Sunday Night Supper

We’ve been working on bettering our “inside” task here at the Weir household..i.e Bowen’s been helping me when he can with things like cleaning up the kitchen, sweeping etc. Now that the cookie business has become full time, a girl needs a little help, right? Bowen is a master at 2 things inside: cleaning our shower with his boat brush and making Nora’s quesadillas. 

IMG_0938Nobody makes a better quesadilla than Bowen. He says Nora can ( the Weir’s housekeeper of more than 30 years i.e second mom) but I’ve yet to taste her’s (can you believe it Beck?)

We are also  trying to eat more wholesome at our house. I would say 75% of the time we eat “whole” foods but when the weekend rolls around we find ourselves eating out more times than not. I hate this because with Bowen on the road so much we need to be using our time at home to fill ourselves with whole foods. OKAY back to the recipe…

*serves 1
  1. 1 Ezekiel brand sprouted grain tortilla*
  2. 2 chicken tenders, grilled and sliced
  3. 1 red/green bell pepper, sliced thin
  4. 1/2 tsp cumin
  5. 1/2 tsp chili powder
  6. 1/4 onion, sliced thin
  7. 2 T monterey jack cheese
  8. 1/2 avocado, sliced
  9. salsa of your choosing
  10. smart balance butter
  11. side salad: 1 cup romaine
  12. 1 carrot, sliced
  13. sautéed peppers and onions
  14. 2 T ponchos vinaigrette (the Weir's bring us ponchos and rendezvous overtime they visit but you can order online!)
Instructions
  1. Grill or saute chicken tenders seasoned with kosher salt, cracked pepper, cumin and chili powder then set aside. Sauté onions and bell peppers together until soft and slightly charred, set aside. Heat skillet until warm over medium high heat, add smart balance and tortilla, let the tortilla crisp up (Bowen says this is key), then butter the top and flip tortilla. Next, place sliced chicken, peppers and onions, cheese and avocado on tortilla and quickly fold and FLIP. We then use a bacon press to hold down quesadilla until cheese is melted. Serve with side salad 🙂
  2. *Bowen makes his using flour tortillas and lots of cheese, this is my portion:)
  3. *Ezekiel sprouted grain tortillas are a great alternative to flour tortillas, they are a complete source of protein, contain 18 amino acids, help with increased digestibility, increased absorption of minerals, they are organic and use absolutely no flour or refined sugars!!

Daily update: Last night’s supper really helped fuel me for today’s long run. I ran a LONG 9 miles this am–Bowen did three with me which helped ALOT 🙂 We are currently en route to New Orleans to stay the night, I brought my camera so stay tuned for a NOLA blog post!
