What’s Amy eating?

Written by amy on January 30th, 2015

Running late from work, a pair of hungry kids, and only 1 hour before we have to leave for swim team practice.  Short on time, short on energy, short on patience, short on inspiration. Sound familiar? For nights like this, I have a mental list of quick, easy dinners that are largely comprised of staple items, ensuring that the ingredients should be on hand.  I also stick to the basic principle of including at least three different food groups at the meal, one of which is a protein food and another of which is a vegetable.

Tonight’s menu:

Hominy Chili

Baked sweet potatoes (in a time crunch, you can poke a few holes in a sweet potato with a fork and then microwave until soft, approximately 5-8 minutes depending on the size)

Carrot sticks

Sliced apples
