Becky requested the recipe for Club Quesadillas so here it is:

  • Tortillas (I use taco size)
  • Mayo (or if you have hideous taste like Casey, you can use that Miracle Crap)
  • Shredded cheese (I use cheddar, but anything would work, I'm sure)
  • Deli sliced turkey
  • Bacon, cooked
  • Lettuce (I like shredded, but it's your call)
  • Tomatoes, sliced

Preheat a large skillet or griddle while you are assembling the quesadillas (I set the stove to just under medium heat). Assemble away, as follows:

Spread some mayo on one whole side of the tortilla. Sprinkle some shredded cheese on half of the mayo-ed side. On top of that add a couple slices each of turkey and bacon, a little lettuce, and some tomatoes. Top all that with a little more shredded cheese, then fold over the other half of the tortilla.

Place it in the pan and let it sit until the bottom side gets a little brown and crispy. Flip it over (gently, people--you don't want to lose all the innards yet) and repeat with the other side. Now you can get crazy with it because all the shredded cheese will have melted, causing the whole quesadilla to stick together nicely. Cut into wedges, eat it up and try to resist having another one ... or two.

Speaking of food, this is what I had for dinner last night while Casey was golfing. Don't tell him how incredibly delicious it was. And it was so pretty I couldn't resist taking a picture. The basil for the pesto was from my garden. The tomatoes were not ... and they tasted as such.
Note to self: loved the toasted pine nuts and parmesan shavings; needs more garlic.
