For those of us in the middle of the fall season where EVERYTHING MUST BE APPLE AND PUMPKIN, here's my Megan-simple Hot Spiced Cider recipe!
I have a nice simple pork chops and black beans recipe, taken from The Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook, for people like Megan. It might cheat just a little, since it calls for jarred salsa, but it's easy, fast, good and rather healthy. And front start to finish it only takes 20 minutes.
Here's a recipe for Megan-simple taco beans with rice. This is something that will please everyone, veggies and meat-eaters alike, and it's SO FREAKING EASY. It also stores and saves well, so you can dish up three or four portions and stick them in the fridge and you have lunch for part of the week.
The biggest problem with breakfast is that it happens in the morning, where my top priority is getting every last second of snoozing in a warm-bed time, and condensing the necessary elements of morning routine into about 15 minutes from bed to out the door to work. My answer to THAT problem, for pretty much my entire working life, has been children's cereal. I felt like it was time for a change, to grow up and have a food I could eat without shame in front of others. Which brings me to… Microwave Oatmeal Choc-Banana Mugcake!
