Weeknight Meals || Smoked Chicken and Cheddar Quesadillas with Pico de Gallo

I’m certain each of us here could sound off about all of the things there isn’t time for.  “Not enough hours in the day!” we would say and heads would nod in agreement.  Dinner, for me, sometimes feels like one of them, but I’m bound and determined to make eating dinner together at home a priority.  It’s pure chaos sometimes getting everyone around a table with a hot meal in front of them, but practice is making it easier and the payoff– watching Ever’s expressions as she eats, entranced as …
