Choose Quicker Meals to Save Time | Life as MOM

Today’s time-saving tip is somewhat of a no-brainer. Want to save time in the kitchen?

Then choose quick-cooking meals!

Duh. {smacks head} I confess, and my husband would be able to tell you that I tend to be rather ambitious – in life and in the kitchen. I overestimate the reserves of time that I have and think that I can pull off a four course meal in one hour before hockey practice.

Hello, McFly? That ain’t gonna happen.

Over time I’ve learned that some things fall into the category of quick fixes. These would include:

  • eggs
  • pancakes
  • quesadillas
  • beans and rice (but only if the rice is white and the beans are canned)
  • pasta with butter, alfredo, or red sauce from the freezer
  • sandwiches (on store bread, not freshly baked)
  • tacos, but not on homemade tortillas

Sometimes we are our own worst enemies. We overplan, over book, over cook.

Plan quick meals and you’ll save time in the kitchen.

What’s YOUR favorite quick meal?
