More quick easy dinners!
Remember how I had antipasto for dinner last week? Well, I had no problem utilizing the leftovers for another quick dinner. With the leftover artichokes, red peppers and provolone cheese, I made pita pizzas. It was another night of cabbing the kids around and when I came home, my eye caught the leftovers in the fridge and some pitas I had in the freezer. It was simple to throw together and great for kids. Of course, my kids won’t eat the artichokes and peppers but you can top the pizza with anything you like. Whole wheat pitas make the dinner extra healthy! These pizzas can also double as an appetizer.
All you have to do is spread your pitas with marinara sauce and top with your favorite things such as cheese, artichokes , pepperoni, tomatoes, mushrooms, chopped ham, etc. The list can go on and on! Bake for about 10 minutes in a 350 degrees oven or until cheese is melted and pizzas are hot.
On to my next dinner. Since it was Cinco de Mayo yesterday, we had to have something Mexican. I browned some ground turkey and added some taco seasoning. The kids had tacos for dinner but this is what I had.
Mexican taco salad is on of my favorites. There is no recipe here as I take some romaine lettuce, tomatoes, the taco meat, shredded cheese and top it off with mashed avocados mixed with sour cream, crushed chips and a little salsa. Simple but good! You can always add corn, black beans, onions or whatever other ingredients you like.
