Everyone has days when they just don't feel like cooking. Either we're too tired, or we're too busy, or we just forgot to start till we think it's too late. I used to have frozen pizza or something like that on hand, but I wanted a healthier alternative, something I felt good serving my family.
What I came up with is 3 things you will always find in my pantry and freezer:
These are things I ALWAYS keep on hand so that even on the craziest night a quick hot meal is always available.
Just pop the fish onto a baking sheet and into a 375 degree oven for 8-15 minutes (depends on the fish) with your favorite seasonings, and while thats going, microwave your veggies and rice. My son loves this, and I feel good serving it.
I like to cook Tuna Bake I always keep a pkt dried pasta shells, Tuna Bake sauce bought in a jar, a large tin of Tuna and a pkt of shredded cheese in my house takes about 30 minutes to cook. Another 1 is spaghetti with mince and a pkt of spaghetti bolognaise mix, takes 30 mins you can always add corn and peas to it if you want some vegies. Just a few more ideas enjoy.
