Favorite easy school day meal?

Posted by   + Show Post
What is your go-to meal when you have a busy/stressful day? I'm trying to wean myself off the convenience of fast food, and would love to hear what you do to make school day meals a little easier. :)

When I have extra money, I do once a month cooking. That way, dinner is quick & easy. It saves tons of time!

Leftovers, sandwiches, rice with burger and cream of mushroom soup, my favorite treat is bean and cheese burritos.  I buy black beans and put them on a tortilla with a little cheese.  About a minute in the micro and they are ready to go!  Without a microwave, I put the beans in a pot and lay my tortilla on top to soften while I heat them.  Then I just sprinkle the cheese and hope the beans are hot enough to melt it.

I like Cajun beans and rice...especially in the winter months.  We usually cook up a crock pot full, and freeze the remaining for future quick meals.

Use a crock pot. There are so many meals that you can make effortlessly using a crock. Usually you can do the preparation the night before, and then just pop the crock into the base and turn it on in the morning. There's a CafeMom group just for crock pot recipes if you need ideas. You can cook meatloaf, roasts, chicken pieces or whole, ribs, pasta dishes, the list goes on.
