Fully Loaded Reuben Quesadilla's!

Happy Friday Foodies! I’m waiting on some impending thunderstorms. I hope they hurry up. One of my favorite parts about spring and summer are thunderstorms! It’s the best thing if it is not going to snow, in my own opinion.

This weekend is a big weekend for Nick and I. Tomorrow Nick is running his 10k and I am terrified for him. He’s definitely worked hard, but I am still concerned. He’s especially been looking forward to his 10k for another reason: going to a Chinese Buffet. That was one of the agreements we had. I am not looking forward to that, in fact, I will likely just have a soda. I really have to crave Chinese food, but even then I like ordering it in. Chinese Buffets are generally mediocre at best. But he’s looking forward to it, so I will definitely go with it.

And on Sunday we are meeting our realtor for the first time. Thank goodness for USAA fixing us up with somebody good. It’s nice not to have to worry about finding reputable people. This guy definitely seems on his game. However, I am slightly nervous. This is a big step for Nick and I. I am looking forward to the next chapter in our lives, but it’s a huge investment and very intimidating. We will see.

Anyway, let’s get to some yummy food. My friend Lauren over at Lauren Kelly, Certified Nutritionist asked if I would be a guest blogger on her website today. I totally agreed because I think Lauren is absolutely phenomenal. If you have not already done so, go check out her website and facebook page!

The only guideline I had was a St. Patrick’s Day recipe. I sort of forgot to create St. Patrick’s Day recipes in advance. Well, that’s not exactly true. I had some really good ideas but was unsure if they would be made. When I heard from Lauren I thought it was a divine sign to go ahead and make some delicious recipes this week.

It really worked to Nick’s benefit because he has been asking me for weeks if I was going to make Corned Beef and other yummy dishes that he really enjoys! I’ve actually had a lot of fun with these recipes this week and will likely continue because I have other ideas. So beware! Today I have a delicious recipe. I mean DELICIOUS! How about you whip up some Fully Loaded Reuben Quesadillas for a St. Patrick’s Day party?? Paired with some Irish Ale you’ll make everybody around you happy!
