you get for going to Costa Rica/Panama for two weeks without me”, but of course I caved and admitted I was saving some for his return. I’m too nice. But back to the current food item…
