Word count: Short story, Snakes & Ladders finished and ready to submit tomorrow with maybe one more tweak. Thank you Patti & Amy for your feedback!
I'm a big fan of this combination for dinner: easy + tasty. One of the easiest things, at least since I took Papa Murphy's out of my speed dial, is setting up a salad, potato or taco bar. It's a good way to use up fridge and pantry items at the end of the week, too.
I suppose it's obvious but it didn't occur to me for years so I'll share how we do it: pick your base- tortillas, chips, spinach, lettuce, potato or whatever. Add veggies and some fruit (dried or fresh) if it's a salad. Add beans or chili, depending on your base. Add anything else you have to use up that you think would be good, except meat on Monday if you're participating of course. Top with cheese, a variety if possible. Eat.
