A Mexican Home Made Breakfast & The Artsy Life

This are "quesadillas de papa con queso"
Home made Mexican style quesadillas of
potatoes and cheese! They are one of my favorites
and I am sharing with you how easy is to make them!

Of course you have to have tortillas, this are shaped differently than
the regular ones which are more rounded, I like this shape for my
quesadillas but you can use what you have!
If you can`t find any tortillas around you, you can always
make them! I found a recipe for you here!

I use small potatoes for they cook faster, I simply put them into 
water and boil them for 30 minutes, you might need a bit more 
or less depending on your weather, use a fork to check them,
when the fork goes all the way inn and out easily, they are done!
Then I cool them down and then smash them in a bowl, add some salt 
and pepper, you can add a touch of your favorite spices!

Then simply add some potatoes and your favorite cheese inside
each tortilla as you see in the top photo and cook in a pan until 
the cheese is melted and voila!

Serve with your favorite salsa, guacamole or just as they are and
enjoy!  They are fabulous and yes, I eat three of them!! :D

I`ve been practicing my abstracts, they are so much fun to make 
and experiment with, I am really enjoying this side of art!  
Jane Davies is really inspiring me a lot with her fabulous videos,
I just love how she flows with each painting and her use of color!

Words come to me in dreaming
and I dream these words coming out of my voice...

I found this amazing recipe for a delicious sweet afternoon!
Frozen Banana Bites!
They are OMG delicious and super easy to make!
If you want to try it, please read the recipe!

This painting is in progress, each time I try different things and
 this time is no different, there is so much to learn even when you
paint the same subject over and over like faces!
