Dinner When No One Is Home
Often in our house, no one is home at dinner time, it's sad really, but we're doing our best. I use to leave a pot of soup on the stove, or something in the fridge, but it never got eaten! If it isn't in front of their faces, they don't realize it's there! So these are meals that I make earlier in the day and then I set them on a tray out on the counter and the kids warm them up at their convenience. It's usually when I'm running a carpool or at a bball game and some kids have to stay behind for homework or dance class. It has turned out to be a beautiful thing.
(Or any combination of fun sandwich fixings)
Assemble sandwich so there is cheese on both sides of bread and some in the middle to keep it together. Grill in a panini press.
Bagel Breakfast Sandwiches
(Or any combination of breakfast foods)
Break egg in a bowl, about the size of the bagel, lightly scramble and cook a few seconds at a time in the microwave. Assemble sandwiches as desired.
Shredded Chicken (Don't tell the kids, but I have totally used canned chicken out of the food storage and NO ONE has noticed, even my food snobs! It seriously gives me great delight! I mix it with the salsa to get rid of the canned flavor.)
(Or any combination of fun burrito foods)Place in tortilla and grill in pan until crispy and will stay closed!
