In Season

September 27, 2015

Three simple ingredients and a hot dry skillet will have you cranking out these quesadillas in just a few minutes. A simplequietmodern spin on the traditional, these start with homemade quality tortillas from my local latin market, a Wisconsin Buttermilk Blue Cheese from Whole Foods and crisp thin slices of SweeTango apple. A perfect combination of warm, cheesy, toasty and cool, crisp and sweet will have you enjoying these as a snack, for lunch or as an appetizer from these earliest Autumn days all the way through to Thanksgiving .

Preheat a heavy skillet over medium heat. Place tortilla in skillet, top with blue cheese and cover until cheese is melted and underside of tortilla is browned and crisp. Remove from pan, top with thinly sliced apple and fold in half. Done.

While Labor Day may mark the unofficial end of Summer, it’s actually not over until September 23rd. So, today, my time will be well spent flat out on one of those lounges indulging in a bit of vitamin D therapy or refreshing myself in the cool depths of that slate lined pool. Topping the day off with a simple alfresco dinner and an evening fire at the pool house and I’ve put together the perfect  holiday stay-cation.
