Another plan B kind of a night
Very late night with SPED kid and medical appointments tonight, we normally eat for 6, but got home just after 7. Sigh. What to do? I was sooooo tempted to order a pizza and pick it up on the way home, but I figured out how to quickly get a hot meal on the table. It's raining, I wanted hot food.
Bring a medium pot of water to a boil and cook some fettuccini that I broke up
Boil a pot of water for tomorrow's lunch tea (refillable bottles) and boil the tea kettle for tonight's dinner tea.
Heat up a can of sliced beets
Take out the rotisserie style crockpot chicken and slice some of the breast meat up, 2 slices/person
Drain the pasta, add some margarine, seasoning salt, freshly grated Parmesan
Stir to incorporate
About 10 minutes or so-DONE! Much cheaper than take out, and faster, too.
