Home-cooked meals seem to be harder than what they really are, especially when you’re starved for time plus you have a hungry family to feed. Earlier this year I realized I was spending a small fortune on takeout and I wasn’t really happy with what I was feeding my kids. I wanted to change that and find a way to not stress out about dinner.
As a busy working mom, I’ve discovered most times it really is easier and quicker to just prepare a home-cooked meal than to order takeout. I know dialing a restaurant that delivers gives us a break once in a while, but even in the best scenario, it will take them at least 20 minutes to prepare your order. A homemade meal takes a lot less to prepare when you plan ahead and keep a well-stock “Cantry” — a pantry filled with canned foods like canned tuna, beans, tomatoes, corn, peaches, pineapples…the list goes on and on! I know the vegetables and fruits are flavorful because they were canned at the peak of ripeness. Added bonus: when you cook at home, you know what is on your children’s’ plates and it’s easier to ensure they are getting the nutrition they need.
Here are a few ways cans get you cooking in less time than a pizza delivery would take.
