Home late!!! Trying to catch my breath after carrying two children and an armful of bags up the stairs and into the house. Shoes off, someone's screaming, I'm trying to get settled. Wait a minute. Dinner?!?!
This has obviously happened to me more than once, so I've devised a few recipes to have up my sleeve on nights like these in order to feed my super hungry posse in (way) under 20 minutes. I adore pesto, eggs and bread. They have long shelf lives and are always on hand in my fridge. Thank goodness I can use them to make something my guys not only like -- but really love, like this Egg Pesto Melt -- so I don't have the mommy guilt of not getting a decent meal on the table.
Even when I'm short on time and still have a night of bath, brushing teeth, books, and bed ahead of me (phew, I'm exhausted...do these days ever end?), at least I can be assured we all have bellies full of nutritious food.
