Dinner at 4

It's the chic new dining hour. Actually, it's the hour to dine if you want to squeeze in seven courses before sending someone to the airport. How did I prepare? I ate crackers for brunch and noshed on a handful of gummy bears while driving to "dinner." As much as I loved the savory courses, dessert was my favorite, and another reason why I'm probably headed for a heart attack after this month's (season's?) excess. Banana Souffle. At least it's fruit.

Any advice on quick, yummy, and healthy recipes? I realize this has nothing to do with your post... but I'm desperate to mend my evil ways (re: subsisting on Ramen and kimche), and I thought you might have some advice.

advice to Kate,

Cheat! Don't know where you live, but you can combine rice (staple, refrigerates well), Trade Joe's (if you have them), Indian food, toss some cubed tofu into some curry simmer sauce, voila dinner. Another good cheat is to find your favorite frozen pizza, get the cheese only, and add your favorite veggies, my favorite topping is zuchini which sliced like pepperoni, layers like it. hope that helps, of course you could put the kim chee on the pizza too.

I'm currently subsisting on Chewy Granola Bars (can I just say how much I adore the peanut butter chocolate chip flavor) and saltines. They're surprisingly versatile for brekkie and lunch (and even the occasional dinner). I also love keeping a box of steamed baby carrots on hand which are still appearing at the farmer's market here. And then there's packets of Lipton chicken soup to which I add carrots, celery, chicken, and broken up Japaneses udon (and of course, break out the saltines to go with the mess). :)
