These days I'm all about quick meals. Satchel has entered toddlerhood...enter temper tantrums. I just can't seem to make anything that requires...time
. I haven't even made fajitas in ages...the chopping the grating, salsa, guacamole is too tricky to juggle with a tot at my heels. So here are two of Satchel's favorite "quickies"
and if you have some favorites that you would like to share with me, please comment...I can use all the help I can get.
- Flat Bread or "pocketless pita"
- Pesto (jar or fresh)
- Smoked fresh mozzarella
- Chopped sun dried tomatoes
Spread a thin layer of pesto onto the flat bread. Sprinkle with cheese and top with sun dried tomatoes. Bake in oven until cheese is golden and bubbles. *I've made this an appetizer for parties and it's always a hit!Tricked Out Mac & Cheese
Steam butternut squash (we buy chopped to save time)
in a pot with 1/2 c water until tender (16-20 minutes). Meanwhile begin cooking mac & cheese according to directions on box. When squash is cooked, drain, mash and set aside. When macaroni is cooked, stir in all remaining ingredients (the soy doesn't need to be cooked)
and mix thoroughly.
*My husband hates squash, but can't tell it's in this dish...and the color blends in with the cheese.
