Does anyone have meal ideas?

I need some VERY quick meal ideas. Literally almost no actual cooking involved on a tight budget. For that matter, it doesnt even need to be meals. Good healthy snack ideas would be greatly appreciated as well. My preemie keeps me on my toes and I barely time to eat much less cook

  • Tuna helper. Canned hash. Canned soup. Sandwiches. (cold cut, peanut butter, fried egg) Eggs, toast, salad. Hot dogs- cook them in the microwave. Serve with salad and canned or frozen vegetables. Good luck!

  • Get a crock pot now!!! I love mine. With 5 kids I barely have time to cook. With a crock pot you put the food in and leave it. And you can find all kinds of recipes on the internet and most are really easy. Just about anything can be cooked in a crock pot!  Even mac and cheese!
