Happy Monday!

We’ve had a bit of an unusual run of dreary days in Colorado lately, but yesterday the sun finally came out yesterday and it was the best. I got outside and did some yardwork – something I’ve only just recently discovered that I actually like.

Since we’ve moved into our new house, our first house, I’ve been getting out into the yard a bit to try to clean it up. It’s been in pretty rough shape – lots of dead leaves and dead branches, lots of exposed dirt and patchy grass. Slowly working on cleaning it up has been surprisingly therapeutic, but I’d also realized how much time it takes to take care of an entire yard! There are so many projects I want to work on, some feasible, some not. But for now I’m chipping away at it bit by bit and enjoying watching things sprout up and bushes and trees begin to turn green again.

This quesadilla recipes I’ve made a few times this week after hankering for a quesadilla and finding we were completely out of cheddar cheese. I found some leftover swiss and onions which made for a delicious quesadilla, but the sautéed mushrooms really brings this up another notch!

The mushrooms and onions are soft and savory and they complement the swiss neatly. Sandwiched in a crispy, toasted tortilla, the textures marry perfectly and the whole package is absolutely yummy!
