I've been in love with Woman's Day 1-2-3 ingredient dinners/desserts. (from Rozanne Gold's Cookbooks) I like the idea of not having every recipe involve 7-14 ingredients. Simple, mostly fast, healthy and delicious are just the thing for us during the week.
Last night we had Salmon with Asparagus and Garlic Mashed Potatoes. Everyone (including the girls) cleaned their plates. It was fast (from beginning to table in about 20 minutes) and easy! I've never used boxed potatoes before and we thought they were pretty good. A good way to have potatoes during the week. This is a good basic recipe and I can see a bunch of ways that you could take it and make it your own. Use an unflavored boxed potato and you could add real minced garlic, or dill, or tarragon.
