Shortcuts

Sometimes, life requires taking short cuts…at least my busy life does! Whenever I buy groceries on the weekend, I have great intentions of making amazing meals, but schedules change and my priorities and attention shift to other things. For the past 3 days, I’ve intended to make something “good” for breakfast, but I’ve just now managed to stick something in the oven; you see, we’re not cereal people…not that we don’t eat it, but it’s just not filling.

As much as I would like to make every meal from scratch, it’s just not achievable, at least at this point, so what I just put in the oven is my shortcut of the week — Martha White cinnamon streusel coffee cake ;).

I feel like managing an entire week’s worth of meals is my biggest challenge. What about you? What is your biggest hurdle, and what are some of your shortcuts?

  1. You know, I’ve tried making a calendar of which meals to make on which night, but it never ends up working out the way I planned. So I feel that in the end, I’ve wasted my time planning. My best go-to shortcuts are usually pasta, Campbell’s cream of mushroom and Bisquick. Those three things make my cooking life less stressful. =)
