Busy Schedule? What's for dinner?
My favorite quick and easy meals to make when life moves a little too fast!
Biscuits and gravy is one of my favorite easy go to meals to make on a week night to cure those hungry tummies in my house! (Just my husband and I but I am also eating for two!) Basically I defrost the sausage, I freeze all my meat in case I don’t get to it in time, then cook it until it’s brown. After the meat is all cooked, I drain that then make the gravy! I will add the drained meat, for the gravy I do a simple milk and flour mixture. I add some pepper while it’s cooking while also stirring here and there. I turn the heat down after the calcium starts to set on the bottom, let it sit on low for a few then viola – B’S AND G’S!! Yum!
Spaghetti is one of those easy meals that everyone knows how to make, 3 ingredients and BAM dinner is served. I could live off of spaghetti alone if I were allowed to (those Italian roots :p) but it’s not considered a norm! So until then I will be eating it at least once a week to keep myself happy! Of course defrost the meat then cook until brown, drain..the usual. Noodles are next get those all soft and ready to eat, and of course you gotta drain those! I get the sauce out and put it in the same pan as the noodles were in – LESS DISHES! – add the meat to that mixture and cook it all up to make it warm and ready to eat! I also usually make a little garlic bread with it as well since it takes like 5 min to cook, hubby loves garlic bread so that makes him happy too!
Taco Tuesdays, Tacos every day, Tacos4Lyfe! Tacos are one of the easiest meals to make, it’s the condiments that usually take up a lot of the time… but who needs all that if you want quick and easy?! For the third time, defrost, cook, and drain the meat. You’ll put the meat back in the skillet to add the flavoring with a LITTLE water. Sometimes the directions say to put this much water in, but it’s almost always too much!! Cook on low and let the flavoring mix in, grab your tortilla’s and whatever you want on your tacos then there ya go!! Delish Tacos and full bellies!
