Questioning the Internets

Quick question, dear readers.....

What is the one thing that you keep on hand (either in your pantry or fridge) in order to throw together a last minute meal?

Any thought/ideas would be appreciated and I will share something tasty later this week!

Until then, is it even possible to believe that these two have been at each other all weekend? This morning at breakfast Isaac informed Evelyn that "the fence is closed, Stay Away!" Huh? He also said she was "interrupting"....guess he learned that word from personal experience.

Ok... this is definately not the most healthy or my favorite meal, but I always have some ground meat, spaghetti noodles, and a can of tomato sauce on hand for some quick spaghetti and meatballs! you can add a can of green beans or corn and make some cheesy, garlic toast and supper is SO DONE!

cereal and milk

A can of black beans drained mixed with brown rice...hopefully there is a purple onion to dice in there, too. We round this out with whatever fruit is in the fridge. My kids love it!

Heinz Baked Beans, Heinz tomato soup, or eggs (not all together).

Puttanesca...whole wheat pasta, EVOO, garlic, olives, diced tomatoes, capers, chicken broth. You can also add anchovies or artichoke hearts.

I loved catching up on your blog. What a dream weekend in Florida!

Black bean quesadillas
1 can black beans
3/4 cup mild picante sauce (A staple in our house)
1 cup grated cheese (whatever kind is in the fridge)
Cumin, to taste
4-6 Flour Tortillas, taco size
butter (opt)
Sour cream, lettuce, tomato, etc for garnish

Mix all but the last 3 ingredients. Butter outside of tortilla. Spoon bean mixture into tortilla and fold. Bake for about 15 min (until edges are crispy) at 375 to 400.

When we're really desperate, grilled cheese and Progresso tomato basil or lentil soup.

Hope that helps:)

We discovered Sea Cuisine brand "Tortilla Crusted Tilapia with Chipotle & Lime" at Costco a while back. It's in the freezer section and everyone I've told about it has also gotten hooked. We always keep a box or two in the freezer. You just pop them in a pre-heated oven and about 25 minutes later they are done, easy as that. They are relatively low in fat and high in protein. We will fix a salad, baked potato and/or open up some canned or frozen veggies to go with it. It always makes for a great meal.
