Simple Salad

Salads are great because they are quick and easy and you can throw anything into them and have a nourishing, delicious meal in minutes. A salad is especially useful to use up leftovers (veggies, meats, fruits). The salad below uses some leftover items in my refrigerator today but please feel free to substitute and be creative. Be sure to wash all vegetables as needed and pat dry for the best results. If you are in a really big hurry, you can pre-chop all your salad items at the beginning of the week and all you have to do is put the salad together, which is the easy part!

Frozen Banana Nut Snacks

I don't know about your house, but in my house, husband and boy spend lots of time looking for snacks in the evenings and weekends. It is much easier to fight this battle with nutritious snacks on hand. I am happy to point them to these frozen treats, which are very easy to make and very tasty as well. We always have a bag in our freezer. If you make them small enough, they are bite-sized and quite handy even without toothpicks.

Corn Cakes II

The corn cakes we made last week were so delicious my husband wanted them for every meal. Well, that didn't happen, but I did make them again tonight with chili and he thought this second version so much more delicious that I just had to present the variation. The only reason there was a variance is that I was out of ingredients needed to make the other version exactly the same, I was in a hurry, and had a million other things going on. So, the result is this variation (tastier, more delicious) corn cakes.

Salisbury Steak

I think this is the second Salisbury steak recipe that I've posted, and in my opinion, the better tasting version. This was not a quick and easy recipe, however, but only about 5 minutes chopping and the rest involved "over-seeing" the various ingredients cooking. Finally, this takes about 3-4 pans to cook, which is not ideal, but the end result is very delicious and I would recommend as an occasional treat.

Overall, it takes about 45 minutes, which is not horrible, and it's not a lot of hands-on, but you would mostly want to be in the kitchen watching over your pans, etc.
