Tuesday nights are kind of a train wreck at my house. My husband usually has to work, so I'm in charge of making sure the big kid has homework done, and then there's track practice and bath time. Somewhere along the way I've got to make sure everyone, including my fairly picky little kid, gets something to eat. Actual cooking? That's just not happening.
The truth is, there are some nights when the thought of having to create a meal at the stove just seems like too much. The good news is, there are actually a lot of tasty no-cook options out there that hit all my check marks: quick, healthy(ish), and kid friendly.
We pulled together 15 great ideas -- from other moms -- for the next time you want to give your stove the night off. I tried #1 the other night and my kids declared me "best mom ever," so I'm calling this list a success!
