Sun Posted January 6, 2012 Share Posted January 6, 2012 (edited) This is a spin-off of the SAD thread. We often do something similar to Regentrude's German-style meal. We will often supplement it with an Italian-style brodo--we'll quickly saute a bit of onion, celery, and perhaps carrot, then add broth and a handful of small pasta like stars (stelline). (To give you an idea of the size--it's alphabet-noodle size or smaller). This makes a very light first course that we all enjoy. Another favorite quick evening meal for us is tacos. We keep black beans and corn tortillas in the freezer. If we're really feeling lazy or pressed for time, seasoned beans on the tortillas with a salad on the side may be dinner. If we have a few minutes more, we'll saute an onion and some combination of bell peppers, sweet potatoes, squash, and greens and serve that as another taco filling options. We don't use a pack of "taco seasoning." Instead, we add spices to the onions or beans to get the flavor we want without MSG or other additives found in those packages. How about you? What do you do on rushed or lazy evenings to put a healthful meal at home on the table? Edited January 6, 2012 by Sun Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
