Re: What is your go-to meal when you just don't feel like cooking?
I find it helps me immensely to have the meat portions cooked and in the freezer. Then it takes just minutes to layer a lasagna or throw together spaghetti, casserole, tacos, etc. I usually brown 2 or 3 lbs of hamburger at once and freeze in half pound portions. I poach chicken in the crockpot and have that shredded in individual portions, same thing with pork roast so I can throw together pork nachos or BBQ pork sandwiches.
I also make it a point to spend some time on the weekend to cut up raw veggies (cucumbers, peppers, carrots, etc.) and steam some veggies (sweet potatoes, carrots, green beans).
Then on busy nights I can grab a protein, boil pasta if I want, and set out veggies and whatever fruit we have on hand.
