We've all had times when we're just too...well...frenzied to come up with a good meal plan. Being the mom of 3 boys, I've had my share of those days! Things don't get too frenzied around my house now that 2 of the boys are out of the house, but I still have some quick recipes up my sleeve!
1. Get your son to cook for you.
2. Frozen chicken strips, mac & cheese (from a box), and salad. Of course I bake the strips, then put them on top of a salad, which is from a bag because I just don't have time to dice & slice.
3. This takes some thinking ahead, but it's well worth it! Get a pork roast and put it in the crockpot for 8 hours on low. (You don't have to put anything in the crockpot with it. Trust me.) When you get home from work, shred the roast, mix some barbecue sauce (we like Sweet Baby Ray's), put it in a pan covered with aluminum foil, and pop it in a 250° oven for about 30 minutes to an hour. Or, however long you need to keep it in there for it to heat up. Put on hamburger buns, fix a quick side, and you're all set.
One of the teachers at one of my schools & I used to change quick supper ideas all the time. She gave me the barbecue idea...I couldn't believe no one had ever told me about it before!
