Question: What to Eat During a Move?
Over our time together, Betsy and I have averaged a move about every 18 months.
Oddly enough, our upcoming move this weekend, which will hopefully be our last move for a very long time, will be the first of our moves when we will both be here!
Even though I’ve moved a lot over the years, I still struggle with how to eat during a move. At some point you pack up your kitchen and it will most likely be a week or two before you are settled and ready to start cooking in the new home.
I’ve struggled with this a ton over the years!
I think there are a few meals that you can have at the ready if you plan accordingly or you can just budget for lots of delivery pizza!
Meals that Work For Moves
The key to meals that work well during moves is finding stuff that you can make in advance, but also stuff that is portable since you’ll probably be running around a lot. Also, at some point you’ll be light on plates so anything you can eat with your hands is a bonus!
Here are five dishes that I think would be great to have on hand if you’re planning a move!
When I made this recipe, I thought of it as a quick weekday breakfast, but it would be awesome for moving also. All you need is a microwave, a bowl, and a plate.
It’s actually a super-tasty breakfast burrito for how quick and easy it is to make.
These wraps are packed with flavor and protein, but the nice thing is they keep really well so you could make a batch of them and store them in the fridge for a few days with no problem at all!
This is one of my favorite things to have around all the time and I also frequently make this for others when they have big, busy life changes (like babies, etc.). The lasagna freezes perfectly like this and is super-easy to reheat.
Some sweets will be needed, no doubt, during the move. Make these in advance. Weirdly, I think they are better at room temperature or even cold which doesn’t go for most brownie recipes. You can wrap these up individually and they will be ready to go when you need a sugar pick-me-up.
This is my favorite post-move beverage. It’s pretty easy to toss together and immediately takes the pain out of the move!
Mostly, I wanted to write this post so I could ask you!
