Basic Fast Dinners

      No Comments on Basic Fast Dinners

For nights when you don’t have much time, or you’re just not real motivated – I’m sharing my basic go-to dinners.

I plan a 3 course meal – a meat, a vegetable, and a side.

Examples-

Pork chop, sweet potato, green beans

Steak, baked potato, salad

Grilled chicken breast, steamed broccoli, beans

Chicken breast with teriyaki glaze, green beans, pineapple

Cheeseburger, salad, watermelon

Spaghetti, salad, garlic bread

Tuna salad subs, broccoli salad, fruit

So that is the simple formula.

You can also do grilled peppers, onion, and garlic (love this!)

Every week I buy –

Chicken breasts

Pork chops

Lettuce

Tomatoes

Onion

Broccoli

Green Beans

Fruit

I make sure I always have –

Cheeses

Can Tomatoes

Tomato Paste

Pasta

Rice

Beans

Tuna

Hamburgers (I pre-make them and put them in the freezer)

Mini-loaves and buns (I keep them in the freezer)

Once or twice a month I’ll buy steaks, but I make them the same day. They are not as good once frozen.

To make life easier, when I get home from the store, I individually wrap the pork chops and chicken breasts so I can take out just what’s needed. I put each one in a fold over baggie, and then put those in a freezer bag.

If you have enough selections in the house, as long as you remembered to take something out of the freezer, dinner is easy!
