Condo Chronicles: Update—Meals + Food

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!

  1. Your recipes look yummy and wholesome. Warm meals are so nice especially during these cold winter months. I like that you mentioned that these recipes are easy to make! I’m inspired to cook more during these upcoming weeks. If I do end up cooking more, I need to remind myself to take some photos 🙂

  2. When my husband and I got married we were sure that some well-meaning Aunt or old friend of the family would get us a crockpot as a wedding gift. Isn’t a crockpot gift from a distant aunt you haven’t seen since you were 6 mandatory? Nada. As a joke we decided to get one for ourselves — our wedding gift to us — with the intention that we would never use it. Come to find out its a handy tool and it’s nice to know that many years later it’s the one wedding “gift” we still use. 🙂
