Now that the weather is finally warmer, I can not begin to tell you how this excites me. With school ending next month, those busy late nights of cooking dinner in the kitchen, and hustling to get everything done in a day’s time, will be a thing of the past. With Summer beginning soon, the excitement is only building up in this household. Oh yes, those lazy summer days are almost upon us and you know what?
I can not wait!
One of the things that are a must and is so helpful to me during Spring and Summer is preparing quick and easy to make recipes. I truly don’t believe there is not a mom who doesn’t. I believe that most of the time we just want to kick back like the rest and enjoy that deserved extra time. But when you have a family of 5 with different appetites it can make it stressful to think of ideas on what to serve. My family loves when I’m creating one bowl meals and you know what? Who am I to pass judgment, it does save this mom time in the kitchen so it’s a win-win for me.
Today I thought it would be fun to share some of our favourite one pot meals.
