Whats Your 'go-To' Meal

Recommended Posts

I keep fried hanburger patties in the fridge.

I have a teenager and he warms them in the microwave with cheese and throws it on Udi's bread. Done.

I chop up one of those burgers and put a slice of cheese, a spoonful of black beans and salsa from the jar. Microwave it, call it nachos, and eat it with chips.

We never get tired of this every time I do it.

Gonna try it with chicken breast soon.

hummus. lots and lots of hummus.

and I dip "food should taste good" chips in it--either the multi grain, the sweet potato (YUM) or tonight, the blue corn.

it's protein and it fills me up when I'm not cooking for anyone else.

eating, admittedly, is not my favorite pastime as of late.

I love those black bean chips! My sister started buying those some time before I went gluten-free and I remember it taking a while before she could finally talk me into trying one because it seemed like an odd concept to make chips out of beans, but I loved them. Those suckers are addictive.

The sweet potato chips are good too. I can pick them up right down the street, but if I had to have them shipped in it would be worth it.

I had an interesting meal at a small coffee bar/lunch counter today - a sweet potato rosti, with grated parsnip and other vegetables in it, with a slice of canadian style bacon on top and a piece of brie. It was very tasty (I took off the piece of tomato on top) and had been prepared in a ring in the oven. Small muffin sized ones would be easy to do and freeze by coating the muffin tins with olive oil and adding the bacon near the end. Then they could be frozen and then popped in the microwave or toaster oven with some brie put on top. They also had some with mushrooms. If you left it hollowed out a little you could pop an egg in there when you put it in the toaster oven :)

If I'm feeling really lazy, sliced apples, cheddar cheese and some dried fruit. For a midway lazy meal, I like Trader Joe's pre-cooked chicken sausage(the apple is my favorite). Pop a sweet potato in the toaster oven, put sausages in the toaster oven to heat when the potato is close to done, and throw some frozen broccoli in the microwave. Serve with some Trader Joe's jarred apple sauce, and voila, easy, tasty, healthy dinner.

I put together a quickie today...a riff on a BLT...corn tortilla warmed with bacon, fresh tomato and spinach. I used some mayo flavored with lemon zest and garlic as a spread. very tasty and very quick.
