When it comes to dinner, I have an evil twin. The "good" me believes in cooking whole foods from scratch, every damn night. Then we sit around the table and eat like civilized people with cloth napkins and conversation and everything.
But a few nights a week my evil twin comes home from work with something different in mind. She's tired. She's hungry. She's late. No time for "real" cooking -- I've got to whip up something fast. But I hate craptastic "processed" food because it tastes like genetically-modified iguana tears and will give me cancer/diabetes/gas/a bad disposition.
Except for my arsenal of super-duper, surprisingly-nutritious, not-craptastic secret weapons! Here are some evil-twin ready-made meals that even the "good" me approves of.
Kind of in the same family as ravioli: Potstickers. There are dozens of varieties at Trader Joe's, but my son has a favorite brand that we eat probably at least once a week. I've learned how to make my own with fresh dough ... but on a Tuesday night, the frozen kind will do nicely, thank you.
