It's now September but school has started and we're trying to get into the rhythm of things in our house. I'm leaving earlier now to take the EmmyLu to daycare and I'm getting home around 6 pm after picking up kids at different locations across town from each other. Ben is doing great with all the changes! He takes the bus to school, spends all day learning, plays on the playground at after care until I get there and is exhausted when we finally get home.
Exhausted kids mean they are hungry the second we walk in the door sometimes so if I can make something the night before, it's a win-win for all of us.
This recipe started from Real Simple Magazine. It called for roasted your own red peppers but the saying goes "nobody has time for that." Well, I wish I did because roasted red peppers aren't hard at all to make. That's a blog post to come, I guess. Instead of roasting my own peppers, I opted for a jar of roasted red peppers. I make this the night before and we eat it cold or warm, depending on how hungry I am. My husband likes to add feta to this recipe too.
