Brie & Mango Quesadillas!

Lately it's been about celebrating the little things - returning to in person school, having yoga students in the yoga studio, seeing my aunt & uncle after 15 months, the longer hours of daylight and sunshine, making travel plans for 2022, etc. I of course, celebrate every little thing with food and when thinking of what to make for Cinco de Mayo I remembered these Quesadillas that I used to make in the summer out on the grill (it brings back so many memories of outdoor get togethers!). They are so good, albeit a little messy to eat, and pair well with margaritas. So enjoy and soak up those little (or not so little) moments - connecting with friends and family...and good food!
