And by the way, “when you just don’t feel like cooking” is code for THE WHOLE SUMMER.
I think we can all appreciate that summer is the time where sitting outside on a hammock with a sparkly drink and watching dogs and kids play in little splashy pools is far, far superior to standing over the stove trying to get creative about what we eat for dinner.
The problem, for me, is that while I have little to no interest in meal planning and cooking right now, I still want to eat GOOD food. Like, if I could exclusively eat food that tastes happy and fresh and fun while also exerting little to no effort for planning, prep, or dishes, that would be great.
Option A: get takeout for every meal.
Option B: embrace the low-key nature of the summer season and hit up one of these tried and true lazy person recipes instead.
Listen, this is not meant to impress you….
