Spring is here, as evidenced by the number of nights we spend on the baseball field. My daughter gets off the bus at 4pm and from there it’s a race to get homework done, dinner ready and dress the kids for the ball game. Most weeks T-ball is Monday and Wednesday and Softball is Tuesday and Friday. Four weekdays at the field. To answer your question, yes we are crazy and most post-school days are crazy busy.
My focus this season is to find quick and easy meals to make that don’t require too much prep or cooking time because frankly, we have no time to spare. I’m especially in love with recipes that don’t involve several different pots and pans to make the meal. No one wants to have a crazy evening followed by a sink full of cookware before bath and bedtime. No thanks.
This garlic shrimp risotto was one of the easiest and yummiest meals I made all week. I have super picky eaters in my house so I made extra shrimp to serve plain for the kids and dad and I enjoyed a lovely meal that tasted like it came from a restaurant kitchen and didn’t take up a lot of my time.
