F is for Food

Friday, April 8, 2011

I was going to write about Friends. But so far I've seen three A-Z Challenge posts about friends. I can never ever thank my friends enough for just existing, but I also feel ridiculous writing another post that has been written so much already. And I really don't have much to say on the family-front. What other F-words do I have in my life right now?

Food. I love cooking. I love eating. I miss both. If I had my way, I'd cook a meal or two every day, and baked goods whenever we ran out.

Unfortunately, I don't have enough time to do that. I can cook here and there at random, based on how much time I have, and how much energy. I made french toast last night, when I got home at 10PM. Quick, easy, delicious, and relatively healthy.

Does anyone have any recipe suggestions for foods I can make that take less than 15 minutes? If I could make a meal in only 15 minutes, I might be able to do it more often, which would be good for my mental health (I love cooking) good for my budget (I'm living off a lot of expensive microwave food) and good for my health (see: microwave food).

Sorry I was one of the people who wrote about friends.
But look forward to your next post.

No, no! Nothing wrong with writing about friends. I just wanted to give readers a whole variety of things to read! Not JUST friends.

Top Ramen - 3 minutes start to finish! ;) Just kidding. I actually can't think of much right now that takes 15 minutes or less to make, even Hamburger Helper takes a bit longer than that (though not much longer!).

Yeah. Just about everything takes too long. I found a great list of "10-minute meals" but it turns out those were more about prep-time, than actual cook time, and I am not at home long enough when I'm awake to actually cook.
