How fun are these Vegetarian Quesadilla with Broccoli and Corn? Broccoli, Corn and Cheese are a match made in heaven and putting them in a quesadilla makes it an enticing option for the kids. My kids love the flavor and always ask for more when they are presented with this option.
So Friday nights at my home is usually a "Mommy experiment day". It's a time of the week when I can take calculated risks while preparing food and ensure that nobody gets hurt :-). While R1 & R2 are super scared of what I am gonna make for them, R3 is super cool with whatever I serve him. Yes, this used to be the norm, however, R1 and R2 have warmed up to my experiments as they have not been hurt yet. Now they look forward to and try to guess what twists I may have given to traditional recipes. Its fun as I sometimes don't make any changes to the recipe and they still keep on guessing what is different. Its a fun game that we play at home keeping us busy.
