Food Ideas

  • Love to Cook: Refried red beans, chopped cilantro, onion and avocado on fresh tortillas (or corn cakes)
  • Weeknight Reality: Mashed cauliflower, oven roasted asparagus, pan-fried pork chops
  • Need a Miracle: Mashed potato bar and Caesar salad (use take-out mashed potatoes, if you must; but you can make mashed potatoes from scratch in less than 30 minutes, really)
