As Summer begins to wind down, I’ve already begun to focus my attention on back to school. That means combining busy afternoons with homework, after school activities and sports with trying to fit in time for cooking so the kids can eat before we head out to whatever activities we have going on. With busy nights like this, I can’t spend hours in the kitchen cooking. Instead I stock up on everything I need for easy dinners from Walmart.

It’s easy to make, ready in under 30-minutes and it’s something the whole family will love.

I love quesadillas, well just about all Mexican food. One thimg I will not ever put in a recipe though is Fennel or Cilantro. Cilantro is the most vile tasting leaf I have ever tasted. And anything that tastes like licorice is the second!
