The other day I came home late, hungry and had no desire to walk to the store – knowing it would take at least another hour before I had a meal ready to eat. Since I live above a pizza place, I know that two years ago – I would’ve made a quick call and have my dinner within 15 minutes.
Nowadays I plan ahead. Not for a specific day – instead I make a big batch with meatballs and place the container in the freezer. It takes less than 15 minutes to boil the pasta and fry the meatballs. I guess you could even heat them in the microwave. The cost is a fraction of the pizza, it contains less calories and I don’t even have to leave the apartment to get it.
Looking for something even easier? See my post on smoked salmon and riced potatoes.
