Delicious meals don’t need to take long to prepare. Take a detour from the take-out lane by keeping a repertoire of quick fix meals.

In the busy-ness of life, it’s easy to let mealtimes slide. It’s also easy to get lost in food prep and get overwhelmed by your time in the kitchen. While I love to be IN the kitchen, I also love a break. Restaurant meals are nice, but home cooking that is quick and easy to prepare is even nicer.

Check out some of our favorites:

  1. It’s a work in progress at my home with the quick meals. Dh and I have lots of discussions about what works for us and the 5 kids. Currently, we keep a stash of spaghetti and meatballs in the freezer along with storebought tortellini and ravioli. All of these make quick meals for us since I just need to make sauteed veggies on the side. Having a container of prepped veggies in the fridge helps, too.

    I should try the sandwich bar one night. I’m sure the kids would love the idea of putting their own food together!

    Spaghetti and meat sauce is one of our quick fix meals. I do love a salad and the more it has in it, the better. LOL DH’s Quick Fix meal is hamburger patties. We make them plain or with brown gravy over them with boiled potatoes and another vegetable on the side.

  3. Taco salad or Burritos….probably.
    I also do pasta dishes quite often!
    I try to keep homemade meatballs in the freezer though for fast meal options! They can be used with gravy for Swedish type meatballs and noodles or mashed potatoes with salad. They can be used in Spaghetti or on meatball hero sandwiches. They could also be used with a sweet and sour sauce!

    • @Martha Artyomenko,
      Meatballs are a go-to for us too. Everyone picks a flavor to dip their own in (ketchup, bbq sauce, jalapeno jelly, cranberry, etc.) Serve with simple sides and dinner can be on the table in less than 10 minutes. But more importantly everyone is happy! 🙂
