Tuesday is turning into a busy day for us! I have a feeling it will be one of those days when we get home at 6 p.m. from running around all day, famished.
I think it will be a crock pot day!
Here's what we'll be eating:
Tomato Soup - Saute onion and garlic in olive oil. place in crock pot with crushed tomatoes, soup stock (I love keeping soup stock in my freezer - made from all the vegetable trimmings that otherwise would have gone to waste!), a few tablespoons of tomato paste, honey or other sweetener, ground black pepper, and bay leaves. Cook on low for 8 hrs. Don't forget to remove the bay leaves before serving, and puree if desired. I don't usually bother to puree this soup.
Toasted sandwiches - We have leftover pitot, so we'll fill them with tomatoes, peppers, avocados, olives, etc and sprinkle with cheese, and toast.
Fresh Veggies on the side - Whatever is still in the fridge! (I think we're down to carrots and cucumbers)
Apple Crisp - Diced apples sprinkled with cinnamon, covered with oats mixed with sugar and healthy oil, and baked till smells delicious. I'll assemble this in advance and put it in the oven as soon as we walk in the door.
How do you feed your crew on busy days?
