Mama Mia makes a simple vegetable medley that I love. It's really quite simple. Take a spoonful of butter and add sliced potatoes, onions, zucchini, squash, mushrooms (if you actually enjoy that taste), and a sprinkle of spice. Cover, simmer, and enjoy.
Yesterday was busy. I had 40 quick minutes between the time I got home from church till when I would leave to attend a symphony Christmas concert. I needed some nourishment. I debated between a peanut butter sandwich or some veggies. The later seemed more appealing. Although I've never made this dish on my own, I've watched Mama Mia cook this too many times to count.
I sliced. I buttered. I combined veggies. I covered. I simmered. I waited. I blogged. I lost track of time.
...and I, uh, ate a peanut butter sandwich. Future suitors, if you are hoping to date the cook in the family, sorry but Mama Mia's happily married.
