Yes, this post is about food, and no, this blog is not about food. How many parents out there have things they want to do besides churning out three meals every day for the foreseeable future? No? It’s just me?
I’m not that picky. I want a healthy, delicious dinner on the table every night at a reasonable hour, it can’t take forever to prepare, and oh yeah, the kids have to actually want to eat it.
Here’s a sample schedule of dinner at my house.
- Sunday: Eat dinner at Grandma’s if possible, otherwise, pasta.
- Monday: Burritos
- Tuesday: Chicken, rice, vegetables from the freezer
- Wednesday: Mac N’ Cheese
- Thursday: Something in the slow-cooker
- Friday: Tuna Melts and roasted garbanzo beans
- Saturday: Left-overs
Is it boring? Yes. But these meals are inexpensive, quick to prepare, and generally healthy.
Not spending hours producing dinner means I might be able to squeeze in another 500 words that day. (See how I brought this back around to writing?)
What are some go-to meals I’m missing? Share, please!
