Scrambled Eggs and Toast. I buy 5 dozen eggs at a time and lots of people can't figure out why I need so many. I'll tell you why. Just to feed my family this meal it takes 18 eggs and 3/4 of a loaf of bread. I usually throw some greated cheese into my eggs and sometimes I'll slice up and fry some potatoes in butter with garlic powder and salt. Start to finish..20 minutes.
Homemade Soup and Fried Bread. This is the reason why it's so great to keep homemade broth in the freezer. I thawed some beef broth in the microwave, transferred it to a pot and added 2 fresh sliced carrots, some leftover green beans, a handful of macaroni noodles, a little bit of V8, another handful of yellow split peas and some spices. Out came a thick and hearty vegetable beef soup. I buttered some bread, grilled it in a frying pan and sliced it into triangles to serve on the side. Start to finish....20 minutes.
Grilled Tuna or Cheese Sandwiches. I don't always have cheese on hand so grilled cheese is the rarer of the two but when I make one of these the kids are thrilled. I just butter both sides of the sandwich, layer the filling in and then grill them up. We usually slice fruit on the side or if we're lucky I make tomato soup to dip them in. Another 20 minute meal.
What do you make when you're original plan isn't going to cut it?
