Quesadillas and peanut butter with bananas

So it was pouring rain all morning and the kids asked for grilled cheese for the umpteenth time this week. I was loathed to oblige because I was in a rainy day gloomy mood. So I improvised. Pulled out the tortilla shells and freshly shredded some cheese and whipped them up a pan grilled quesadilla. I cut it in half and each half into 3 and the ate it up. They also wanted banana slices instead of just a half. then they got cookie cutter shaped bread smeared with peanut butter for a little protein.

Neither of them wanted the peanut butter bread, but they ate it anyway.

Then we stayed at Nephew's house and made dinner for Elizabeth and her family again too (Husband joined us after he got off work). I made Teriyaki chicken, with a recipe I found on BeyondKimchee. Her food looks divine, and I am so glad I tried this recipe. I used chicken breasts instead of legs, because that's what's preferred in our family, so you work with what works for you..right? Right! It came out so good. Mine didn't look quite as pretty as the pictures on her blog, but it was yummy, and now it's my favorite teriyaki recipe.

Happy blogging!
