This is your new home, and all of your possessions are now with you. You’ve just moved into your new home, and it’s time to get started on your new life. But before you can start cooking up some delicious meals, you need to figure out what you want to eat. And that’s where meal ideas come in. Which foods fit into which categories? What might be the best way to start off? Check out this list of 8 easy meal ideas for the first week in a new home.
1. Start with Simple Frito Pie
First, go to your local grocer. Buy a bag of Fritos and some salsa. Are you ready? Now it’s time to heat up some tortilla chips in the oven. Take them out when they are warm and put them on a plate. Next, open the bag of Fritos and dump them into the tortilla chips. Add some salsa on top (that’s right, ‘taco’ or ‘Frito pie’ is not an actual word). This is your new dish: Frito Pie!
2. Easy Chicken Strips
You can use this dish to make chicken strips, which are a popular food in the United States. Take some chicken breasts and cut them in half lengthwise. Now you’ll need some breading. You can use flour, but what if you don’t have any? Use some plain breadcrumbs instead. Mix the breadcrumbs with some seasoned flour and make a mixture that is the consistency of thick pancake batter. Now dip each piece of chicken into this mixture and put it on a tray.
3. Spaghetti with Meat Sauce
This is another popular dish in the United States which you can easily make at home. All you need to do is buy spaghetti and meat sauce. The meat sauce can be different for each meal. But for this particular recipe, you’ll need ground beef, onions, and garlic. So go ahead and add these ingredients to a skillet. Cook the mixture until it is browned on top. Then you’ll need some pasta. Buy some spaghetti noodles, cook them according to the package instructions, and then drain the pasta in a colander while still warm.
4. Hotdogs and French Fries
This is another popular dish that you can easily make at home if you live in a small country town or city with only one restaurant (like me). Making this dish is very simple: buy hotdogs, fries, and some ketchup. Now you can put the hotdogs on a plate, put some fries on top of them, and then pour some ketchup over everything.
This dish is very simple to make at home: buy ground beef and combine it with breadcrumbs, eggs, salt, and pepper. Now you have your ingredients for meatballs – just shape them into balls and fry them in a skillet until they are browned on top. Once they are done cooking, take them out of the skillet and put them on a plate with some marinara sauce.
6. Potato and Onion Soup
This is my favorite soup to make at home. All you need to do is get some potatoes, onions, and some milk. So go ahead and chop the potatoes into small pieces and put them in a pot with the milk. Then you can cook them until they are soft. Once they are done cooking, please put them in a blender and blend them until smooth like a creamy soup. You can add salt and pepper to taste as well!
7. Fish Tacos
These tacos are very easy to make at home: buy some fish (like cod), some tortillas, salsa, and cilantro leaves (or any other kind of leafy green). So go ahead and put some fish in between the tortillas. Now you can top the tacos with salsa and cilantro leaves.
8. Chicken and Rice
You can easily make this simple dish at home: buy chicken, rice, and some salsa. So go ahead and cook the chicken in a pot with some water until it is no longer pink in color. Once the chicken is cooked, take it out of the pot, drain it on a plate, and put it in a bowl with rice and salsa. You can add salt to the taste as well!
You can easily make delicious, healthy, and cheap meals at home. You can easily make them all, and they will taste great! I hope that this article helped you on how to cook with the ingredients that are available in your kitchen. Enjoy!
