“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well”-Virginia Woolf
I arrive home after a long 10 hour day of work and I am exhausted. It is all I can do to trudge my way up the stairs, drop whatever happens to be in my hands on the nearest surface, and flop down into my favorite chair. The last thing I want to do is to get back up again and make dinner.
Some days I luck out. Tim will offer to cook dinner and I sing hallelujah, with a sigh of relief and don’t complain too much when out comes the blue box of macaroni and cheese. I know it is not the healthiest, but exhaustion wins out and fast food has it’s day once again.
Herbs, peppers, onions and garlic are dried, salted and mixed together in tasty concoctions. The Freezer holds cauliflower, broccoli, spinach, green beans, carrots and peppers all ready at a moments notice.
I have compiled a few quick and easy recipes (even Tim can master), to help tame the blue box syndrome. If you made my Italian Tomato Sauce, Tomatillo Verde Sauce, or Hot Pepper Sauce these recipes will put those sauces to good use. If not, you can use store bought. Keep in mind that salt content will most likely be higher in store bought sauces and cut down on the salt in the recipe accordingly.
