Yummy Sketch of the Day -- Quesadillas, a cupcake painting and some fun updates

Hi Everyone...



Inspired by a call with my friend Carmen...(she had a Mexican Lunch) I decided to feature some fresh Quesadillas for the "Yummy Sketch of the Day"....yum yum!



I also happened to do some research on making homemade tortillas and found the coolest web site with a easy How to make corn tortillas recipe...and so much more....I just have to find or make the cool contraption for flattening these....like this DIY Tortilla Press or this Tortilla Press "Tortilladora" you can purchase...



I also added the third painting in my "Sweet Escapes" Series...a yummy strawberry shortcake cupcake....this one is my personal favorite ...



and last but not least one of my favorite easy recipes....I shredded zucchini today for this recipe but you can also use pumpkin or squash...(pumpkin is what my Mom uses and is one of my favorite things to eat)...it is a great side dish or a nice light lunch....I slice an onion really fine and saute it with some olive oil, then add the shredded zucchini or squash or pumpkin, salt and pepper to taste and cook till it's soft and yummy ....then finish it off with a few spoons of sour cream....My husband loves these on top of mashed potatoes...but on their own they are divine too....



If you have some requests for the "Yummy Sketch of the Day" please feel free to leave me a comment....I love requests....



Cheers,

Diana
