Are you a big stir fry fan? I sure am. I make stir fry for lunch at least once per week. I either cook a chicken stir fry or a shrimp stir fry. Both stir fries are quick and easy to prepare, which is great at lunchtime.

If you love shrimp and stir fry, you’ll love this shrimp stir fry. The flavoring is very simple – all you need is chicken bouillon (or chicken stock) and soy sauce.

As far as vegetables, I either buy a bag of stir fry vegetables or use what I have in my fridge such as, onions, carrots, broccoli, and mushrooms.

Here is my recipe for shrimp stir fry.

Do you need a fun idea for your kids’ lunch? I have a simple lunch idea for you. All you need is flat bread, meat, and cheese. You can use different meat and cheese each time.

Meat and cheese kabobs are very fun to eat. My girls, Katie and Sophia, loved eating the kabobs. I placed deli turkey meat and cheddar cheese on top of flat bread. Katie’s kabobs also had pepperoni on top of the turkey. I melted the cheese and then cut the flat bread into bite size pieces.

Here is my recipe for meat and cheese kabobs.

We all have days where we don’t have much time to prepare a meal. What do you normally do? Make a frozen pizza, leftovers, eat out, etc? There are times that I do eat out instead of cooking something. Especially if I have to go somewhere that evening, such as grocery shopping. But there are other times that I buckle down and say no to eating out.

I love to have options of meals to cook that are quick to prepare. One of my options that is very easy to make and doesn’t take much time is Mexican food. Some of my favorites are chicken enchiladas, chicken tacos/salads, and chicken quesadillas.

I add toppings inside of my chicken quesadillas. I love having the additional flavor to the quesadillas plus I’m also getting vegetables in my meal.

Check out my recipe for chicken quesadillas.

What do you love to make during the Summer for lunch or dinner? When it is very warm and hot outside, you don’t want to turn on the oven and get the house very warm. I either try to make something that requires only cooking on the stove or no heating at all.

One thing that is perfect on a warm, hot day is a salad. What I love about salads are there are many different possibilities for the type of salad you can make. I love making salads with spinach, romaine lettuce, or carrots. And the toppings on the salads can be anything you want. You can load your salad up with lots or vegetables or even fruit. Whatever your heart desires. As far as meat, deli meat or chicken tastes great. If I’m making a side salad with a meal, I skip the meat.

Do you love having options of simple and easy meals to make for dinner? There are days that I don’t have time or don’t feel like making a complex dinner. Do you have those types of days? I totally do. Especially after a long day. I have a great healthy chicken sandwich idea for you.

I created the marinade for the chicken with what I had in my fridge/pantry. I put ingredients together that I thought sounded good together. The flavor of the chicken turned out great. I melted mozzarella on top of the chicken and added spinach and a slice of tomato to the sandwich. For a side with the chicken sandwiches, add fruit such as pineapple, strawberries, and raspberries.

Here is my recipe for raspberry Italian chicken sandwiches.

What makes it quick and easy? We use frozen pre-cooked chicken and a packet of brown rice you can cook in the microwave for 90 seconds. Plus you can also use leftover chicken or vegetables from the night before.
