Last weekend, I went on a writer’s retreat with a friend. Since our goal was to spend as much time as possible writing, I needed plan for meals that were simple and quick to prepare.
Our menu went something like this.
Breakfasts consisted of yogurt and Cinnamon Chex.
Lunches were fresh, raw vegetables, luncheon meats (turkey and salami), Colby jack and pepper jack cheeses, rice cakes, and grapes.
Snacks ranged from dried banana chips to chocolate. (Heavy on the chocolate, in my case! :))
But dinners were my favorite. Friday night was easy. A roaster chicken from the local grocery store, canned corn and a bag of instant mashed potatoes.
Saturday night was the one time, I actually spent time in the kitchen. Still, the meal I prepared was my go-to meal. Alfredo Sauce with peas, carrots and mushrooms over Gluten-Free Fusili. It was hot, yummy and gave me just enough of a break that I was ready to write for another two hours after the dishes were done.
So what’s your go-to meal when you need to get in some serious work time?
