spaghettini with veggie, garlic and oil
In the short amount of
time it takes to boil up some water and cook up pasta – skinny noodles
like spaghettini or angel hair will cook relatively fast – you can
easily chop up some veggies and sauté them in olive oil to make a quick
and easy sauce. Garlic is a must for flavor; onion and red chili pepper
flakes are also good. Beyond that, you can use just about any veggie you
like … although pasta with simply garlic, oil, salt and pepper is very
tasty as well.
scrambled eggs supreme
It took me a long time to concede this to my boy: that scrambled eggs
do, in fact, taste better at dinner than they do when they make the
traditional appearance as breakfast. My belly just can’t process eggs
too early in the day – never mind eggs scrambled up with an array of
other hearty goodies like onions and cheese. By dinner time, however,
the idea of a filling plate of scrambled eggs sautéed up with a heap of
fresh veggies, some good melty cheese, and maybe some turkey and ham
sounds downright delicious. Get over the breakfast bias: scrambled eggs
really do make for a tasty and nutritious dinner.
course, on evenings when the need to eat a.s.a.p. is so great that I
can’t fathom the thought of real cooking at all, there’s always the
ever-tasty grilled cheese sandwich.
Gourmet? No … but never fails to make my stomach happy
