The Secret to Stree-Free Weeknight Meals

Family Dinnertime & Feeding Kids

surviving dinnerYou also might want to check out my Surviving Dinner series for menu ideas that can work on crazy busy weeknights.  Let me be clear:  Surviving Dinner is not about cuisine and, frankly, it’s not about getting perfectly balanced meals on the table.  Most days I try to cook a decent meal, but when I’m making my menu plan for the week there are some nights that I know will be crazy.  I don’t have a lot of time to spend prepping, cooking, and cleaning on those evenings.  Often I can plan to serve something from my freezer, but other times the freezer is a little more lean.  Surviving Dinner menu plans have minimal dirty dishes, pots & pans, and prep/cooking/clean-up time.  Some require some planning or preparation the night before, but many don’t.

If you don’t have time to browse them all, here are my tried-and-true faves:

Fajitas & Refried Beans

Creamy Pesto Pasta

Sausage, Shells, & Peas in Alfredo Sauce

Peppers, Onion, & Sausage

Chicken & Dumplings

Grilled Chicken, Veggies, & Flatbread

Ground Turkey Gyros

{Heartier} Chicken Noodle Soup
