Terrific One Pot Meals
There's nothing better than a one pot meal. Why you might ask. Well, for starters, they're easy and quick to make. In this day and age anything that makes your day go smoother is a good thing. One pot meals are known for their nutritious and filling qualities. Not only that they provide you with an easy way to get more vegetables in your diet.
At the end of a long day when you need it the most you'll be glad you decided that a one pot meal was the way to go. You can bake them, slow cook them or cook them on top of your stove. You can do most of the preparation the night before for the stove or oven versions that way when you get home all you have to do is take a few moments, put the finishing touches and let it cook itself. Meanwhile you can sit and have a cup of coffee or tea, or take a long relaxing shower. If you choose the slow cooker method, well, you have it made. All day while you are working you dinner will be bubbling. When you open your front door that evening the aroma will make you glad you chose this method.
