    You really can’t go wrong with vegetable-filled quesadillas. These look especially delicious with your homemade tortillas!

    Heidi, you ARE a “totally awesome” Mom! And who cares if you don’t get 100% of that chores list done today, there is always tomorrow! Oh and if your hubby can’t get the transformer figured out, tell my nephew he has to bug his “Uncle O” to show him how its done… out of the boys in our family, my hubby was the transformer nut.

    That Quesadilla looks fabulous! I’m going to have to try to make some homemade tortillas to make this with though, because store bought ones are gross.

      Aw thanks, haha. Yep there’s always tomorrow. Quite a few things got bumped till tomorrow, but at least I got all the important things done.

      Haha, I quickly figured out that they weren’t Evans’ thing. I got it more figured out than he did. Oh well, at least it’s fun just as a car for now. Maybe in 5 years Verne will be able to do it himself, LOL.

      I know what you mean :( It’s impossible to find good ones. If you have a hard time with the tortillas you can always come over sometime and I can help :D

        Ok, I will most likely take you up on the help factor. I think I’m going to try to make them tonight, but if I totally screw it up, I know there are other things to eat in the house… and then I can know where I actually need the help!

        Next time there is a family dinner, bring his transformer and Olin says that he will help Verne figure it out… Evan just destroyed Olin’s transformers as a child lol.

    Man, this makes me want to challenge myself to up my quesadilla game! Usually I’m a lazy “cheese and tortilla” gal, but these veggie quesadillas seem like the way to go. And so great that your son is into them too.

    Oh and that thrift store sounds amazing. I’m unfortunately in a city with a lot of hipsters so all of our thrift stores are sooooo overpriced and picked over. I have to drive into the suburbs to get the good deals!

      Go for it! You really can put anything in them. But no worries, sometimes we just go for the plain cheese and tortilla kind too :D

      I know what you mean! Some stores just have crazy prices, especially for used stuff. Antiques I can see, but just used stuff, not so much.

    These look delicious, I never think to add that variety of veggies to quesadillas when I make them. Yay for good buys at the second hand store!

    This is such a great staple meal to have when short on time. You can throw about anything into quesadillas :) Yum!!

    These look great! I have also been making a lot of quesadillas lately. In India we make these whole wheat flat breads called ‘chapatti’ which is what i use! i always have some dough int he refrigerator and can make a few chappatis in minutes!

      I never knew I could keep the dough in the fridge to use at any time. I’ll have to try that out, thank you!

    Your quesadillas have inspired me to make some, as well!

    Thrift stores are the best, aren’t they? Hmmm, better adding that to my to do list…

      They really are! You never know what you’re going to find :D

    Oh My! Heidi, these quesadillas are absolutely fantastic. I’m right there with your son – fill them up with “anything” and I’ll eat them. Yours are finger-licking good-looking.
    I totally relate to your second hand store quirk. I, too, cannot pass a cute little dish for the pictures to take with. It’s an addiction, my friend, harmless enough, if you have enough storage in your home.
    The summer has arrived to the Lower Mainland, but is visiting only shortly, for two days apparently, then it’s back to the regular gloom.
    Thanks for the words of encouragement, I appreciated them very much. Soon enough I’ll be in Phoenix, and will have plenty of home-made quesadillas myself with tonnes of sunshine to boot.
    Where in the BC southern interior are you? I’m in Surrey, BC.

      Thank you! I agree, and I do love buying dishes but I’m running out of room already! I think I’ll have to find more room because I don’t think I can stop and eventually, buying one at a time, they’ll pile up!
      I think our weather is going to be the same. We’ve had a couple very hot days now and after today I think we’re back to rain and thunderstorms which is so weird for this time of year. I hope my garden will keep growing even though it’s been slow so far.
      I guess we’re actually more in the south eastern part of BC in a small town called Creston, it’s an hour west of Cranbrook. I actually grew up just across the bridge from Surrey in Coquitlam :)
      Thank you for stopping by!
