I am not a gourmet chef like my friend, Johanna, who can whip up a Martha Stewart meal with her eyes closed. Our family survives on basic meals. You know the ones I'm talking about - tacos, spaghetti, chicken casserole, etc. However, I'm bored. I don't have the desire to be a Martha (even though I benefit from Johanna's incredible cooking), but I do need a bit of variety - easy variety.
Here's our basic meals - tacos, spaghetti, chicken casserole, grilled chicken, a few crock pot chicken meals that go with rice or noodles, roast with veggies, pinto beans (if I can remember to soak them overnight), etc.
What are your basic meals that work for you every time that aren't super time consuming, but do the trick for your family?
