Derek and I have officially been engaged for a week, and wedding thoughts are slowly creeping into my thoughts and maybe even my dreams! I am excited, a tad overwhelmed and feel like I have no idea where to even begin! But it is exciting, and I want to enjoy every minute of wedding planning! I have found that this past week was a bit of a whirlwind and a bit of a blur! I feel as though I was walking with my head in the clouds, I guess you could say I was and still am on cloud 9 at the thought of our engagement! I have found that I have been gravitating towards easy and simple meals, pulling odd things together and reconnecting with some old favorites in the food world! Like these veggie packed quesadillas! I whipped these up for Derek and I Friday night before hunkered down on the couch for a movie night! These quesadilla are a healthy spin on my old favorite, adding in plenty of veggies, and spicy bold flavor punch from the pepper jack and feta cheese! I cooked mine up in my George Forman, but you could easily whip these up in a skillet on the stove! Sub in any veggies you like, serve with sour cream, and your favorite salsa!
