Is there anything better to cap off a busy week (and to kick off the weekend) than an order of takeout? Usually by the time the clock strikes 5 on a Friday evening, the last thing you want to do is spend your precious time cooking supper (and cleaning those darn dishes).
Believe me, I get it.
Takeout can absolutely have a place in any home as a special treat - not a weekly (or daily) habit. Plan for days that you'll pick up take-out, try not to rely on it as a mealtime crutch. It's a slippery slope that will not only impact your health goals, but may prevent you from saving your money for things you really want (hello vacation)!
Instead of ordering in tonight, give these spicy peanut Thai noodles a try. The noodles cook in your slow cooker for about an hour and a half, take that time to unwind after your busy week. After supper, throw the slow cooker insert into your dishwasher and the dishes are done!
