Right now I have a serious case of Spring fever. And my lazy-gene has been a bit more active as of late. Hmmm......
I am all about the quick and easy these days. In regard to food.
Let's set that straight......however, there are those days in which I revel in the long prep, the chopping, sauteing, stirring, reductions, marinades and long slow roasting times.
But this isn't one of those days. :-)
This is similar to a dish I made called Pasta Gwendal a year or so ago. Simply open the fridge and grab the veggies of your choice. The little bits of things left which won't make a side dish but combined with the other vegetable orphans, blossom into a good healthy meal.
My crisper housed a single large zucchini, a few mushrooms, three scallions, half a green bell pepper and half a jar of sun-dried tomatoes in oil.
Put the pasta water on to boil while you chop the veggies. Tip a bit of that sun-dried tomato oil into the pan and heat. Pasta takes 10 minutes so, let's start the saute of the vegetables. Easy, right?
If you have a salad to go along with your meal that's great. I was fortunate enough to have a tropical fruit salad with lots of juicy pineapple, kiwi and a few strawberries thrown in.
This is a meal I made after reading Waiting: True Confessions of a Waitress by Debra Ginsberg. I posted my review at Novel Meals here.
Basic food...totally satisfying. Low in cost as well as energy. Love it!
Do you have go-to quickie meals? What do you fancy when you have little time but don't want nuke something or order a pizza?
Speaking of quickie meals and ease of prep, my friend Heather has been participating in #50 Women Game Changers which highlights different female cooks/chefs and this week - it's all about the self-professed queen of ease, Nigella Lawson! My favorite. Please check Heather's post out HERE. Nigella...my favorite.
Coming up soon is my copycat dinner roll recipe I borrowed from my friend Rita of Sage Cuisine.
The Dish is an old movie I had been meaning to post about for a long time. The movie is based on a true story about the Apollo 11 landing ...
