I am constantly amazed at how animated and talkative people get when you mention food. The mere aroma of certain foods can evoke memories that transport us back to a special place and time. Food can bridge the gap between all ages, races and ethnicities.
Let's face it, the only thing that should ever come between people is a table and some serving bowls.

Happy Leftovers

Here’s an easy way to use up all your leftover ham from Easter. Even if you didn’t have ham you could also make this with leftover lamb or turkey.It’s fun food that the whole family can enjoy.

Leftover Ham Quesadillas

4 large flour tortillas
1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
8ounces or more of your leftover ham (thinly sliced or diced)
1/2 cup diced tomatoes
2 tablespoons chopped green onion (optional)
Pepper to taste
Vegetable oil for brushing tops

Lightly spray a cookie sheet with vegetable cooking spray. Arrange 2 tortillas on the cookie sheet, then evenly top with 1/4 cup of the cheese. Top the cheese with the sliced ham or turkey, the diced tomatoes, green onion, then the other 1/4 cup of cheese.
Sprinkle each with a little pepper, then cover each with another tortilla. Brush tops with vegetable oil and bake in a 425° oven for about 10 to 12 minutes, until browned. Cut quesadillas into wedges and serve with mustard or mayonnaise.Serves 4.
