Moving can make your already busy life even more hectic. Instead of worrying about what you’re going to cook for dinner, you should have some easy meal ideas for those first few weeks in your new home.
We’ve cooked and eaten all of these, and boy oh boy, they are tasty.
These three recipes are sure to be winners:
Crockpot Roast Beef (via Food.com)
This is a game-changer. It’s so easy and only uses a few ingredients. All you do is put a chuck roast, one packet of ranch dressing mix, one packet of au jus mix and one stick of butter in a crockpot in the morning and cook it on low. Your tastebuds will thank you come dinner time. It’s a crowd favorite.
Baked Potato Soup (via Paula Deen)
Who doesn’t love baked potatoes? Just put a one frozen bag of shredded or cubed hash browns, two cans of chicken broth, one can of cream of chicken soup, ½ cup of chopped onions and ⅓ tsp of ground black pepper in the crockpot and cook on low for the day. Then, 30 minutes before you’re ready to eat, add in one softened 8 oz. package of cream cheese. Garnish your bowl of soup with bacon, green onions and cheese. This is a “going back for seconds” kind of meal.
Pepperoni roll-ups (via Taste of Home)
If you have kids, they will love this one. All you need is your favorite crescent rolls, pepperonis and mozzarella string cheese. Grease a baking sheet and preheat your oven to 375°. Next, open the crescent roll can and cut each triangle into three smaller triangles. After that, cut each string cheese into three or four pieces, roll the pieces up with a pepperoni inside one of the triangles and bake for 10-12 minutes. Sprinkle a little garlic salt on top when they’re done and get some marinara sauce to dip them in. Delicious!
While these are all great recipes post-move, they are also great once you’re settled in. Enjoy!
