Quick Shrimp Quesadillas

How have you been managing?  Hang in there!  I have been dabbling with recipes, catching up with old colleagues and writing.   Reminding my mommies to schedule “me time” in there.  Sending you my thoughts and love.

In the meantime, I wanted to share a recipe with you.   I don’t know about you, but I have been exhausted trying to cook every day and keep it interesting and fun for the kids.  This is a quick, fun meal and uber-delicious.   Serve with fresh guacamole and chips.
