Somebody Cook Something Fast!

Do you ever have nights when you just don't feel like cooking?

They definitely happen around here. Usually it's after I've spent a lot of time (and money) cooking a big meal on a previous day.

Another stickler when it comes to cooking is trying to get out of the same old rut.  Do you get tired of eating the same things week after week?

It's just fun to try new products.  While at the supermarket recently, I found Savory Herb Flatbread  with basil and rosemary by Arnold.

That's a brand that has some very good products so I popped a package into the shopping cart.

One night, feeling like I'd rather pull a tooth out of a rhinoceros than cook, out came the flatbread. In the refrigerator was good quality honey ham and provolone cheese. (The latter was lo salt which, hopefully, balanced the high salt in the ham. Ha!)

Into the frying pan went about two tablespoons of butter. 

I cut each piece of flatbread in half and layered them with the ham and cheese.

(The taste of the flatbread was pretty good but nothing to write home about. Would I buy it again?  Probably not.)

While the sandwiches heated up, I warmed a can of Campbell's tomato soup, made with whole milk.

In about seven minutes, I was able to call my hubs up from the man cave.

 "Honey, come to supper."   Who says quick isn't yummy?

I have Pizza Hut programed in my phone - I hit the number - call it - and there it is. Sandie (lol)

Yours looked great.

Panda Express at Pavilions. I especially love the orange chicken there.

I always forget about grilling up some hot sandwiches when i'm in a cooking rut. Thanks for the reminder!

When I don't want to cook, I have cereal or oatmeal. In fact, I have that for dinner most nites. Just had some Cinnamon Pecan Special K. Yum! Happy day to you, Tammy
