Last night was so much fun catching up with my best friend, Nicole. We’ve known each other and been best friends for over 25 years. Last night reminded me of really good times when we were growing up together – we spent countless weekends in our teenage years sleeping over and watching cheezy shows like Baywatch while eating Papa Johns Pizza.
OH HOW TIMES HAVE CHANGED
We didn’t watch any TV and definitely didn’t have any Papa Johns. LOL.
Nicole came over right after work and we started the night off with lots of green juice shots before I got busy in the kitchen.
We caught up on everything while cooking. This gooey sweet potato goat cheese quesadilla turned out fantastic! Nicole loved it so much she exclaimed “Tom (her husband) would love this!” – That made me smile ear to ear.
Let me know if you try this recipe – it’s a crowd pleaser and would be awesome for a party too!
