It’s that time of year again, it’s going to be a month of meat-free dishes. My 10 year old is definitely going to be a problem, that much I do know. So I think it’s time to get creative with my veggies. I think these Spinach Mushroom Quesadillas for dinner is a good start, don’t you??? Well I will certainly hear the verdict when’s it’s on the table tonight. My hubby will be happy, that’s for sure.

I love cooking stuff that I can make ahead. For these Spinach Mushroom Quesadillas you can make the filling ahead of time. Makes life so much easier. I hate having to rush around trying to prepare supper when I have starving kids putting pressure on me. I promise you it’s the days when dinner is not ready on time that they are starving. Believe me…today nobody will be starving because I have everything organised.

Cooking for me was another therapy session. I needed to clear my head. I have been a little disappointed in people this week. I have realised there are really some unkind people in this world and those people are so quick to judge others. Sometimes we should actually take a step back at look at ourselves. I’m not a perfect human being but I do try my best to be kind and helpful as much as I can be. Sometimes I wish all human beings can practice a little kindness and look for the good rather than all the negatives. It seems like some people almost thrive on negativity. I’m so glad that I have a positive outlook on life, my life is not perfect but I try to see the good in every situation. Even on my bad days I try to smile and hope for the best. I’m glad I was born with a smile on my face, even on my bad hair days my smile makes me look pretty….Lol! We should all try it sometimes, I guarantee you it works.

Thank you for listening, I needed to vent. Now back to my Spinach Mushroom Quesadillas. I used mozzarella, feta and a little sour cream in my filling but you can use a bit of cheddar too. There can never be too much cheese. I added a hint of chilli but if you can’t handle the heat from chilli then you can totally omit it from the recipe.
