My all-homemade-all-the-time efforts have been a bit strained these days. It's just so hard, and takes so much darn time, ya know? I'm thinking we are going to just settle in as a 70/30 family. 70% homemade, 30% whimsical store-bought foods with mystery ingredients. Some days may even be 60/40, or whatever.
But I have a few rather inexpensive ways to make cooking and clean up easier, without sacrificing food quality. I'm so excited!
Baskets with wax paper liners. Can you stand it?!
My kids were like, "Mom! Wow, they have these at restaurants!" And so does this rock star mom.
(Don't mind the Taquitos. This was a 0/100 meal, clearly.)
Alright, so these gems are nothing new, but I have rediscovered them and bought a pallet of them at Sam's.
(My dishwasher is singing my praises!)
Aluminum Foil Pans.
These honeys are a huge blessing when it comes time to throwing a lasagna in the oven. And when you're cleaning up, you're like, "Oh my gosh, I don't have to wash this dang pan! Yay for me!"
That's all the handy hints I have for you today. But don't you worry, I plan to hit the Food Service section at Sam's Club pretty hard next time I'm there.
Here's to making our jobs just a little bit easier, moms!
