Look! Vegetables. On my dinner plate.
Welcome to Eat Real Dinners Week. I’ve fallen into a pregnancy-induced dinnertime laziness (or it may just be generalized laziness), during which I make a peanut butter sandwich and eat ice cream straight from the carton and call it a meal.
But tonight… I ate vegetables. Yes, it took more than two minutes to prepare. And yes, it tasted like vegetables… not like sugary awesomeness. But it was still good.
In the yummy mix:
White kidney beans
Homemade balsamic reduction (so good with the pears)
And hey, I still managed to squeeze in that peanut butter in some way.
We’re out of bread but rice cakes provided a fun crunch.
Maggie and James say goodnight. Woof.
What’s your go-to lazy dinner?
My go-to lazy dinner is definitely breakfast for dinner. Scrambled eggs on a biscuit or English muffin, side of steamed veggies, done. Bacon optional. 🙂
That said, it did take me a long time to re-incorporate veggies back into my diet after my first trimester ended. Salads did not appeal for a LONG time! Good for you on getting some green in tonight. 🙂
