PB & J Quesadillas

Here is a quick and easy lunch that was gobbled up by my boys.  I call these PB & J Quesadillas.

(Except at our house they are really “SB & J’s” or Sunbutter and Jelly Quesadillas since we are nut free around here for now.)

To make the quesadillas, I just spread the Sunbutter (or PB) and a reeeeaaally thin layer of jelly on a tortilla, fold it in half, and cut it up with a pizza cutter (which, has so many uses beyond slicing pizza).

The reeeeaaally thin jelly is essential unless you don’t mind cleaning up all the sticky, ozziness that will definitely squish out of the sides as your little one(s) play with, I mean, eat them.

But, let’s be real, we’re going to be cleaning them up anyway, so what’s the harm?
You may find they are more appealing ripped up in pieces (like Big Brother here who would only eat them this way) or left as wedges (like Little Brother who nearly threw a tantrum when I tried to rip them up).  Oh…to understand the mind of a toddler. 😉“Mo” please, Mom?
