When fall comes, everything seems to go on turbocharge. Suddenly, after those lazy days of summer, there are no longer enough hours in the day. There's football practice for the kids, night meetings for mom and dad. Everybody seems to be on a different schedule and wants to grab a bite somewhere else or eat at a different time.
So what's the answer when even 30 minutes is too much time to cook?
Sure, you can have everyone pick the TV dinner of his choice, but frozen food is not always the best quick fix. The following Fastlane Feast can be put together without even going to the grocery store if you have a well-stocked larder. It's fast, tasty and has enough punch to satisfy even the crowd who frown on eggs as a boring way out.
The key to the zucchini and egg sandwiches is a good loaf of hearty bread and the picante sauce. Lovers of hot food may want to add some additional sauce at the table. Serve the sandwiches with a salad and fresh strawberries topped with cream. If you are really in a rush, you may just want to pour a little cream over the berries. Otherwise just put the cream in a food processor, add about a tablespoon of confectioner's sugar and process until firm.
