Quick and Simple

With back to school and busy days, quick and simple meals are necessary. While frozen broccoli is boiling, I saute several cloves of minced garlic in olive oil til softened but not brown.

Add chopped walnuts. Saute for a minute or two (add a bit more olive oil if it gets too dry).

Stir in broccoli.

And serve over brown rice with a dash of soy sauce.

Quick and simple projects are also necessary in order to be a bit creative every day.



Quick and simple in 30 minutes or less.

Hope you are having a beautiful day! Best wishes and blessings, Tammy

Hi Tammy....Jingles looks adorable. The broccoli/walnut dish sounds good, but I'd put in less garlic. Hubs is not a garlic lover at all. I think the walnuts sound good with the broccoli, Tammy. Susan from writingstraightfromtheheartg.blogspot.com

That sounds so good. I'll have to try it. The cloves are something new for me in vegs but very middle eastern!
I go in on Monday to get my biopsy results. Thank you so much for remembering. You need to schedule your appt! Not worth skipping when catching things early makes the world of difference.
Hope school is going well.

YOu have mastered the art of making simple and quick look wonderful. Your dinner looks lovely. Hope it tastes as good as it looks. We had recipe exchange at my house this morning. It was a bunch of fun, and i walked away with a lot of new recipes.
Boys have some kind of bug. Zane and Dany are not doing well right now. No more fasting for them... Maybe allergic to Doha?? HA!
Glad you are finding that quality down time each day. I love seeing everything you do!!
