Last night upon returning home from vacation and picking up the dogs, I realized just how bare my pantry is at the moment. I dreaded the thought of having to get back out and go to the grocery store. Rest. I needed a wee bit of rest and food. Looking around my kitchen, I realized I had the following ingredients: egg noodles, frozen peas, frozen roasted chicken meat, parmesan cheese, and sliced almonds. I quickly realized I could use my go to pasta recipe to make a quick and simple dinner. I also realized what a smart idea it is for me to continue to roast chickens and keep the shredded meat in the freezer. Tonight, I think I might have chicken tacos. Between tacos and this pasta, I can feed myself for the next few days until it is time to leave for conference. Woot woot! Maybe I can even avoid doing too much grocery shopping until I come back from conference. Which would be a great thing! Then I can focus back on home and hearth at that time.
What things do you do to make dinner prep easier?
Be the bento everyone!
