A desperate plea from David Koon:
Around my place we sort of get in a rut when it comes to dinner. Because there's so little time to cook anything substantial after work — and because my seven year old starts trying to eat the handle off the refrigerator the moment he gets in the door — we usually end up cooking something fast, boring and nowhere near healthy. Hence the rut.
I'd like to get out of that rut — both by broadening my lineup of quick and easy recipes, and by eating more veggies.
That said, here's a request... more like a plea, really: One Hour (or less) Recipes; cabinet to plate in less time than it takes to watch an episode of "The Dukes of Hazzard" — and hopefully prepared in one pan. Your submissions don't have to be healthy, but it would sure help. I'm no snob, either: I believe some of the best dishes in the world have a can of cream of chicken soup and/or Rotel in the ingredient list.
Help me out if you can. If I have to stare one more helping of Rice-A-Roni in the face, I might do something drastic.
