I swear, I didn’t peek at Caroline’s goto quick dinners until AFTER I had confirmed with my 9-year old son, Nico, that the dinner for breakfast category is a familiar one–and eggs are at the top of that category. It just goes to show you that neither Caroline nor I invented the idea of eating eggs accompanied by carrot sticks and hummus for dinner. In my house, eggs for dinner are usually a simple scramble with cheese to ensure that everyone will eat them. I would bet that someone somewhere is rushing some eggs onto dinner plates at this very moment.
When the eggs go on the table I’ll stay in the kitchen and assemble another breakfast-for-dinner favorite: a sort of clean-out-the-fridge smoothie. My kids think that smoothies are supposed to be green, because I’ve never made one without adding fresh greens like kale, chard or spinach to a frozen banana or two, some milk (dairy or non-dairy), juice (type and inclusion depends on the type of dairy added), nuts and other fruit.
In a quick pinch for dinner? Pile any leftover produce in a blender, stick a straw in it, and serve!
