With back-to-school on the horizon (I go back Monday!) I’m trying to build up my arsenal of quick, easy meals. Actually, I prefer that every meal I make is quick & easy, but it’s of the utmost importance when time is limited! Here are three easy meals I’ve made throughout the last week!
The most difficult part of this recipe for me was tracking down frozen pizza dough! I have no idea why it was so difficult to find, but I ended up finding whole wheat pizza dough at Wegmans.
Quesadillas have always been one of my go-to’s! In fact, when I lived on my own, it was something I made quite frequently, but usually I stuck to cheese quesadillas. These days, I realize how important it is to make sure I incorporate protein into my meals, so I’m not ravenous 30 minutes after eating!
First, I fired up my Crate & Barrel griddle (which has a completely flat surface on the other side; love that it’s double-duty).
I topped the quesadilla with some plain Chobani instead of sour cream. I loved that I could faintly see the grill marks on the outside of each quesadilla!
Trader Joe’s Lobster Ravioli (For One!)
Once a week, Chris & his band mates work on their music in a studio outside of Philly, which means I’m on my own for dinner that night.
While I’ve been trying to stay away from frozen/pre-made meals, I love Trader Joe’s lobster ravioli!
The list of ingredients is long, but at least I can pronounce everything!
These cook up quickly – in about five minutes – & I like to top mine with vodka sauce & some parmesan cheese.
Something to keep in mind about this product, however, is the serving size. There was plenty for me to enjoy for dinner (served with a side salad), but there would definitely not be enough to serve both Chris & myself.
If you’ve made it all the way to the end of the post, I’ll reward you with this gratuitous picture of Stewie, resting on his new “birthday” toy.
