Thanks Jo for this great tip!
When I am lazy and tired but still have to make dinner, I turn to a tried and true recipe—Chicken Soup! You can basically use anything you have in your pantry. I never have all the staples—celery, carrots, onion, etc. So I usually just throw in whatever I have.
Today I threw in some chicken legs, vegetable stock, water, carrots and onion. I also put in some cracked pepper and some Turkey seasoning—hey I said it’s whatever you have on hand!
When it seems just about ready I’ll throw in some rice and whatever frozen vegetables I happen to have and dinner will be served—even for my 8 month old! Throwing together whatever items I have on hand and throwing those recipes out the window usually works for me every day, and allows me to put together a complete meal from my family. Because sometimes, it’s just easier not to follow a recipe..
