One pan meals like this savory ham, asparagus and potato skillet put a healthy meal on the table in minutes.
By the time Sunday rolls around I’m far from ready for Monday – much less, the rest of the week.
I’m not raising kids anymore, so I don’t spend weekends at sporting events. I don’t have homework to get ready, I’m not trying to get piles of laundry folded, and school lunches packed for the next week.
Yet Sunday night rolls around and I find that the weekend has flown by and I’m still working on chores that I didn’t get done last week!
Where does the time go?
It seems that I’ve managed to fill my life with new activities that take over my weekends almost as much as those busy child-rearing days. By Sunday night I need a quick and healthy Sunday supper.
One skillet meals work perfectly into a simple supper plan. A few flavorful ingredients and you can have dinner simmering away on the stove while you’re folding laundry.
A package of colorful new potatoes (I love the purple variety!), a package of pre-cooked ham, sliced asparagus and fresh sage is all it takes to put a balanced supper on the table.
Even better, make extra and save it for an easy breakfast with a poached egg the next morning. Now that I think about it, this ham and potato recipe would make a terrific Sunday breakfast too!
Happy, healthy cooking.
