One of our editors even fancies himself an amateur gourmet cook. Not sure exactly what an "amateur gourmet" is, but whatever. The grilled basil-slow cooker chicken alfredo tortellini pizza with avocado, capers and roasted red peppers he brought in last week was a big hit.
I'm not listing this site for its recipe database, however I do want to share it for conversion chart purposes. It's hard to find a handy conversion chart for weights and chicken alfredo damn delicious among other charts and tools available at the site.
That incident has sparked a wave of creativity for me. One day last week, I made Ramen noodles (again without using the flavor packet) and added a can of mixed vegetables and a can of fat-free cream of chicken soup. This turned out to be a chicken and cream noodle soup that my kids devoured.
Single guys have a lot of other options out there. Making chicken fingers is also one of my favorite meals at home. It's not terrible hard to defrost slow cooker chicken alfredo and cook it up. Meatloaf is another option that doesn't take a huge amount of time to prepare. Sure, there are nights when I just throw some fish sticks on a tray and mac and cheese on the stove. It takes some creativity though to keep from eating the same meals over and over again. Variety is the spice of life, right? So a single dad needs to think in terms of finding meals the children will appreciate and like on a repeat basis. I don't know many kids that don't enjoy sloppy joe's. First of all, it's sloppy.
Making the pasta separately is more work than just using the crock-pot. However, taking the time to boil your water and cook the pasta just right gives you perfect noodles when you need them. This technique is not appropriate for all recipes, however.
I would recommend the Freschetta Singles Brick Oven Fire Baked Crust Portabella Mushroom Spinach Pizza to anyone loves pizza and also has no dietary restrictions.
