Menu Plan Monday - Fall Back & No Cook Meals

7 years ago

This week marks the beginning of the school year, which means we will be working on getting used to new routines. While I love the idea of no more commuting (yay!) it will also be interesting to have a ton of time after school.

One of the things I am focusing on this week is super easy meals. These are the types of meals that you don't have to think about - you can just grab something and get it on the table. This summer, we've kind of worn ourselves out on turkey burgers, so I'm going to try and avoid that this week.

Because of my food allergies, we don't get too exotic. Here's some of the staples we stick to:

  • Turkey sausage with red beans and rice (yes, still from a box)
  • Bratwurst
  • Chicken Tenders
  • Mac n cheese
  • Tacos
  • Taco salad
  • Burgers

One idea that intrigues me is no cook meals. Since I stink at cooking, maybe this would minimize kitchen disasters? Here's a few links to some good sounding no cook meals:

Parents Magazine - includes pictures Busy Cooks - Lots of links to no cook meal sites

Epicurious - Healthy no cook meals (though they look a little foofy)

So, my question for you is this: what are your go to meals? Have you made a no cook meal before? What was it? As always, leave it in the comments! :)

Who's that Spartan doing tai chi? It's me! It's me!
