“Food, glorious food!
Hot sausage and mustard!
While we’re in the mood —
Cold jelly and custard!”*
What do you eat during Nano? Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, or as Dr. Who prefers – fish fingers & custard? Do you make dinners ahead of time, freezing meals for a quick pop in the microwave or reheat in the oven? Do you tell your family to fend for themselves and rely on what’s in the cupboard for food to keep you going? Maybe you buy frozen dinners on sale and hoard them for November, filling your freezer with boxes. Whatever you do, now’s the time to give it some thought and perhaps, stock up.
You’ll want to include your favorite writing rewards on that list as well, especially if it is food related. (Mine are dark chocolate covered coffee beans!)
My go to website for fast meals is usually FoodNetwork.com. I use it for everything from cookies to breads to full dinners.
I prefer dishes I can cook with little fuss and less cleanup. One pot meals are my favorite, but my family prefers to have their peas separate from their potatoes and meat. (Shepard’s Pie anyone?)
On the other hand, they love anything that is easily picked up and taken with – even dinner. I’ve been known to make these easy mini quiches in my muffin tins, eating a few right out of the oven and freezing the rest for late morning rush-out-the-door days. You can omit the crust for a tasty, on the go frittata!
Whatever you plan on eating, there’s only one month left to get to it!
