Quick and Easy.....Oh the Love!

This is the meal I have not been able to make for six weeks.  A quick, simple, no-thought, done-in-moments kind of meal.  It's not that I think pre-prepared chicken schnitzels are so magnificient, it's more that they have not been an option when I have had it up to *here*.  Like at the end of a day in a Prep classroom, for example.  I have cooked almost every single meal, apart from one weekend away where that was impossible.

And so tonight we re-enter the world of my version of not cooking.  A packet of chicken shnitzels that take 20 minutes in the oven.  The only prep?  Putting them on an oven tray and putting them in a preheated oven.  The coleslow is those four ingredients.  I toss together the precut coleslaw (whole bag), grated tasty cheese and pineapple which I cut into small chunks (the tins of chunks are too....chunky).  I mix some of the juice from the tin with some mayo so it's thinner and it all gets tossed together. 

So easy.  And that's what I've missed.

Dinner is done!

As I'm trying to eat a more veggie- and grain-based diet, I've learned that it's hard to make meals without cooking everything from scratch. Since I work at home, it's not too much of a problem, but there are days when throwing some ravioli in a pot of boiling water (or frying up some hamburges) and calling it dinner is a lovely thing!
