Monday night leftovers...

Leftovers are a beautiful thing....especially when you are in hurry and need to make lunch FAST!! Monday night was crazy busy. It was a special night for my family as we attended the annual celebration of the Lord's Evening Meal at our place of worship. Kids came home from school, and it was like a tornado around our house getting homework done, dinner prepared, and lunches made. Dinner ended up being quick pizza quesadillas which my kids love. I intentionally made a few extra so I could send them in Z's lunch.

My pizzadillas are very easy and quick to make as I serve the marinara sauce on the side instead of layering it on the quesadillas (cuts down on the messiness, too). When I make these, I layer  Monterey Jack cheese, pepperoni slices, mushrooms, and onions and then cook them in a large skillet on medium heat until the cheese is melty goodness, and the tortilla shells have crisped up.

Some of the things, or similar things, that I used to make this lunch:


  1. Isn't it great how leftovers look new when you add a few things and put them in a box? I love using leftovers in my bentos! And this looks super yummy ^_^
