Does anyone else get too busy for recipes? How often do you fly by the seat of your pantry to make dinner? Lately I have been so incredibly busy or I have staggered dinner times going on, so I don’t really plan that ok–everything on the table at 6 pm thing.
Last night, I made quinoa with pesto, feta and olives. It was delicious. Before I walked into the kitchen I only had a vague idea of what I wanted to make. I grabbed some leftover homemade pesto out of the fridge. I grabbed some quinoa out of the cabinet. Then snagged the half container of feta, a can of olives and the partial jar of olives out of the fridge.
Pesto and quinoa went into the rice steamer with some water. The beep sounded and I drained the olives and stirred them into the quinoa as well as the feta. It turned out to be a perfectly lovely and satisfying dinner.
What do you do when you are too busy for a recipe? Is it just taco/burger/pasta or take out?
