When I have a stressful week, I eat my feelings.
Which works well for you because that means I will end up making a recipe and sharing it.
One morning I was packing Ella’s lunch and made her sandwich on a flour tortilla instead of her usual bread to shake things up a bit.
I am one wild and crazy mom.
It was while I was spreading condiments (hate that word) on her tortilla that I had an idea: what if I spread peanut butter and jelly on a tortilla and fry it like a quesadilla?
THAT WOULD TAKE THIS CRAP WEEK TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL.
Enter dessert quesadillas.
I am sure this has probably been done and is pinned on Pinterest somewhere, but for the sake of this blog, let’s pretend I invented this!
Because you know how my brain works, all I could think about while constructing, cooking and eating was that I wish my name rhymed with jelly. So I could create the coolest blog name in honor of my favorite foods (PB&J being at the top of that list).
Peanut Butter and Kelly needs to be a blog somewhere.
Or Peanut Butter and Smelly.
Or Peanut Butter and Deli.
If you were on the fence about a blog name YOU ARE WELCOME.
After you prep your quesadilla, heat some butter in a fry pan. Then after your pan has heated for a few minutes, add the tortillas.
I don’t know the exact amount of time you need for each side because I don’t time it and I am not a food blogger.
Just keep checking until it is brown, then flip.
Our grandma’s didn’t need a recipe, and neither do you.
Look at that peanut butter oozing out.
That is a thing of beauty.
So while I was frying up my quesadillas, I had another thought (besides Peanut Butter and Belly), what if we did peanut butter and chocolate chips?!?!?!
DID I JUST BLOW YOUR MIND?
I KNOW I JUST BLEW MINE!
I folded the above over and fried it up in the pan. What came out of that pan, was pure magic.
This was so good that I licked the plate and debated making more. It tastes like a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup married a S’more.
Only 100 times better.
I am so glad I invented this.
Just call me Peanut Butter and Nelly.
