‘Dillas on the Grillas

The weather warranted another dinner on the grill. Well… kind of.

Ryan and I were feelin’ cheesy quesadillas tonight and figured we could add some protein to the mix by throwing grilled chicken breasts into the ‘dillas.

While Ryan grilled the chicken, I got all the “fixins” (as Paula Deen would say) ready for our quesadillas.

Fixins

Our ‘dillas included:

  • Cheese
  • Corn
  • Grilled chicken
  • Cauliflower
  • Spinach

Ready for Folding

Yum

On the side we had roasted broccoli for some added nutrients.

Ryan and I are working our way through our Easter goodies.

Tonight we both enjoyed two Oreos and a small bowl of Swedish Fish. Yum!

Dessert

Portioning out the goodies in a small bowl helps prevent me from eating a billion Swedish Fish. Sitting down to eat them out of a small dish is a great way to help me thwart overindulgence.  

After dessert, I got to work in the kitchen again.

I promised to bring in a sweet treat for the winner of our March Madness cake vs. pie bracket at work.

Even though red velvet cake lost in the finals, everyone in my office preferred red velvet cake to cheesecake, the actual winner. I decided to make a red velvet dessert to bring into work, but didn’t want to make a big ol’ cake. Instead I made red velvet cake brownies!

They’re currently baking in the oven and smell deeeelicious.

I hope they last through the night… 😉
