When I am up to my own devices, I am a nibbler. Almonds, cheese slices, fresh fruit, over easy eggs and toast. It is all easy. Very little clean up. Good basic food and I had more time to work on some projects, pursue some interests, read, watch a movie and catch up on "So you think you can dance" in peace (without comments and eye rolling, so shoot me - I like the show).
But eventually you get hungry and you need something more. Hunger happens and if you wait too long you start fantasizing about foods you probably shouldn't and the end result is not as healthy or even remotely close to what you should be eating. You KNOW what I am taking about. Food covered in cheese or sauteed in butter or topped with whipped cream or something to do with chocolate. Nobody's watching. Just you and your frying pan! That leads me to "What is for dinner tonight?" Several months ago, I had a flatbread appetizer in a restaurant that I really enjoyed which gave me the similar idea to do a crispy flatbread topped with veggies and goat cheese. Something simple and I only need to use one pan.
