If you have ever lived in the south you know that it rarely snows. When the weather channel predicts even the smallest dusting of snow, it seems that everyone and their brother heads to the store to buy bread and milk in order to survive the impending doom. So when I discovered that we were out of bread, and that the weather was predicting two inches of snow, I knew better than to even attempt to purchase bread. We had to get a little creative with our lunch sandwiches.
Instead of traditional peanut butter and jelly sandwiches we made up some peanut butter and jelly quesadillas.
My thought process was simple. Tortillas are like bread. I have no bread. I have tortillas. Melted peanut butter is scrumptious. It was that easy.
The assembly was also simple. First I spread some peanut butter onto the tortillas. Next I added small amounts of strawberry jelly.
Because I was feeling saucy, I added small slices of bananas, and a few chocolate chips. Fold the quesadillas in half and cook just like you would any other quesadilla.
My kids thought these were so tasty that they continue to ask for them. We have even whipped them up for breakfast a few times. And I will tell you, any time my kids eat, and enjoy it this much it is a godsend.
