The go-to food for me is a Caesar-type salad that's quick to throw together and is yummy. I cook up the chicken ahead of time (1 tsp olive oil, heated & add chicken cut in bite sized pieces - season with cajun seasoning & cook til done), and keep the other ingredients (Parm. cheese, light caesar dressing & romaine lettuce) on hand. The recipe for this is in Spark Recipes under "Cajun Chicken Caesar Salad".
Bring eggs to room temperature then place the eggs in room temperature water; bring to a boil then turn down to a low boil for 12 minutes. Quickly chill the eggs in ice cold water before peeling.
Save Money and time. When you are ready to cook, pull out a meal size bag out of the freezer to thaw. Often the 10 pound of meat is on sale. If it has already been weighed, you won't have to guess how much to take out of the freezer. And you won't eat more than you should for a meal.
