Yikes! Where did the summer go? I’m back at work already for teachers’ planning week and it just seems like yesterday we were wrapping up the school year (actually it was mid-June so nowhere near yesterday but it certainly feels like it!). During the crazy first few weeks of school, I sometimes find it hard to serve up a “nice dinner” – sometimes time gets the better of me and I end up eating a bowl of cereal instead ;) This year, I am determined to channel elegance and simplicity in my weeknight meals, even though it’s no longer summer when I am afforded the luxury of cooking all day if I choose. Today over on the Real Women of Philadelphia site, I am sharing this:
Could it be… might it be…
Yep, it’s a savoury cheesecake made with a Panko crumb crust and served with a scoop of ratatouille (here’s Julia Child’s recipe though for this, I diced everything quite small). And guess what? It takes less than an hour to make! Elegant and simple and totally do-able for a weeknight. No more bowls of cereal for dinner!
