I usually love to cook. However, the 3 meals a day and 2 snacks that I have to produce on a daily basis are wearing me down. I feel like we keep eating the same meals over and over and over...
It might be time to watch some Food Network, which I haven't tuned into in awhile. Though yesterday I was watching Diners, Drive Thrus, and Heart Attacks and need healthier inspiration than that. (Though it all looked scrumptious!!)
Any ideas? In order to give back for any recipe ideas that you give me, here are a few of our staples (that we are completely bored of.)
Chicken w/ Bones in, 1 cup BBQ. Remove bones and skin, Shred and use for quesadillas.
Pulled Pork: Cook over night with cider vinegar. Pour off all liquid. SHred and remove any fat or weird bits and cover in BBQ.
Pot Roast: Chuck Roast, Veg, 2 packets of Onion Soup Mix and a little water. (This works quicker in the table top roaster.)
Roast Chicken: (I put it in the Tabletop roaster or in oven) Veg, salt and pepper, garlic, lemon in cavity
Chili: (kids won't eat it)-2 cans Ranch Style Beans, Ground Beef, 2 Cans diced tomatoes --we grind them up, cumin, chili powder, garlic, or even the Mcormick Chili Seasoning if you prefer.
Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup: Yes, we have this for dinner
Breakfast for Dinner: Ditto on above.
Homemade Pizza: dough is ridiculously easy, or buy it premade at Trader Joes for like a buck.
Chicken, Pan Cooked: We have some version of this weekly. Usually with pasta and broccoli. I'm sure if you have little kids this is on your menu SOMEWHERE. We try to jazz up the adult version by making a sauce or putting in a tortilla.
Tacos: With ground chicken. YUM.
Pork Tenderloin: preseasoned, throw in oven and follow directions on package (350F for about 30 min). No one really loves this, so I have to make really good side dishes. Corn on the cob is a favorite.
Pasta Night: Pasta+Sauce+Trader Joes Meatballs. I get hugs for this.
Not a great list, but that is all I can think of at the moment. :)
