tired all the time

So, I usually have some sort of story behind what I make or how it relates to my family life, but I'm just gonna be honest with you readers - my brain is tired. I'm six and half months pregnant; I chase around a one year old all day; and the heat index has already hit the triple digits here in Memphis. All four of my animals have decided to shed every last hair on my wood floors in a seemingly endless cycle and my husband and child can't seem to kick their colds (that means I have two babies to take care of). Throw in a couple of summer trips that have played havoc on our schedule and I just can't think of anything clever to link in with this recipe. It's not the food's fault. This is a great dish. In fact, it is a really good thing to make when you are really tired. It is simple and satisfying. And, well, here it is...

You will need the following:
1 package of slice portabellas
1/4 white onion, diced
1/2 green bell pepper, diced
1/2 cup of cherry tomatoes, halved
2 tblsp of olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste
grated parmesan, optional

Add the oil to a large skillet (I love my green pans personally). Saute the onion and pepper for about 3 minutes over medium heat. Add in the mushrooms. Cook until they darken and soften, about 5 minutes. Add in tomatoes, salt and pepper. Continue to cook until tomatoes char a bit and wrinkle, about two minutes. Pile it on a plate and serve while piping hot. Top with the cheese if you want. It is almost like a pizza deconstructed.

menu ideas:
I served this alongside some creamy polenta and garlic green beans. The carnivore had a big juicy steak as his main dish.
