Early Bird Special

My eating schedule seems to be off the norm today, so I ate an early dinner/late lunch... but I don't plan on eating a big dinner since I've got lots of things to do today and will be going to the Boyfriend's parents' house later for a little get together.

I may have a green monster sometime around 8:00 to tide me over.

Anyway... I was getting hungry so I made a veggie quesadilla and some baked sweet potato chips.

Veggie Quesadilla:

- 2 whole grain La Tortilla Factory tortillas
- Some low fat shredded cheddar
- Assorted veggies (in mine: mushrooms, spinach, onions, red, yellow, and green peppers.)
- whatever spices you like
- Salsa on the side for dipping

-Spray one side of tortilla with PAM (or whatever version of cooking spray you like). Place sprayed side down on a baking sheet. Put on the veggies and cheese, top with another tortilla sprayed with PAM.

-Bake at 400 degrees until tortilla gets crunchy and cheese is melted.

For the baked sweet potato chips: I just sliced up the sweet potato. sprayed and seasoned the chips, then baked (turning chips over half-way through) for about 30 minutes.

That looks really yummy. I love yams/sweet potatoes, but I tried the french fried once and -- ewww. So I could never wrap my brain around preparing them any other way. I may have to try your chips.
