You Have a Late Tee Time

June 24, 2009 by

OK, so maybe YOU don't have the late tee time.  

But your husband, roommate, friend, date, mom, or dad does, and you're planning to make them dinner when they get home.

You don't know exactly what time they'll be home, but you know it will be late ... they'll be hungry ... and they won't want anything too heavy.  Especially if they didn't have a good day on the course!

So you want to have something ready that can be dropped in the oven while they're in the shower.  And will allow for super-easy clean-up since it's going to be so late by the time you're done eating.

Now I know I just gave you a recipe using foil packets last week, but I have one more I really want to share with you today.  The summer time calls for fast dinners, and foil packets are really a great way to cook fast, and clean-up even faster.

This shrimp with corn and edamame is delicious, light, and yet something a little different. The vinaigrette dressing gives it just the right zesty kick.

So the next time you're cooking for someone with a late tee time, plan on pampering yourself while you wait, instead of slaving in the kitchen.  You've got the perfect meal for an easy dinner your golfer will enjoy, despite how good (or bad) he did on the course.

Until our next meal,
