And I'm not talking about grabbing something out of the freezer and throwing it in the microwave. Go get a cookbook and pick out a recipe. How hard is this? Its not rocket science. Don't you want to prepare a good, nutritional meal for your family? You don't even need a cookbook. All you need is your imagination. Ok lets say you have a box of rigatoni or some other type of pasta in your pantry. Now go to the fridge. See anything green? Broccoli? Escarole? How about mushrooms? Onion? Maybe a jar of roasted red peppers. Garlic! Grated cheese? Ok...go get the olive oil and a skillet. Chop up the garlic and throw it in the pan with the olive oil..LOOK YOUR COOKING!! Clean and chop whatever else you have, and throw that in the pan. Cook till wilted and smelling yummy. In the mean time I hope you had enough common sense to boil some water and cook the macaroni. Now toss it all together. You have a meal. Sprinkle with cheese, serve with salad and a good crusty loaf of Italian bread...your family and your bank account will love you. You probably just saved about $30 bucks and it only took 30 minutes to make.
OH and Pizza? Its not dinner. Its a treat. Your family deserves better.
