We are thrilled that even when faced with a jam-packed schedule, challenger AnskySue not only made a quick and simple recipe at home, but dared to try a new one!
For our family, spring is our busiest time of the year. I work as an event planner and two of my biggest events are in the spring. My husband coaches baseball and this year my son is playing baseball. This all adds up to some very busy weeknights – we are lucky if we have one evening per week without an activity of some sort. Last week and this week had no open evenings. So that leaves a very short amount of time for dinner between work/school and the activity(ies) of the evening.
Last night was no exception but thanks to this challenge, I made it work! I scooped my son up from school, went straight home and literally threw together the Ravio-Sagne from Chef Devin’s “I Can’t Believe it’s Not Fattening” cookbook while my son worked on homework at the kitchen counter. I popped it in the oven and went for a 2 mile walk around the neighborhood. I got home just in time to pull it out and saute some spinach as a side dish as my husband walked in and we all sat down to a family dinner.
My husband and son both gave the dish two thumbs up! I can’t wait to try more recipes from the cookbook – anything that we all agree on is a definite keeper and the best part is how easy it was!
