You swore off any type of labor after your first delivery.
But variations on Thai noodles every night is taking it a bit far.
NoTakeOut, a website started by three NYC parents, provides nightly menu plans that busy moms and dads can prepare.
Unlike other recipe sites, NoTakeOut incorporates fresh, seasonal ingredients in its daily shopping lists, outlines pantry must-haves, and gives a step-by-step game plan that starts the minute you walk in the door. Past dinner selections include pasta with spring peas and zucchini salad and mac ’n’ cheese with a lovely carrot salad.
Add to the mix a Food for Thought section, which offers tips on all things edible, and you’ll be cooking up nutritious family dinners in no time.
That’s a promise they deliver.
