It seems like families get busier and busier as time goes by. We may find ourselves with less time to cook and enjoy meals together as a family. Eating out often can be expensive, so here are some links to MU Extension guide sheets with tips when you have little time to cook.

No time to cook

Packaged mixes like au gratin potatoes, macaroni and cheese or flavored rice and pasta can easily be turned into healthy and satisfying meals. The table on this handout provides additions and substitutions for how to make changes.

Get four meals from 12 foods

With these 12 foods on hand, you have what you need to make four quick, tasty and healthy meals. Use this handout to plan almost a week’s worth of different meals, while using the same ingredients.

What I have on hand

This handout provides an easy-to-make casserole recipe with any number of ingredients that are on hand. The recipe can incorporate different combinations of grains, protein, vegetables, sauces, flavors and toppings.
