There are people in our lives who are there to remind us to stop being whiny, self-involved, bratty adults. For me, they are typically people with kids. If you ever want to get a cold, hard stare (or even a growl) from someone, go and complain to a parent about how little time you have as a single person. I was talking to my brother over the phone about how tough it is to make quick and healthy dinners. I mentioned how it has been really great for Marshall and I to make pizzas at home since I learned how to make and freeze pizza dough. My brother said he didn't have time to make pizza dough. I replied "What about Sunday nights?" He reiterated, "I don't have time to make pizza dough." It hit me. He is in medical school and they have a 3-year old boy to take care of and entertain. I backed off.
So the picture above is a dish that I made while thinking of my busy family. The noodles (spaghetti though I would recommend using Angel Hair pasta) are tossed in a soy and sesame oil sauce (recipe by the Pioneer Woman) with shredded rotisserie chicken, sliced up red peppers, and cilantro thrown in. It was quick, easy and hopefully something my brother and his family can use in one of their future meals.
Love you guys!
