Simple Chicken Quesadilla!

Happy Tuesday!

I am going to share with you one of favorite and simple recipe you can make for your family either for lunch or dinner. I love to pair my chicken quesadilla with a side salad. This is a fast and light meal for the spring and summer times. It has been in the 90's here in Florida for the last 7 weeks can you say muy caliente (hot)!

Chicken Quesadilla:
1 1/2 Chicken breast cubed
1 large red onion
Large tomato
Baby Spring Mix
Sour Cream
16 oz of cheese
Olive oil
Black pepper

1) Season your chicken and drizzle olive oil over it and refrigerate for about 30 minutes. Next, you can cook your chicken two ways. The first way is to cut up your chicken and toss in pan till cook through. Or you can grill your chicken breast on the grill and set aside for 5 minutes and then cut into thin slices. I cook my chicken both ways, but today I did the first method.

2) Next chop up your red onion, drizzle olive oil and cook onion till translucent.

 3) Place tortillas on the grill or pan till lightly golden.

4) To assemble place chicken, cheese, onions, tomato and any other sides you like to your tortilla and then place the other tortilla on top and grill till the cheese melts.

5) Plate up quesadilla with a side of sour cream, salsa and side salad. Enjoy!

Hope you enjoy this simple meal and I love to hear from you so drop me.  Have a great week!

Who Wants To See A Antique Mirror!

Last weekend my sister and I took my mom for the first time to yard sales around our fair city. My mom is not use to doing this, so she was in a bit of shock when she saw what people where selling. By the end of the day she enjoyed herself and she scored BIG when she found this lovely oval antique mirror, which she only paid $2.50 for. When I took the mirror apart, I found markings on the frame and the mirror. The frame was made by a company call Burwood Product Co, from Illinois and the mirror was made by Toledo Plate Window Glass Co, from Ohio.  The mirror has a few scratches, but other then that everything else looks great.

Here are the before pictures:

The paint on the frame was rubbed off, so I used Rust-Oleum Metallic paint & Primer in Pure Gold
Here are the before:
I love all these details on the frame.

I love this antique mirror and I am so jealous my mom found it first. LOL, I would like to add some glazing, but my mom hasn't see the mirror yet, but rest assure I will get some glazing on this lovely piece. (wink wink) Thank you for stopping by and have a Happy Easter! I LOVE your SWEET comments, so drop me a line.
