Toddler + No Nap + Slightly Stressed Parents = Seven Layer Dip for Dinner

The toddler is transitioning into not taking naps, and while we love the much earlier bed times, late afternoons can be ROUGH. The other day, after several nap-less days (and a much more unreasonable toddler than usual), I decided that we needed some comfort food and created my own version of a seven layer dip. Not only was this a super easy and fast dinner, but it also provided some much needed comfort food for hubby and me… Smile 

Seven Layer Dip (Starting with Layer 1)
  • Organic baby lettuce blend
  • Spiced, warm lentils
  • Salsa
  • Guacamole, just a very thin layer
  • Non-fat Greek yogurt
  • Cheese, just a little
  • Green Onions

While I tried to keep the dip healthy, we did scoop the dip up with plenty of tortilla chips. I know, veggies would have been healthier, but sometimes you  just got to do what you got to do…

Hubby thought that the seven layer dip ingredients would also make an excellent burrito filling. Great idea! Our “Stress-relief burrito” will be coming soon! Smile

Question: What’s your favorite comfort food? 

Be well,
