I don’t know about you, but I have a really hard time figuring out dinner ideas when my hubby’s not around at dinner time! I’m not a meat-and-potatoes kind of girl; just give me a piece of chocolate, call it dinner, and I’m one happy momma! But I know as a mom I’m really not supposed to feed my kids chocolate for dinner . . . so this was a great alternative . As I contemplated what on earth to feed my rowdy bunch before soccer and baseball practice, I decided to try these out (I think I’d been looking over the Publix deals WAAAAYYYY too long and couldn’t see anything besides BOGO Peter Pan and Taco Kits!) I really couldn’t believe how good these were, and a great quick dinner on a busy weeknight!
Here’s what you’ll need (per quesadilla) . . .
1 fajita shell
Taco Bell Home Originals Dinner BOGO $2.69 (I keep grabbing these on sale and then using up the tortillas – I have six packages of taco seasoning and salsa in my pantry because I’ve stolen the tortillas for other recipes!); or $1/1 Mission Tortillas 8/1/2010 SS Insert (exp 9/13/2010)
1 1/2 – 2 tablespoons peanut butter
Peter Pan Peanut butter 13-16.3oz jar BOGO $2.09, $1.50/4 ConAgra Foods Products, $1/2 Peter Pan from August All You, or $.60/1 from 8/1 SS
1 tsp. margarine or butter (we used margarine)
sliced bananas (optional, but I thought they were so much better with the bananas, not so sticky!)
jelly (also optional, but you can warm it up a little for dipping; my son liked it with the jelly but I was much happier with the bananas!)
Serve with . . . Carrots On Sale $1 at Kroger
Apples If you’re in a hurry Crunch Paks are on sale $2.50 at Publix, but it’s probably cheaper to buy fresh apples even if they’re not on sale!
or Canteloupe On Sale $2
