I am in a slump again. It happens every couple of months.
I am tired of cooking meals.
I am tired of deciding what to cook for meals.
Funny--a couple of months ago I was so grateful to be in my kitchen again after 2 months of sitting around letting everyone else work while I was healing.
This happens every year. Nobody’s hungry because of the heat(especially lunch). So I stop planning meals. Then I am frustrated because when they are hungry I have no plan. See how this is a bad cycle to get in? I made a super easy lunch last week. I loved it because it was easy & nourishing. The kids loved it because there was cheese on their eggs & they got to have ketchup on their potatoes(can we say easy to please). Potatoes & ham, scrambled eggs w/ cheese, peppers & onions & toast. Not fancy but filling. Easy and better than not fixing anything.
So I am gearing myself up for some easy meals. Here is my short list.
Freezer meals—check out some of my favorites
Fruit, cheese & crackers
Leftovers—gotta find a way to make enough they don’t eat it all
Salads—Taco salad, Quinoa salad, so many to choose from
So I am not going to stop cooking but I am going to be smart about what I fix. What are some of your favorite summer meals?
