Quick and Healthy Dinner for One

Hubby had to work late last night so I was on my own for dinner. We didn’t do our weekly meal planning and grocery shopping, so I had to throw some stuff together. I got inspiration from a recipe from Allrecipes.com. This was a great meal that literally took 5 minutes to make and kept me full all night. And it was really healthy!!


Goat Cheese / Pesto / SDT open face sandwich
2 pieces whole grain bread
1 oz Goat Cheese
~2 Tbsp pesto
Sun dried tomatoes

Preheat oven to 350. While oven is heating, assemble sandwiches.

Put a sheet of foil on a cookie sheet. Place bread on foil and spread cheese on bread. Spoon on pesto (as much or little as you like). Top with sun dried tomatoes.

Bake for 5 minutes until heated.


Quick steamed Squash
1 summer squash – cubed
1 tsp olive oil
seasoning of your choice – I used Mrs Dash chicken grilling seasoning

Put everything in a microwave bowl and heat for 60 seconds. Stir and heat 60 more seconds.

    This looks amazing!!! I can’t wait to try it; I always make our own guacamole dip. Not sure why you said to add the avocado at the end unless it is because sometimes it changes color with oxidation (like apples and bananas). Since I make guacamole all the time, here’s a tip I discovered: if you put the avocado seed in with it, the sliced avocado will not change colors. Just take the seed out before serving 🙂
