His & Hers Quick Weeknight Dinner

Wednesday nights are usually a little hectic for us. Every other week is Shepherding Group (a small community within our church that meets together to care and share in a more intimate setting than corporate worship). The alternate weeks, as often as we can make it, are prayer meetings at church. I usually get home around 5:30pm and we have to be out the door by 6:40pm or so if we want to make sure to get there on time. That doesn’t leave much time for dinner. This week, I got off a little early and we came home and used the majority of our leftover vegetables from our weekly produce basket for a vegetarian quick fix.

His: EarthFare's Roasted Potatoes (yum!), Sauteed Cabbage (butter, salt & pepper), and sauteed medley (broccolini, carrots, green beans, garlic, butter, salt & pepper).

Hers: potatoes and sauteed medley (same as His), and Sauteed Celery (with shallots, garlic, mushroom, butter, thyme, bay leaf, salt and pepper).

I had half of my plate (and a little of Bryan’s) leftover and boxed it up for lunch today. I combined the celery mixture with the vegetable medley and the flavors melded nicely. Bryan liked his dinner so much that he even said, “That was a really great dinner,” three hours later, on our way home from church! Oh, and, by the way, we were still full and satisfied after church too! Those potatoes definitely stick with you! Yum!
