|Quick and easy pizza breads...add a salad or|
some fresh fruit and voila...dinner is served!
Part of it is getting used to working so much after having the summer off. But most of it is that it's just plain crazy these first couple of weeks preparing for the students and teachers to arrive. I was so busy last week I wasn't even aware of the time...I'd look up from my work and see that it was time to go home! And by the time I got home I was toast. Think Goldie Hawn in Overboard...you know the scene where she is just mumbling, in a shocked daze, staring off into space, "Buh buh buh buh buh buh...". Yes. That was me. Or at least that's how I felt!
Needless to say, I didn't cook much last week. Honestly, I think I "cooked" once, if you count heating frozen burritos in the microwave then making them look fancy and appealing by melting cheese on top and adding a dollop of sour cream and salsa. Good thing my husband isn't picky.
I mean, we're not starving by any means. But we cannot live on frozen burritos alone...or fast food...or cold cereal. So I've got to figure out some quick, healthy, tasty, easy dinners to make on weeknights. I have been perusing Pinterest (of course) and have found some good ideas. I also put a shout out on Facebook to my friends, asking that they share their own quick and easy ideas. And they have...thank goodness.
Over the next few days I'm going to be gathering meal ideas and thinking of menu plans that I can prep or cook in advance then assemble quickly during the week. I need them to be quick and easy so I don't have any excuses as to why I can't prepare meals on weeknights. I'll let you know what I come up with.
And I am all ears if you'd like to share some of your quick and easy meal ideas...hint, hint.
