What's for Dinner? 10/20/05

I had no plans at all for dinner, but I remembered a dish that was praised highly on Cooking Light that is perfect for just such an occasion. One of my goals as a working mom is to NOT fall back on ordering out or going out to eat - that would only cut into what little money I'll be making at this job (the pay sucks, but the schedule is good). I may need to go to easier dishes, and that's fine, but I don't want to slack off and spend money.

This dish doesn't knock my socks off, but it is quite tasty and it's easy, nutritious and uses ingredients that I always seem to have on hand. There are endless possibilities for varying the ingredients and many of those variations are discussed on this thread over on Cooking Light.

I'm off to a middle school dance - they are calling it the Candy Dance. I volunteered to chaperone, but I have no idea what will be going on or what I will be doing. I'd rather stay home and cuddle up with a nice glass of wine! I'll see if I can get a decent picture to post later, but it's doubtful...........


  1. I'm sorry that dinner didn't meet your expectations. I hate when that happens. Good luck finding quick and easy recipes, thats mainly what I make. Have fun at the dance, don't let those kids dance too close.

  2. Actually it did meet my expectations (I've made it before), it just didn't wow me. I does taste quite good, but it's not something I'd make to impress guests or anything like that. That's okay - I don't need to be wowed every time - sometimes you just need to get something on the table and sometimes good is good enough.
