• Lunch time is always that one meal that everyone is looking for something tasty and healthy, but also quick. Even though I’m a stay at home mom, I’m looking for the same. We are big fans of quesadillas in this household. Our flat skillet has a permenant residence on the stove top for whenever one of us wants one. My daughter prefers a simple cheesy quesadilla while my husband and I will just grab leftovers from the refrigerator. I’ve been trying to eat better and expand my own vegetable repertoire and spinach is an easy way to do that. I’ve found that if you cook spinach down and add cheese, it’s usually a winner! Case in point is this Spinach Alfredo pizza! While I can’t get my daughter to eat a whole piece, she will take a few bites and I feel like I’m slowly winning the battle over the three year old. The husband is a different story!
