Cooking with what you have in the house.

If you follow me on Facebook then you know I've had a sick seven year old at home today so cooking dinner wasn't on my priority list unless the kids wanted crackers, cheese, yogurt or raisins.  I thought that wouldn't be a good dinner after all so I went through the fridge to see what I could cook rather quickly for four hungry people.  Two of my people are away for the night so I didn't have to cook for us all.

I found sweet potatoes, cabbage, onions and broccoli (all organic) in the fridge just waiting for me to cook. 

I threw the sweet potatoes in the oven to bake and then put everything else in a pan to cook in olive oil with a lot of spices.

It was really tasty and I threw it all together in an hour!

I guess I am Supermom after all because the kids aren't eating cold cereal, applesauce or yogurt for dinner.

I have had to do a lot of last minute meal preparations and have one tool that I really love. It's my Flavor Wave Oven and I use it for the reason it was invented. I can take a package of steaks out of the freezer rock hard and in 30 minutes we are eating juicy, done steaks. It cooks with convection as well as infra red cooking from the inside out.
We eat too much meat sometimes so I think your selection was super good for your family. We have to always be ready to make a plan come together. You did a splendid job.
