{I had this post all written up and ready to publish when...I lost it...two times. In a flash - gone! Getting this one out there has proved to almost be rocket science, but hang on, not everything has to be. Now that everything is functioning again, I'm popping in on the weekend to share a little something with you.}

 

HANGRY

Hungry + angry = HANGRY

It has happened to all of us. It's time to eat and there's nothing in the kitchen worthy of being called a meal, and if you don't get something in your system like five minutes ago, it's going to be bad. And what's worse? Little hangry people that have journeyed past the point of no return, and are melting into puddles on the floor at your feet. 

I am a meal planning kind of girl. A pretty serious one, but that does not mean I have my act together 100% of the time. The last few weeks have found us in the kitchen at dinner time wondering what we are going to eat and zero thoughts in my head! I'm sure you have never been there!

One thing I have learned to be helpful at the international meltdown time of day, is to have a few go to meals that I keep ingredients stocked for, or that are very fast to shop for. That way, I at least have something, to combat all the hangriness in the house. Dinner, on this day, does not have to be rocket science and shouldn't be! This is not the time to show off your culinary prowess or try that new recipe you've been eying. Just get something on the table and fast!

So without further ado, I would like to present to you, one of my go to's, and one of our favorites, (Not Rocket Science) Ciabatta Pizzas.

 

 I snapped some great low quality pictures with my phone, just for you to see how together I have it.

Ciabatta bread (store bought!), your favorite jarred spaghetti sauce, 1 lb of ground meat+chopped salami+chopped onion+ 1 chopped green bell pepper+ Italian seasoning+ garlic salt

Slice your bread and lay it open like this.

Spread spaghetti sauce generously on the bread.

We like it very cheesy.

Top it with the meat mixture and toss it in the oven for everything to get all melty and yummy.  One whiff of this cooking, and everyone will begin to believe that maybe, there is hope in the world again. The crying begins to stop and some semblance of peace  returns.

And just for the love of everything real, I left it in the oven a little too long, (I'm sure there was nothing else needing my attention) so, here you have brown around the edges Ciabatta Pizza. 

What is your favorite go to meal? Any quick ideas? Spread the love! We could all use help with a back up plan. Good luck fighting hangriness!
