Emily and Jensen got us a cast iron skillet as a wedding present. Last night I used this recipe to make pizza in it. It turned out fabulous. I cheated and used the bread machine for the dough.

Ms. Jenn came over for dinner. Owen was thrilled! We pretended it was Monday night and watched Heroes and had pizza.

Friday night we had some friends over for a impromptu game night. I made sweet potato quesadillas and Jena brought the margaritas. My folks are trying to cut more meat out of there diet so I thought I’d post this recipe as well. Don is not a big sweet potato fan like I am and he liked this. They were a hit all around.

Sweet Potato Quesadillas
1 1/2 cups onions (minced)
2 cloves garlic (minced)
Saute’ in large frypan in 1 T oil until translucent.

2 t dried oregano
1 1/2 t each dried basil, marjoram, chili powder
1 1/2 t ground cumin
(optional, but recommended)
pinch of ground red pepper or to taste
Add and cook another minute.

4 cups sweet potatoes (cooked and smashed)
Add and heat through, frequently stirring to prevent sticking. Add salt and pepper to taste.

8 tortillas
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese

Spread about 1/2 cup filling and 2 T cheese on half of each tortilla, leaving 1/2 inch border on the sides. Fold tortillas in half. Place on oiled (or foil) baking sheets. Brush tops with oil. Bake in preheated oven at 400F until brown, 15-20 minutes. Serve with sour cream and salsa.
