Letís Eat PizzaWritten by Sue DeFiore
One of my familyís favorite meals is called ďlittle pizzasĒ. We take an English muffin and split it, put some tomato sauce on it, then some low fat mozzarella cheese with some pepperoni slices (hey sometimes you just have to splurge)! However, some healthier toppings would be ham (lean), Canadian bacon, turkey sausage, peppers, olives, or sliced or diced onions.
We toast our English muffins before we start process and then pop them into oven until cheese melts. My husbandís parents had a toaster oven and they cooked theirs in that.
Home Cooked Fast FoodWritten by Sue DeFiore
Many years ago a nifty little device came out called Crock Pot. You could cut up a bunch of veggies, meat, and spices, dump them in pot, and it did all hard work. You came home at end of day and Presto you had a nice hearty meal. Add a salad and some bread/rolls and you were set.
As I visit numerous on line boards and web groups/forums I see more and more people mentioning how they made their meal in crock pot. I am happy to see it is making a comeback. With all press which obesity crisis and how bad we all eat is getting, it gives me hope for many Americans. Now we just have to worry about how to get rest of them to eat healthier.
I am so tired of hearing from people they donít have time for home cooked meals. I work, I have kids, yada, yada, yada. Everyone has some kind of excuse. However, if you ask these same people if they saw Survivor, Amazing Race or any number of other reality shows, they can recite show from beginning to end. Well, how about using your hands for something other than stuffing your face while you are watching television. Cut up some meat and vegetables. If you really donít have time it will take to cook up meat (anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes depending on meat and how you like it) then buy pre-cooked meat.
