Food ideas

[deleted account] ( 6 moms have responded )

I'm going to be moving out (finally) and I need ideas for breakfast, lunch and dinner and I would love some ideas. I have a bunch of basic ideas like eggs, pancakes, sandwiches and stuff like that but I need more. If anyone has an idea I would love to hear them and if its something fancy tell me how to make it. Thanks :)

I use You can look up anything you want and get wonderful ideas. You can ask for easy to hard recipes as well as specific items in a meal. i.e. beef, chicken, broccoli, rosemary, thyme, beets, tomatoes, etc.

A favorite for breakfast and snack is smoothies. I throw a few bananas, a cup or so of plain yogurt, and whatever frozen fruit and veggies are in the freezer into a blender. This summer I plan to make a huge batch of smoothie to freeze into popsicles for healthy snacks. My daughter doesn't grow tired of smoothies.

Try wrapping your eggs in a tortilla shell or in between two pieces of toast like a sandwich. We also tend to eat a lot of oatmeal and sausage and fresh fruit for breakfast.

Lunch around here usually consists of easy sandwiches, quesadillas, leftovers from last night's supper, homemade mac-n-cheese, or homemade chicken nuggets. I find it easiest to rotate out these things so we only eat each once a week or so. Plus each of these things are quick and easy to make in the middle of a hectic day.

Supper has evolved in this house! I used to be able to only make a few things...but made it a goal to learn a new recipe once a week. Some have been great and others have been flops. Over time I've collected more recipes than I'll ever need. Don't worry about doing it all at once. Take your time with it. Google recipes. The supply is endless!

Just anything really. I'm not the best cook but I will try anything. I live with my parents and they cook dinner so I'm not used to picking out dinners, I'll help make it sometimes. I do my sons breakfast and lunch but I don't really know many things to make him and I want him to have a big choice instead of the same few things

It depends what you like to eat! Breakfasts are easy good wholegrain cereal or yoghurts and fresh fruits, lunches sandwiches and soups and rolls and for dinner, spaghetti bolognese, meatballs, shepherds pies and meat and vegetables. What sort of meals are you looking for Italian, French English let me know and I would be happy to help.
