heateat_titleBeing a single mom is difficult in many ways. I have the full responsibility of taking care of not only the boys but also the house and the finances. Another one of those difficult things that single parents face can also be mealtime.

My boys are picky eaters so many of the meals that they eat are pretty basic — chicken fingers, macaroni and cheese, and of course peanut butter and jelly. None of these things are meals I want to eat on a regular basis so I usually end up making meals for myself. This also means that I have a lot of leftovers.

This means that by making one meal it can provide several days worth of leftovers.

What is particularly handy is that I can make a basic chicken dish such as barbecue chicken and portion it out over several days. I can then pair it with different sides, such as rice or pasta, or even eat the chicken in a salad. The possibilities are endless!

I used to hate washing two sets of containers when reheating foods in the past — the plastic container I had the food in, and the microwave-safe container to reheat it in. This is something I no longer have to worry about.
