Sweet and Tart

It’s Handmade Monday!  And of course, I’m running late.  I keep promising myself I will do a couple of blogs and save them and just be able to pop them up Sunday night and be good to go, but no, I get so excited when I have something I can’t resist posting it right then, so I never have anything made ahead.  

The problem with making a blog post (for me anyway) is that it’s not just a matter of typing a few words and tossing it online.  I have to take photos while I make it, and then I spend quite a bit of time getting the photos just right.  Sometimes writing it out takes me awhile.  And in the meantime sometimes I just get distracted by other things.  I wonder if other bloggers have the same problem?  And how on earth to people with small children ever get anything like this done?

Well, anyway, I was planning something completely different, but even tho my wonderful husband spent all day Saturday taking me all over we could not find one important ingredient, which I finally had to order online.  So, if it gets here in time, I will make that for next week.  But I was scrambling for something for this week, and fortunately Jeff had found a wonderful recipe for Limeade, and he suggested we try that.  It’s pretty simple, but it really IS awesome!

I’ll stop babbling now and share this easy and tangy Brazilian Lemonade.  BTW I don’t know why it’s called lemonade, it’s made with limes!

Quesadillas for Lunch!

I had never heard of quesadillas when I married my husband, but his Mom made them all the time.  They were a revelation to me because they were easy, they were tasty, they were made out of ingredients I almost always had on hand and the boys (and Jeff!) would eat them!  Even better, you could vary what you put in them to suit different palates!  Voila!  The perfect food!  All the years I made them I used flour tortillas, but since I have recently discovered I can’t eat wheat I have also discovered the joys of corn tortillas. So, while today’s version will be with corn, feel free to use wheat tortillas instead.  In fact, I’m sure the wheat version will be more popular.  But for those of you who want something a little different, or who can’t have wheat, try these!  I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
