There probably aren’t too many among us who aren’t busy and find ourselves at points particularly pressed for time.
At those point it would be particularly easy to head out for a meal out. Those meals in my view tend to be a bit of a waste – it’s not like most folks go out to a great restaurant for an awesome meal at these times… it’s more likely you’d head to a mid to low grade restaurant and plunk down between $7 and $30 for a “whatever” meal. What’s the point of that?
Instead there are some great last minutes meals that can be pulled together that are not only healthy but taste great – especially if you mix them up a bit.
Take a simple grilled cheese and shift it up by making it with the whole wheat baler twine bread add ham and spice it up with dijon mustard and hot pepper rings. You get a satisfying meal for a fraction of the price and with a fraction of the effort that it would otherwise take to drive yourself to a restaurant to wait for service. Plus, if you’ve cracked open a bottle of wine or tapped the keg of beer you can begin refreshing while you’re cooking.
