Spinach and Artichoke Quesadillas

What a sunny week we’ve had out here!  Huzzah!  The past few days have been filled with outdoor games, swimming, and trips to the park!  Delightful times!

I even had a little time to practice my cookie skills!  Here’s a fox that I did!

Royal Icing Fox Cookie

Anyways, here is what went down in my kitchen for lunch the other day.  Spinach and Artichoke Quesadillas!  I have been wanting to concoct this recipe for awhile and finally got around to doing it.  It was absolutely delicious!!!  One thing I loved was the fact that it is decent on calories if you substitute reduced fat ingredients!  It’s stuffed with spinach and artichoke which makes it a filling meal!  These would go great with a prickly pear margarita!  😀 😀

This recipe will be making a regular appearance in our household each month!  Yum!  Try it out!
