Finding motivation to cook dinner during weeknights can be tough for many people. Many of us expend a lot of mental and/or physical energy all day at work, and arrive home with an empty tank. If you add one (or more) children into that scenario, especially if they are participating in evening activities, the challenge to cook a meal at home can seem unachievable at times.
In general it's best to keep the TV off when eating because it distracts you from utilizing of all of your senses to enjoy your food. That being said, the Super Bowl will likely be an exception to this rule!
This recipe has a nice balance of carbs (the starchy squash), non-starchy veggies (onion, spinach, mushroom, jalapeno), and protein (cheese, chicken). I like the simplicity and how it can be a surprisingly quick recipe if you are good at multitasking in the kitchen. Feel the freedom to switch up the veggies, use rotisserie chicken, and/or use whatever kind of cheese your heart desires.
