“What’s your favorite go-to dinner dish for the family?”
And you know what? If it’s quick and easy, that’s even better! Here’s a list from some of World Moms to start the conversation…
Karyn Van Der Zwet of New Zealand writes:
“Home-made hamburgers. Not my favourite as such, but quick and the kids love them.”
Polish Mom Photographer of California, USA writes:
“We did invest in a slow cooker and it’s been an awesome time save. It makes delicious meals (like barbecue pulled chicken or chili) with almost no effort. Recipe for BBQ chicken here. ”
Hamakkomommy of Japan writes:
“My family loves Japanese-style curry. I love that they eat a dinner full of veggies with no complaining!”
Jennifer Burden of New Jersey, USA writes:
“Lebanese rice and meat – I can make it all in one pot and everyone will actually eat it! Ground lamb, brown rice, chicken broth and pine nuts.”
Mrs. P Cuyugan of Philippines writes:
“Spaghetti with meatballs is always a winner in our house. :)”
Salma of Ontario, Canada writes:
“We make all kinds of quiche when we are short on time. I also love a quick stir fry (shrimp/chicken or veggie).”
mamawearpapashirt of Singapore writes:
“Easy chicken soup with macaroni and carrots. Ooh and mushrooms (Chinese). :)”
Dee Harlow of Virginia, USA writes:
“My 15 minute go-to meal: broiled salmon, steamed broccoli, brown rice.”
Kyla P’an of Massachusetts, USA writes:
“My favorite and fastest one pot dish is Turkey Tacos: ground turkey, black beans, frozen corn and a can of chopped tomatoes. Season with cumin and chili powder serve rolled in soft tortillas with shredded cheese. If you need something green, sometimes I throw in some spinach too.”
EcoZiva of Brazil writes:
“I’m a terrible cook! 🙁 When I’m alone with the kids I just whip up a green smoothie with some oats or something else filling (as in bananas, mint, oats and honey, for example). When hubby is home, a fast favorite for them is yams mashed with butter and scrambled eggs (a variety of yams we have here that are not sweet). I prefer them with cheese though.”
Eva Fannon of Washington State, USA writes:
“I echo Polish Mom Photographer about using a crock pot. As a working mom – it’s a HUGE time-saver for me. I set it when I leave for work in the morning, and whatever I put in there is ready when I get home from work.
I use it a lot to cook beans. Since we eat beans at least three times a week, I avoid canned ones (due to BPA). I cook the beans in the crock pot, make a little sofrito (garlic, onions, peppers, tomato, cumin, salt, pepper, sautéed in olive oil) when I get home from work, mix it with the beans, and dinner is ready!”
Carol @ If By Yes of British Columbia, Canada writes:
“My husband does the cooking, but spaghetti is our usual default dish!”
