I love a quick, healthy, cost efficient meal. Especially after a long week of homeschool and sporting activities. As a family of six we cannot eat out a lot. Right now hardly at all because of a few extra expenses in our budget. Most of my dinners need to be very efficient, quick, and frugal.
Quick Healthy Meal Includes:
These are my must haves for a quick healthy meal….also I need to be able to fix it and cook in 30 minutes or less. If it can’t be fixed in use 30 minutes or less then I need to find a meal that will let that happen. Friday night is my easy meal night because it is basically the end of the work week. But, even though I need for the meal to be quick and easy, it must also be healthy. Not pizza again. Pizza every Friday does get old.
Tuna Melt Casserole:
- 2 cups egg noodles
- 3 six ounce cans of tuna packed in water, undrained
- 1/2 cup finely minced onion
- 1/4 cup stick of butter, melted
- pepper, salt
- 3 1/2 c. milk
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup grated cheese.
- 1 bag of frozen peas
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Grease a 9×13 inch casserole dish.
- In a large bowl, whisk together all ingredients and pour into the dish.
- Sprinkle cheese on top.
- Bake until casserole puffs up and the cheese has melted. Approximately 20-25 minutes.
Since I am a homeschool mom of boys the meals need to be healthy, yet filling. As a side dish I serve iceberg salad with ranch dressing. If each child finishes timely without a lot of playing around (yes we laugh and joke at the table) then they get some kind of dessert.
After a long day of either homeschool, work, or housework does your family eat together? Don’t let dinner preparation take away from special table time….try the quick tuna melt casserole tonight!
