Okay, I probably should ask: What’s your favorite dinner for me to make with two kids who are hungry at 5 p.m. so you only have 30-45 minutes to make it and, by 30-45 minutes, I mean as long as 2 Dora the Explorers on Netflix?
I made a delicious meal on Monday. Except my husband’s fanfare made it clear that the last delicious meal I made was … well… no one could remember.
So I need your help, Foodie McFooder.
Here are some guidelines:

- If the meal needs a lot of focus, I have to make it mid-afternoon during N’s nap (see reason #1). So it must be reheat-able. Or long simmer-able. Or room-temperature-able.
- If you want me to eat dinner, it cannot be chicken-based. All other meats are on the table, but chicken is gross.

So I ask: What is your favorite home-cooked meal?
I’ll cook it and let you know how easy it is to ruin.
