10 Minute Meals

I weaseled out of the gym today on the way back since today was a nearly 10-hour day of excitement!  I figured that my sore, tired, grumpy self was better off at home instead.  I had one thing on my mind- getting dinner ready as ready as possible so I could get to my happy place.

His:

I quickly pan-grilled some dover sole filets with lemon, salt, pepper, and chili powder.  I added the veggie part by heating up some Trader Joe's Fire Roasted Veggies.  The greenish sauce is a wasabi aioli (wasabi mixed with nonfat plain yogurt- or you can use mayo or Miracle Whip).  Hubby also added some olives, because everything is better with olives.

Ladies Next:

Veggie plate- Butternut squash, carrots, and sugar snap peas with hummus and BBQ sauce for dipping
 
And my cup of toxic waste- AKA leftover veggie juice.  Why do people make beautifully colored juice and I make what looks like swamp sludge?

We are watching a rerun of "How I Met Your Mother" in which Robin and Lily are hiding their prego status and I'm willing myself to do some homework, which will probably never happen. 

Have a great Tuesday- we are the furthest away from Monday now!

I hate that pregnancy hiding trick they use in shows. It's always so obvious!

In response to your ? on how to prepare kabocha - I typically cut it into eighths and roast it at 375 for about 40-50 minutes. I use a glass baking dish and place the squash skin side down in about an inch of water. When you can slide a fork all the way through the other side it's done!
