As much as I love summer and the kids being home, I have got to say it gets very hard at times. The kids are always in the house and go from room to room making sure it does not stay clean. Sound familiar? I feel like all I do sometimes is clean the house leaving me very stressed and tired and absolutely not wanting to cook dinner. Everyone has got to eat though and since this responsibility typically falls on my shoulders, I am always looking for mealtime solutions especially in the summer months of chaos that are easy. Read on to find out my top 3 easy solutions (Pizza is my favorite) for mealtime for busy moms.
Crock Pot it
Yes your mom used to use it all the time for the old faithful roast but nowadays there are no shortage of awesome recipes on Pinterest or online of awesome easy solutions for mealtime. I was surprised of all the amazing and easy meals you could cook in your good ole slow cooking crock pot. The best part is you can set it up the night before or morning of and not worry about it all day! Dinner will be served in 6-8 hours and will make mouthwatering aromas all day to smell while you are cleaning house. Meals like Chicken Parm, Spaghetti and Meatballs, Jambalaya and Lemon Chicken are just a few of the things I like to whip up in my crock pot. Believe me, you need to break out your crock pot and use it.
Since I do stay so busy during all the summer chaos with all the cleaning, playing with the kids and shuttling them all around town; I love being able to order from one of our favorite restaurants and have it delivered! Many restaurants have their own staff delivering or if they don’t, you can use Uber Eats or Grub Hub to get it delivered. It’s easy to order on the restaurants website, call, or even use the Apps for Uber Eats or Grub Hub. Many restaurants will let you order off the kid menu when you deliver so this will help cut down on costs plus the portions are usually just right. One of my favorite meal time solution is ordering from a local Italian restaurant that we have here because it is so good!
Stock up on Frozen Pizza
Yes you heard me right! I also make sure we are stocked up with Red Baron frozen pizza because, let’s face it, everyone loves it and it’s easy! My kids and hubby can make it by themselves if I happen to be gone for the night and it goes great when we have movie and game family night! It brings me peace of mind at mealtime knowing it is in the freezer and I don’t have to mess and fuss that night!
A better crust makes a better pizza and Red Baron Classic Crust pizza is not too thick and not too thin! Our Fav is Pepperoni but they have 11 different flavors available to help you master that summer mealtime chaos. Check it out in your grocers freezer today!
Enjoy the rest of your summer y’all and don’t forget to stock up on the frozen pizza! It will be gone before you know it (summer and the PIZZA!
