This is an update to my original Meals + Food post from September.
So I’ve made it over six months living on my own and I’m still alive! And I haven’t given myself food poisoning!
A few months ago, I started a Google doc in my condo folder called “Easy Meals to Make” that I’ve been updating as I make new meals or find myself repeating meals because they’re easy to make. It’s become a great resource for those days that I’m not quite sure what to make.
I have it categorized by “lunch” and “dinner”. The lunches are then broken down into options to make for when I go into the office and for when I’m home. I like to meal prep a bit on Sundays if I know I’m going into the office so my lunches are already made and I can just grab them out of the fridge in the morning. Some of the dinners include pasta and salad, chicken tacos, meatball grinders, and a dino nugget salad—which is basically what you’d expect (I only use the dino nuggets because they’re easy to cook in the air fryer and it’s still technically breaded chicken).
I got a Crockpot for Christmas, which I think is the most adult thing you can receive. It’s a 4.5 quart one, so it’s big enough for me to make something with leftovers but isn’t huge. So far I’ve made:
I’m looking forward to making more warm and yummy meals, especially during the winter. If anyone has any good Crockpot recipes, let me know!
