Isolating from mean people
Has anyone tried Morningstar’s Incogmeato burgers? If so, how do they stack up with Impossible or Beyond Meat?
Because I am not working at the moment, I suddenly seem to have plenty of time so I am experimenting with preparing various new food. The success rate is not very high, I would say about 50:50, but at least I am not bored with my food and don’t have times when I don’t know what I want to eat. (The only problem is that I never know ahead if it is going to be eatable).
This is us. Even though I use Home Chef for three meals, we've gotten bored with them. I dont know if they are experiencing a shortage of beef and pork, but most of the selections are chicken. I think three weeks ago my husband rebelled. We are skipping next next three weeks. So now I gotta find replacement for chicken.
I end up making SO whatever kind of meat he wants such as pork or sausage. I make myself something else. We eat the same sides, such as salad, potato or vegetables. This works very well and everyone is happy.This is us. Even though I use Home Chef for three meals, we've gotten bored with them.

Its summer, and growing up in Nebraska we have steaks once a week. He wants burgers, I'm not a big burger person (at least not now).
Its grocery day. I have no idea what to fix, that we might actually eat.
Because of our usual life style - more eating out during the summer since the weather is nice and we can walk to restaurants - my go to foods are more winter food.I do have some standby "quick" meals (the only problem is, I've made all of them several times recently and need something new). Some of mine are:
-- Store-bought cheese ravioli with tomato sauce & frozen vegetable (this one, I only make when I have some of my own homemade tomato sauce in the freezer)
-- Goya black bean soup, served with rice, chopped onion & tomatoes, grated cheese, lime juice, frozen corn
-- Skillet pork chops, baked sweet potatoes (hardly any prep, although they take a while to bake), frozen veg
-- Skillet fish, quinoa or rice side, frozen veg
-- Quesadillas with beans, rice, cheese, tomato, red pepper, onion, lime
-- Occasionally, grilled cheese with Campbells tomato soup
I like cooking too, but yes, every once in a while I just reach a dead end in terms of meal planning.
@made_in_canada Care to share any of your relatively quick regular meal ideas?? This is exactly the kind of thing I need right now! The next couple weeks are going to be hot & humid here, and we currently don't have air conditioning in our kitchen, so I can't bear the thought of trying any long or prep-heavy recipes.
Because of FSU and the Bare Naked Ladies, it will always be Kraft Dinner to this American.Much as my husband and I love to cook and I could tell you we're eating gourmet meals every night, sometimes we're just too tired or it's too hot to think about turning the oven on, and that's why last night we split a box Kraft Dinner (Mac n Cheese for Americans) in front of the tv. I did add bacon, cherry tomatoes and green onions
Salsa chicken is one I do quite often. If I'm really lazy I just do chicken and salsa and forget about opening up a can of beans and measuring out corn. Sometimes I put it over rice, other times in a tortilla with sour cream and cheese.
Maple dijon drumsticks is another stupid easy one that everyone likes.
Peanut sesame noodles is slightly more prep but still very quick and easy and really tasty. I just don't always remember to keep rice noodles on hand because I don't use them that often.
My husband and I split dinner cooking chores by alternating weeks. We each are responsible for our own breakfast and/or lunch except for weekends. On weekends, I prepare breakfast on Saturday for both of us and he prepares breakfast on Sunday for both of us. We each do our own grocery shopping. It's nice having that whole week off to let someone else do all the work of having to come up with dinner, and you also don't feel like you are cooking every night because you aren't.
This looks really good, thanks! I will probably try making it next week...
Why would you try to convince them of something that isn't true?I finally got my sourdough starter to work and can bake bread. For someone who rarely had more than the smallest bag of flour in the house not that long ago, it's a pretty big accomplishment Now to convince my husband and kids that a whole loaf of bread is not an afternoon snack
