1 Hour to Cook & Eat

1 Hour to Cook & Eat
Posted: 10/24/2007 09:10:49 AM
I am a working mother with 2 very active children. 3 nights a week I have one hour to cook & feed my family before we are off, making it very tempting to stop at the fast food places. Any ideas or recipes you can share with me would be greatly appreciated!!

We have a nice collection of Easy Weeknight Meals where you will find many recipes that might help you out on those busy nights. It also includes some slow cooker recipes that can be made up the night before or in the morning and cooked throughout the day so it is ready and waiting for you when you get home. You will find these recipes at the following location: http://www.recipetips.com/recipes-collections/week-night-meals-recipes.asp

Hi Megan, Being a working mother its really difficult to manage work and home at times. But these days lots of people are focusing on the recipes which can be prepared in just 10 minutes or less. And there are plenty more recipes for the weeknights too. You check these recipes if you want - "http://www.knorr.com/article/category/245618/what-s-for-dinner-" "http://dinnerrecipesideas.wordpress.com/2013/06/20/what-is-for-dinner-in-10-minutes/" These recipes are not just simple but quick too. Hope it helps :)

I have gone to a couple of different businesses where you can make 6-8 meals in about 2 hours for approximately $200, depending on some of your choices. Everything is ready and waiting - the correct measurement in each of the ingredients. This works out pretty nice to have these on hand for rushed evenings. Most meals do have to be thawed in the refrigerator for a day before using. My two sisters and I also made our own meals and exchanged. I would recommend going to the business as it turned out to be more expensive and very time consuming to triple the meals.

Hi Megan, Another idea that you might want to consider is a thing called "Once-a-month cooking". I have not tried this yet myself, but have purchased the book and plan to get together with two of my friends to do this. The book gives you 5 meal plans, 3-two week plans and 2-one month plans so your meal selection is varied. It also gives you everything you need to know to prepare the meals. I heard about this idea on the radio station that I listen to through a program that they were airing. If you would like to listen to this 2-day broadcast you can find it at www.family.org, on the left side of the screen click the "go" button by daily broadcast, then on the right side of the screen click on "more recent broadcasts", then scroll down to October 24 & 25. I have received my book and can't wait to get started!!

I found this idea and plan to do some day, but just haven't yet. Buy hamburger when it is on sale in big packages. Brown a pound at a time, put in freezer bag and throw in freezer. Then when you want to make something quick, just take the meat out and reheat to make tacos, spaghetti, whatever, a lot faster.

Have you tried to 'make a head meals'? you can make up to five meals ahead of time, and freeze! Unthaw in the fridge the night before and warm up for a quick and healty way to revive the family at dinner time.

Kale soup crockpot


I make a "vegetarian" kale soup that has beans, diced tomatoes, onions, carrots, kale and water. I prefer to use a lot of kale but because I have been putting it on top, it doesn't "sink" so I can't use as much as I would like.

recipes that I can print


It would be nice if you would not put the ads at the end of a recipe. It takes a lot of ink to print those ads.
