My Lindy is cooking now!

 What?!?!! Lindy is cooking??? Oh my!!!
Well the time has finally come when I am going to teach my kids how to cook. I am debating on the best way to do this. I guess it's dive in and hope for the best! My oldest is taking Home-ec in school and is dying to learn how to cook, so she decided to try out a recipe at home that she learned at school. Let's just say we tweaked it a bit, added some cheese and cooked it differently in the skillet (yes, I use iron skillets) and pizza quesadillas were born! She did a great job, learned alot and we are now going to start branching out and letting her cook a couple of nights a week. I'm a little scared about this but hey, she's gotta start somewhere.
Pizza quessadillas in action!
 Justin ate enough and then decided to get a bowl of cereal. LOL.
Lindy with the finished product! I'd say she did pretty good! :)
Some of the quesadillas were a huge flop but for the most part, I think she did a fabulous job!  Now if I can only teach her how to clean up all of the messes. :)
 My baby is cooking!!
 Some need a little more help than in progress. :)

Pizza Quesadilla recipe:
Flour tortilla spread with butter on outside edges
Mozzarella or Mexican cheese
Hormel Perpperoni
Pizza sauce (for dipping)
Heat the skillet (medium heat)
Spread the butter on outside edges of tortilla, place in pan and add cheese and pepperoni). Cook for a minute or two. Fold the edge over and cook for maybe 30 seconds. Flip and cook the other side for 30 seconds to a minute. Take out of pan, eat, dip in the pizza sauce and enjoy! :)
