A Peek Into the Life of a Working Mom: Almost Wordless Wednesday (Dinner)

Pan fried tilapia

However, it is also a way to express my love for my family and control what they eat. In addition, cooking is cheaper than going out to eat or getting take out. However, we  do that too.

We know that we need to eat every day, no matter how much we think we are becoming like machines. So, you need your go to meals that you can make without taking up too much time.


Green beans and pearl onions
 My formula is to identify a protein, vegetable, and a starch. If I am making the meal from start to finish, my goal is to have the meal done in thirty minutes, including preparation time. 

Sauteed shirataki noodles with mushrooms

In the interest of full disclosure though, the only thing the kids ate were the noodles! This was the first time I tried the shirataki noodles. I enjoyed them. However, Andre prefers his pasta completely 100...
