Meals in mere minutes

So often I hear people say that they don't have time to cook. I don't buy it. It takes practice to be speedy in the kitchen, but tasty meals in minutes are possible. Honest!

Take today's lunch. I was home so I sauteed up some beet greens, topped them with a fried egg and even whipped up some of my flat leaf pesto. The key to quick meal is keeping it simple and multitasking. While the greens wilted, I threw the pesto ingredients in the food processor. Then I stir the greens with some seasoning and transferred them to my bowl, fried my egg, assembled the rest, and lunch was ready in 10 minutes! Plus I have left over pesto for some future meal. Hmmmm.....what shall I make for dinner?

Easy, tasty and pretty darn quick. Oh, and healthy too. That's the reason for making meals ourselves, right? Do you have a favorite, fast, not-from-a-fast-food-joint meal?
