Simple Meal Idea - Simple Meal Idea Solution for When You Need a Fast Dinner!

What if I told you , you didn't have to cook dinner tonight?

And what if I told you, you aren't going to spend any money?

Today, I'm going to explain to you how you can do that. You can even do it tonight!


I would like to introduce to you..... PANTRY NIGHT!

I will NEVER cook more than 5 times a week. No matter what! Momma just isn't doing it! 

I do have a meal plan and we plan 5 meals a week. The other two nights can be either: leftovers, plan to eat out, or PANTRY NIGHT! Here is my definition of a pantry night:

" A fend for yourself night, you know what the options are, feed yo self!"

Ok, so its a little bit more organized but, that's the idea! 

We have a list hanging up in our cabinet that when it is pantry night, they can go look at the list, and pick something they want to make from there! This also helps me make sure I always have the ingredients to pull off a PANTRY NIGHT WITHOUT STRESS! 

Some ideas for your pantry night could be:

  • Quesadillas
  • Homemade Ramen
  • Bean and Cheese Burritos
  • Frozen Waffles or Pancakes
  • Smoothies / Smoothie Bowls

So , having the PANTRY NIGHT list hanging in my cabinet really helps. It helps make sure that everyone knows what pantry night dinners are available and also helps me make sure I have everything on hand to have a successful night off from cooking!
