New House Food Ideas

Moving into a new home can be complicated – looking at and dealing with realtors – but once you get into your new home you’re going to be one thing: hungry. Here are a few thoughts for making easy first-night in meals
Pasta: The easiest thing to make on your first night is pasta – all you need is some noodles, a few herbs, cheese and some ripe tomatoes. It’s a healthy alternative to pizza and you really only need to find one pot and a knife to get things rolling.
Fish: If your refrigerator’s working, grab a piece of salmon or tilapia and keep it cool – marinating if you were able to save a bottle of dressing. Some greens or a potato and you’re ready to eat a healthy, well balanced meal.
Fried Rice: This one’s easy – all you need is a few eggs, some rice and some pre-chopped veggies from the grocery store. This is a great time to get a wok, too, and if you make enough you can eat off the leftovers for days!
Enjoy your new home!
