My friend E. is the mom of 2 toddlers. She’s also pregnant w/her third child and has just been put on bedrest. Yikes! Thankfully, her husband works from home so he can help out, but the biggest challenge is meal ideas. Here’s what she has to say:
I am drawing a blank when it comes to suggesting simple meals for J. to make.
Breakfast is easy. We’ll do cold cereal, fruit, yogurt, toast, etc.
Lunch will be sandwiches, soup, salads (like egg, chicken, garden, etc.), chicken fingers, hot dogs, mac and cheese, etc.
Dinner is where I am drawing a blank. I need stuff that is really quick and easy to prepare. He is not interested in spending more than like ten or fifteen minutes preparing stuff. I guess that what we need is more lunch type ideas to eat at dinner.
What relatively easy, kid-friendly meal ideas can you share? Do you have super simple crockpot recipes, cold meal ideas, or quick stovetop meals? Please share them in the comments and help E. and her family out so they have one less thing to worry about as she concentrates on cooking a baby bean!
