Time Saving Meal Strategies
Tuesday, February 06, 2018
When I cook, I like to make meals that will include leftovers. Some to be frozen, some to stay in the fridge for lunches and a later 'smorgasbord'. Last night, I made a huge pot of chili. Some will be for tonight; I know I won't have time/energy to cook tonight. Some went in the freezer for a future/unexpected time when a 'life' emergency comes up. I think prepping ahead is the best way to avoid ordering take-out and defaulting to unhealthy choices.
My 3 kids are picky (by my standards). But, the more time I spend with other people who have kids, the more I'm realizing that my kids eat more variety of foods than other peoples' kids do. I think they just have 'preferences'. At least I don't have kids who will only eat chicken nuggets, hamburgers and pizza. My kids like those things, but they also enjoy fruits and vegetables and are not too resistant to trying new things. They just don't prefer spicy food (although my middle is becoming more adventurous about this area of cuisine).
