My son Owen loves pasta. We all love pasta, but for Owen it’s a love affair that knows no limits. He would eat pasta for every meal if he wasn’t (sort of) convinced that the other food groups are important, too.
So when yesterday came around and was just one of those days – you know the type – I was too exhausted to think about dinner. So I took a nap instead.
I awoke with a start when I overheard Teo asking Owen, “What time do we have to be at church for youth group again?”
And that’s when I remembered. Wednesday. The day the kids help out in the junior high youth group. They had to leave in 40 minutes, and I was supposed to feed them, being their loving mother and all.
We can do this! 20 minutes for cooking, 20 minutes for eating!
So I threw together this very fast, and extremely tastey meal – in record time!
Water went into the pot to boil for pasta, then the three – I repeat, three – ingredients that make up this delicious alfredo sauce went into their own pot. Steam-in-bag peas were thrown into the microwave. And leftover Easter ham was chopped into small cubes and warmed in a skillet over medium-high heat.
It was an absolutely delicious meal, and we were eating it even before I had cleared the sleep from my eyes!
