Don't get me wrong, my husband doesn't mind cooking (and he certainly does it), but he gets home later than I stop working (I work from home). I stop working at 4:30, and I pick up Julianna from daycare, and put her down for a catnap as soon as we get home. Perfect timing for me to start cooking.
So it's just my routine to try and get dinner going by the time Brian gets home. He takes care of Jules while I finish making dinner. He gets her up from her nap, changes her and feeds her dinner (thank God for my husband!), then she sits at the table with us while we eat dinner. It works out rather well... and he gets to spend a little quality time with Belle when he gets home from work.
Anyway, with all this snow & cold weather, I thought it was the perfect time to share some "Comfort Food" to warm the heart & soul with. I have a few recipes I want to share that meet all my requirements: Easy, tastes great, not too fattening, and did I meantion *easy*.
