Squash Quesadilla is on the menu

Sqaush as a main dishHey Loves…Happy Tuesday. I missed posting yesterday, because my apple needed a little Dr. visit. She’s back and I’m at it again with a little something for the menu.

On Sunday Brad and I stopped in the Rancho Santa Fe farmers market. I was in the mood for stuffed squash blossoms, but none of the vendors had them. We found what ended up being a great alternative, little petite squash. We also came home with a fab find, Gen 7 Wine sparkling pomegranate and rosemary jelly. This jelly is Awesome and gave our salsa a perfect sweet hint of champagne.

I love it when Brad is in the mood to put on music, make me a margarita and get his sweet little butt cooking in the kitchen. I sat on my tuf-fit sipping my margarita and snapped pictures…until it was time for another margarita. Snap-snap and Cheers!

The recipe is below, smooches xoxo
