Living with Mr. Peng, I feel like it’s inappropriate if we eat mac and cheese or cereal at night (which I totally eat when I’m alone). I don’t want to eat out, but man, cooking can get annoying and expensive 5-6 days a week (we usually go out to dinner 1-2 times a week). Do you have any pantry-ready meals that you like to cook? I’m not really one who likes to plan meals for the week (def. the most economical way to shop, I know). I like to decide what we’re eating as I get hungry for something. What are some ways you jazz up "bachelor" meals? I typically like using canned pasta sauce and adding roasted veggies or something to jazz up pasta a little bit for a 10 minute meal. I also LOVE using the slow cooker, but we try not to eat meat that much. Grilled fish is easy, but it’s expensive, so we don’t do it alot.
Possibly my favorite weekday meal is grilled vegetables with olive oil and balsamic, eaten with crusty bread and some salumi. Yum!
We also eat a lot of frozen pot stickers 🙂
What are your go-to weekday dinners? Would love some ideas!
