Repurposing food in my house is nothing new, especially when there are two food bloggers in one house. It may not be fashionable, but it’s very practical and time saving when it comes to dinner. This past week Naomi made a batch of this spinach and artichoke dip for her pizza here and I took the left overs for what you see here. This went so well, we might strategize this “double-play” again, because time is the dictating factor when it comes to meals lately.
If I can get two meals like this melt and pizza out of one component . . . well, why not? The only problem is hiding it from the kids. Because let’s face it, if they could just eat dip with chips they’d be all over it. As a snack, yes. As dinner, no! Throwing in grilled chicken just gives them some added protein.
Something I’m increasingly aware of as Cole is stretching out and complaining of growing pains and while Connor is shooting up like a beanstalk. Now if only this would take care of my aches and pains that have nothing to do with growing pains and everything to do with aging. Ugh.
