Summer Vegetable Side Dish


I’m a big fan of one dish meals.  You can probably tell by the recipes that I’ve been sharing.  With three little kids, I don’t have a lot of time to myself in the kitchen, so I like fast and easy.  And a fast clean up as well!

But sometimes variety is nice.

So tonight I have been thinking of making a traditional meat, potato, veggie meal.

While I would love to make twice baked potatoes, I just don’t think I’m going to have the time, so I think I will go with my favorite garlic mashed potatoes.  And I’ll let my husband pick out the meat when he goes to the store.

What I am most excited about, however, is this summer veggie recipe.  (Click here)  With eggplant, tomatoes, summer squash, and leaks, it contains quite a few of my favorite things.

And I’m going to make some extra of the veggies, so my daughter can have them in a sandwich for her first school lunch of the year tomorrow.  Where has the summer gone?!

I’m going to be on the lookout for some other veggie recipes that go well in a kid’s lunch, so if you have any, please feel free to share!
