Quick, What's For Dinner?
Some Super Quick Kids' Meals
If you have kids, you need some Quick Kids Meals in your repertoire, because sometimes they want it now! So this is my an introduction to my series of recipes dedicated to Moms who work at a paying endeavor in addition to doing Mom duty pretty much 24/7.
I am past that, thank God! Not that I didn't love it when my children were around, I did. But when you are still in that stage, you need Quick Kids' Meals!
When I was in the thick of it, I kept a notebook of recipes that were simple, quick, and easy on the budget. I know that there are a lot of gourmet cooks and "foodies" on the web. These recipes are not for them. Instead this is for Moms with no time, career people with no time, or anyone with no time or desire to spend any significant time in the kitchen. If that describes you, these might just be your new favorite recipes. Enjoy!

Quick Kids' MealsWhen your children are small, they really don’t care about fancy cooking, and they usually don’t care for spicy food either. So why knock yourself out? Keep it simple.
And think about it. When you are out and decide to stop for a bite to eat, what do they want? Hamburgers, hot dogs, and fast food. So why not give them the same things at home where you can feed them foods made with fresh ingredients. Add a salad, a bit of fruit, and they are getting some balance. It’s quick, and they are happy.
And really, when adults are in a hurry to eat, they grab fast food too. But you can cook the same thing at home for a lot less money, and it will be fresher too.
Also, don’t overlook breakfast foods for dinner. Eggs and Bacon taste just as good at night as they do in the morning. Ditto Pancakes and Waffles.

More Quick Easy Meals
These days it's easy to find quick easy meals online and here's a great thing I discovered. You can put in your ingredients and ask Google to give you a recipe with those ingredients. For example, let's say I have cake mix and apples and I want a dessert using those 2 things. Go over to google and type this: "apples and cake mix recipe." You will get several to choose from. Or try potatoes and milk. Or potatoes and soup. Or hamburger and soup. Try it, you will be amazed how easy it is.
If You Have No Idea What to Make
I even taught my husband how to do this so he could still cook if we forget to go to the store and have little to choose from in the pantry. Yes, I even have it easier than before when I used to cook quick easy meals, as my husband gets hungry before I do so now he cooks. How cool is that? I told him "I don't make dinner, I make money..." and he was okay with it. Yes, I am so lucky!
