I made the perfect meal tonight! A meal where everyone ate at least a little bit of everything served, and it only took 30 mins. Stooooop it, right?! I promise it’s true!
It all began by realizing at 3pm that I never put the chili in the crock pot 🤦♀️. I’d been craving cornbread muffins, and I love the chili/cornbread combo. Once I knew that dinner would not be ready by 5pm, even if I started immediately, I had to improvise.
I realized that the only part of the chili I was actually craving was the bratwurst. So I threw some cornbread muffins in the oven and bratwurst on the grill. I served it with some sliced cucumber, hitting all of the major food groups, and voila! A meal that everyone ate.
This doesn’t even happen when we order pizza. Someone wants cheese, another pepperoni. Someone wants salad, another buffalo wings. It’s not as simple as we would expect, and it isn’t necessarily cheap! This meal was about $12, which is pretty good for us. It was gluten-free and dairy-free, and we still had leftovers.
I would love some other ideas for quick meals that the whole family loves! Please comment below with some of your favorites 😍.
**Also please let me know if you are interested in some more gluten-free/dairy-free meals. It’s not as hard as it seems, and our tummies feel so much better 🙌**
