Try-it Tuesday: Black and Blue Quesadillas

In lieu of my husband absence, due to a engineering convention in Orlando, we will be trying this recipe on Thursday. To keep with tradition I will post the recipe today.

Black and Blue Quesadilla 
2 (15oz. cans) black beans drained and rinsed
1tsp. Tabasco sauce
2tsp. cumin
Shredded Monterrey Jack cheese
Blue cheese or Gorgonzola  cheese crumbles
8 wheat tortillas
1 red pepper diced

In a bowl mix beans, Tabasco, and cumin. Spray skillet with cooking spray and turn stove on medium low heat. Add a layer of both cheeses, a layer of bean mixture, diced red pepper, and another layer of cheeses. Cover with tortilla and cook for 1-2min. Then flip and cook for another 2min. 

Sounds yummy! I will let you know how it turns out next week.

Beachside Blogging

On this rainy Friday morning, we wait for the sun to shine on our last day at the beach. We have spent most of our time on the beach. AK loved the sand and sun! We built sand castles, body surfed, caught sand fiddlers, collected seashells, and made a sand cast of AK's footprints.

Right before AK put a fistful of sand in her mouth. 

Daddy daughter time!

Turtle sculpture...

Drip castle

Sand cast of AK footprint made with plaster of paris. 

Well as the clouds pass and the rain dies down we will see what adventures our last day here has in store for us...
See you later!
