Dinner for Lazy Mamas

I was so wiped out the other day, I couldn’t even get it together to heat up a frozen meal from our freezer stash. But I had lots of fruit and cheese on hand! So I pretended like it was the good ole days (read: pre-baby)¬†and we were out for a night on the town at Cafe. I set up a cheese plate and declared it our dinner!

I have also been known to make scrambled eggs and bacon for dinner as well. There is hardly a moment, where eggs and bacon are not on hand, in my house. Mmmm, bacon!

What do you when you need to whip up dinner?

    Breakfast for dinner is always an option in our house! And I always have a frozen pizza on hand. Btw, we prefer to call it "energy challenged"

      I ditto!

      When I’m “energy challenged’ we keep the cheap totinos pizza’s on hand or do breakfast! My kids LOVE having breakfast for dinner and its supper easy and fast and the ingridiants are always those you already have on hand.

        My husband loves those pizzas! They are so bad for you though! I have been trying to figure out how to do my own homemade frozen pizza for my energy challenged nights, but haven’t come up with a good one yet. And I love breakfast for dinner!

          im not sure if these can be frozen but it is my go to dinners on nights that im out of energy. i will do pizza but for the dough i use pita bread. then just add sauce and toppings (whatever is on hand) i also will put leftover veggies like from a stir fry in bags to freeze and will use them on my pizza. they cook very fast and almost no clean up and they are alot heathier that store bought frozen pizzas

    I could eat cheese and crackers all day!! Yum to water crackers and aged cheddar!! I love plain old gouda, blue, and usually have a jar of pesto on hand to accompany those baguette slices!

    Eggs on toast or sweetcorn patties is a favourite for us. Also we have what I like to call ‘Scrambled Omelet’ once a week on by busiest day. This just means whisking 2 eggs per person in a bowl, plus 1/2 cup milk per person and 1/4cup grated cheese per person. Then we grate/dice whatever is on hand. Last night it was carrot, zucchini and tomato. Spread this in the bottom your frying pan (we have a non-stick scan-pan so no need for oil) and pour the egg/cheese/milk mix over. Then as it’s cooking, just ‘scramble’ it with a spatula ’till its cooked through. I like to add a little salt and pepper and fresh parsley also. It’s a really quick, healthy, filling meal. Sometimes we have it on toast.

    I use this yeast free pizza dough recipe and it’s super easy and fast! http://www.cooks.com/rec/view/0,1926,142176-238207,00.html I make my own sauce (puree one can of organic diced tomatoes for 2min then put in a pot on medium heat. Add oregano, 1 tsp sugar, salt, pepper, dash of red pepper powder, 1 bay leaf, onion powder (optional), garlic powder (optional) if you don’t add garlic powder use 2tsp minced organic garlic. Simmer until thickened and spread on pizza crust, add toppings and bake on 400 for about 18 min. SO easy! I like to put fresh organic spinach on mine and Horizon Organics shredded cheese.
