I have always been a meal planner, but I have been working to simplify things even more when it comes to cooking our meals. Enter, this pin from Redfly Creations.
What? You can make your own pre-made mixes? I would have never thought to do this. I am not a fan of all of the added preservatives in mixes, but I'm also not a fan of spending a ton of time in the kitchen.
So far, I have made the tortilla mix. This was my first time making tortillas, and I'm pretty sure it turned me into a tortilla snob. They were so good. I am looking forward to making the rest of the mixes to keep on hand.
One other thing I have been doing is working on having a few extra meals stocked in the freezer. I don't plan to have freezer cooking days, or to keeps tons of meals prepared ahead of time, but having a few meals on hand will be a good thing for those days that turn super busy. This recipe for Hamburger Noodle Casserole from Taste of Home is a new family favorite.
