For some reason, when people think about homemakers they think of hard-working women. Women who never take a break from their daily chores, who hunt super-markets every day for the best deals, and who prepare the tastiest dinner for husband and kids.
But that’s not true at all! At least not in my case. I certainly have my days of lazing around. And I do take breaks, especially when I am home alone.
And for those lazy days, I have a number of dinner ideas (sort of my go-to menu for lazy evenings). I used to think of these options as something negative, and I never shared these with anyone. But then this blog is all about sharing my experiences, and if it makes someone’s life easier, it should be blogged about.
So if you are feeling like you want to lay on the couch all evening, and you also don’t want to order junk, then here are 3 of my favorite dinner options. (Frankly, I’m not sure if you can really call it dinner. But, yeah, whatever!)
Curd & Sugar
This one’s from my childhood days. Back in my home country India, we used to eat this a lot. Here, in the west, a lot of people don’t know what Curd is, and many others confuse it with Yogurt. So, if you don’t know what Curd is, then read this and this. And see this to understand how to make curd at home.
Anyways, the point is, I always keep some curd ready in my refrigerator for my lazy days. If you don’t have curd, then you CAN use Yogurt instead. And when the evening comes, all I have to do is mix some sugar, and I have one of my favorites.
Not only does it make you feel full, it is also sweet and kind of gives an ice-cream-like pleasure. So do give it a try.
I believe Omelettes are one of the most under-estimated dishes. When it comes to creativity, there is no limit to what you can do with it. And their nutritional value doesn’t even need a mention here, does it?
I use 2 eggs to make an omelette, add some salt and pepper on top, and use it as a base. The rest depends on my mood. Sometimes, I add a simple spinach leaf, but other times I add ketchup, cheese, tomatoes, corn or just anything that can go on a pizza.
Baked Sweet Potato
This definitely goes in my top 3 lazy-dinner options. And I have a few cheats that make it taste delicious!
First, I poke a few holes in the sweet potato, and apply some oil to it. I also like to add Cheese (mozzarella and parmesan combo), and some butter too. And when it is ready, some herbs on the top.
Wow! My mouth is watering already. I’m making sweet potatoes tonight. Let me know if you have your own recipes for your lazy days. I would love to add some items to my lazy-menu.
