Quick and Easy Meal Ideas

In my opinion, one of the hardest things to learn is how to cook for yourself, or for yourself and your partner/housemate, on a daily basis. It is not feasible to try a new recipe every day and old or well-known recipes can get boring. Many recipes call for a lot of preparation and ingredients.

We've found that we like to mix quick cooking with recipes, sometimes across the week, sometimes across one meal. So a multi-step salad can be paired with leftovers or a box mix. Or a pre-cooked chicken can be mixed with canned refried beans for burrito night and then used for chicken salad the next day. Or a complex main dish can be paired with a bowl full of raw baby carrots.
