So I still find myself in survival mode. Jim Gaffigan says…”having a 4th kid is like you’re drowning and someone hands you a baby.” While it might not be quite that bad… sometimes it feels that way. I keep my head above water most days…and on the days that it feels like I’m being pulled under come dinner time, I turn to my list of fast five meals. My list of meals that take me less than 20 minutes to get on the table. Because that’s usually all the time that I’ve got to work with…homework, baby needs to eat, baby needs diaper change, toddler spills over a flower pot, toddler brings the hose into the house, 5 year old can’t get his shoelace un-knoted.
You get it. Come time for the hectic “witching hour” having an arsenal of these quick meals that you can almost throw onto the table is the only way anyone will get anything to eat.
The idea for Fast Five Meals comes from the Savings.com coupon classes…where attendees are encouraged to keep a list of 5 meals that your family enjoys, all of which can be made in less time than it takes to order a pizza! If you’d like to find a class in your area, visit the coupon classes page.
Do you have a favorite meal that you can quickly throw together?
(Besides Mac n Cheese, or Spaghetti perhaps!)
