Back in the apron

We took a long coffee break here at Chef Zi and are glad to be back. Our silence didn't mean we had nothing to say. Just no time to say it, and also make dinner! But we've missed our blog. And I just got a new smart phone and figured out how to use it to blog while sitting in line waiting to pick up the Chef at school.So here we go... Tonight is one of those nights, where I have absolutely nothing planned and very limited time. Here are the calculations running through my head: We’re trying to use the Mediterranean diet as a model, so that means something with beans and veggies would be great. There’s swim practice tonight, so we have to eat dinner early. I’m working, and then I take the Chef from school to music class and then a doctor’s appointment. By the time we get home, we basically should be eating as soon as we walk in the door. Gee, I wish I would’ve thought this through five hours ago and gotten the slow cooker going. We had pizza last night, so I don’t really want to pay for and/or eat salty take- out tonight. The “healthy” gourmet take-out from a deli or Whole Foods isn’t usually a good option for us because of the risk of cross-contamination with nuts and the other things to which my son is allergic. I realize now we don’t even have time for frozen fish sticks or hotdogs. Panic is setting in. We may have to skip swimming tonight in order to eat…. We could do sandwiches (I did make bread this week). And fruit. And bean salad. Does that count as dinner?
