Cooking with Kids: St. Patrick’s Day Shamrock QuesadillasSt Patties-Shamrock-Quesadilla-Cooking with kid-St Patricks DayEver wonder why we use shamrocks on St. Patrick’s day? Well, according to Wikipedia, “Saint Patrick, Ireland’s patron saint, is said to have used it as a metaphor for the Christian Holy Trinity.And interestingly enough, “the name shamrock comes from Irish seamróg, which is the diminutive of the Irish word for clover (seamair) and means simply “little clover” or “young clover”.”

So what better way to celebrate this holiday than by making yummy quesadillas in the shape of a shamrock? They are ultra easy to put together and just plain fun for kids of all ages to make.

Cooking with Kids: Shamrock Quesadillas

Cooking with Kids: Shamrock Quesadillas

Ingredients

  • Favorite Veggies (We added organic baby bella mushrooms, Broccoleaf and cherry tomatoes)
  • Monterey Jackand Cheddar Cheese
  • Green Spinach Wrap Tortillas
  • Large Shamrock Cookie Cutter

Instructions

  1. Have the kids add cheese and their favorite veggies on top of one tortilla. Top them off with a second tortilla. Note: It's less of a mess if you cook the quesadilla with ingredients inside and then use the cookie cutter to make a shamrock shape; however, it's more fun to let the little ones create it first and then cook it.
  2. Adults, place the shamrock quesadillas on a skillet for about a minute on each side or until cheese has melted. Serve and enjoy!

    I’ll have to make these for my kids sometime. They would go crazy over the green tortilla. Plus a good way to sneak in a little extra spinach. Haha. Thanks for sharing!!!

    Oh my goodness! How adorable and creative are you?! My oldest basically only eats quesadillas or grilled cheese, so this will be a fun take for her…even if it’s not St. Patrick’s Day anymore! Thanks, girl!

I read this a few weeks ago and it has been stuck in my head ever since. It’s easy to get caught up in the comparison game more so with all the social media outlets but remember this... Stay true to who you are because that itself is what sets you apart. And how are you using your uniqueness to inspire and uplift others?

Happy Father's Day to all! Especially to my dad and this hunk. There are not enough words I can say to describe just how important you both are to me and the girls. And to my love, thank you for working so hard for us and for your unconditional love! For raising our girls to be kind humans and to always believe in themselves. Oh and for finally realizing you were missing out on the matchy matchy. You totally surprised me when you said you actually wanted matching pajamas. 😆😘

  • #ad Most of us remember to grab sun protection when we're headed to a pool 🏊‍♀️ or the beach 🏖 but don't forget about all the other fun outdoor activities. ☀️ It's so crucial to keep our little ones skin protected as well as ours too! .

Loving the Aveeno® Baby Continuous Protection®  as it's free of all parabens, phthalates, dyes, fragrances & chemical sunscreen ingredients! But best of all, this sunscreen contains the highest level* of zinc oxide for superior UVA/UVB protection for babies with sensitive skin. And I've been using AVEENO® PROTECT + HYDRATE® Lotion Sunscreen. So awesome that it's for both face + body. Save $3 off any Aveeno Sun or Aveeno Baby Sun product at CVS through Ibotta #SunnyMoments @aveenous @cvspharmacy #CVSBeauty PC: @lin_marty
