Teachers are some of the busiest people I know and frequently sacrifice doing things for their own well-being (like making home-cooked meals) in order to make the best lessons and classroom environment for their students. In an attempt to manage my work-life balance, force myself to get better at cooking and also eat a proper meal each night, I’ve decided I’m committing myself to cook 3 meals each Saturday morning to last me through the week. Each evening, I’ll quickly make a side to go with it (steamer veggies, minute rice, fruit, etc.). I hope that posting these compilations of recipes will help other busy people of the world.
Total Active Time = 30 hrs
This week is mostly a leftover week. I have frozen about half of what I’ve cooked for the last few weeks, so now it’s time to eat it up.
I have leftover:
Recipe #4: Spicy Thai Noodles
Difficulty Level: 1/5
Time: 30 min (5 min prep, 25 min cook).
I made a lot of tweaks to this recipe (Mr. T doesn’t have the spice tolerance that I do), but it really was a winner and it was SO easy! I’m bringing this for lunch this week!
Since I made so many tweaks, I’m including my copy of the recipe that has been all marked up. I also added some chicken to “beef up” the meal. 😉 I forgot to mark it on the recipe, but I didn’t strain the pepper flakes out of the oil. I’m not fancy enough to have a strainer small enough to catch the pepper flakes. I figured I’d just use less, since I wouldn’t be straining it out. I will definitely be making this recipe again! Easy and tasty! I think it’ll taste great cold, too!
