I've had my nose to the grindstone the last few weeks and have had to "make do" with some quick, simple dinners. Some of my favorites: a flour burrito, smeared with a little olive oil and garlic. Top it with a little of what you haveon hand or left over- diced steak and mushrooms with a little feta; diced roast chicken with black beans and a little salsa; boiled shrimp cut bite-sized with diced avocado, cilantro, and a squeeze of lime juice. Even simpler, a smear of tomato sauce, a sprinkling of diced fresh mozzarella, and a few basil leaves. Put it on a pizza stone in an oven preheated to 500F and you'll have a tasty little dinner in just a few minutes, done by the time you make a salad.
What are some of your quick-but-delicious weeknight ideas when you want good food in a minimum amount of time? Email me. I'd love to know.
