I know I won’t have the mental capacity to put together a meal plan for a few weeks after our baby is born, so I thought I’d make a list of some really simple, quick meals that will do the trick. Nothing fancy here. This is a link to a Google Doc that will update as I make changes to it.
I haven’t used my slow-cooker much lately, but that’s about to change. I’m newly inspired by some recipes found on A Year of Slow Cooking and we’ll sample a few.
I didn’t do a ton of meals for the freezer, but I’m ok with that. There’s a few in there to get us started, and I can use the rest of my freezer space for side veggies, reasonably healthy convenience foods, fruit for smoothies, whatever.
My intentions are to go through that list and have plenty of the non-perishable ingredients on hand. Then, my grocery list for that particular week will be shorter and hopefully easier for me or my husband to get the stuff.
What are some of your favorite quick, I-really-don’t-have-time-to-cook-but-I-need-something-good, meals?
