As a JW I had an elder and 2 kids to feed. Because of the elder we always had to be at the hall early - not an easy thing between homework and dinner.
So meeting nights I had a set schedule of things to cook and serve that were easy to make, eat and clean up after. My ex is Italian so pasta was a staple in our house except on meeting nights - couldn't have red spaghetti sauce splattered on clothes. There was rarely enough time to eat and dress after dinner to rush to the meeting so I had to be careful what I served
- Casseroles were good - leftovers easily wrapped and refrigerated.
- Tuna with noodles
- Macaroni and cheese
- Shepherd's Pie
- Chicken and rice as long as it wasn't barbecue chicken.- that red sauce again
- Stir-fry as long as I had everything prepared ahead of time
Non-meeting nights were for the pastas, barbecues, ham, with vegetables and potatoes or rice.
But when I left it was so nice not to have to stick to some kind of meeting night food. I get to eat what I want when I want and if I have to go out I just dress afterwards.
I can't be the only one who did this
