ONE NIGHT THIS WEEK, I WENT REAL SIMPLE...
MADE SOME LOW FAT TUNA SALAD WITH ONIONS
PUT ON SOME LIGHTLY TOASTED BREAD
ADDED A SLICE OF 45 CALORIE SARGENTO CHEDDAR CHEESE
PUT UNDER BROILER ON LOW
GRILLED UNTIL CHEESE MELTED
HUBBY AND I EACH HAD 2 SLICES - ALL FROM ONE SMALL 5 OZ CAN OF TUNA IN WATER.
I always try to take out the meat we need for dinner in the morning or even the night before. That way even if I just pop chicken pieces in the oven if I'm too tired to do anything 'proper' it takes no time at all to boil or stirfry up some veggies, occasionally with Chinese noodles and chilies if I'm in a particular hurry or late getting myself together... I also delegate some of the cooking to my significant other - he cooks a mean paella!!
2 weddings to be glam for - the second will be my own in Spring 2013!! A good place to start...
2012 must surely be MY year at last!!
When I was teaching, I'd cook a Sunday Dinner. I'd cook double everything and package the extra meals up. Same thing for Tuesdays. Sometimes on Saturday I had enough energy and time to cook a meal again. It was nothing to do the double meal as long as I had planned and had the ingredients in the house.
That gave me 3 - 4 extra servings of evrything I had cooked. When I was at home and needed a meal, I was very happy to warm something up from my freezer. If you freeze the sides separately from the main course, it's easy to mix and match so you don't feel like you're eating the same thing all the time.

Happy May Day!
I've resorted to meal replacements for breakfast and lunch. I just can't make time to create made-from-scratch meals that I enjoy.
I'd love to hear how others cope with a hectic schedule and still manage to cook healthy meals.
Have a great day!
