Weekdays 3:00PM-7:00PM

When my wife and I started working from home last March we began cooking every night like most people.  What other option was there?  We enjoyed it at the time because it was something else to focus on and it kept our brains busy.  The “fun” part was going to the grocery store.  We almost always had to call an audible and buy whatever was close to an ingredient we needed because of the food shortage.  Because of my wife’s creativity we were able to work with what we had and actually made some delicious meals!  For the next couple of months we were basically cooking every night.

As the rest of 2020 went on, we got a little fatigued from the nightly cooking.  I was certainly tired of constantly cleaning pots, pans and bamboo cutting boards.  So, to cut back on dish duty we’d eat meals that only took about 10 – 15 minutes to make.  There wasn’t near as much prep time involved and the cleanup time was way quicker.  We’d make bacon and egg sandwiches, throw hot dogs in a pan, cook a frozen pizza, or stuff two avocado halves with canned salmon and throw them in the oven.  I HIGHLY recommend.


According to a survey conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Idahoan Foods, these are the five quickest meals made in 10 minutes or less:

  1. Egg Sandwiches.
  2. Grilled Cheese.
  3. Hamburgers.
  4. Hot dogs.
  5. Microwave dinners.
