We do a good job at eating home as much as possible; but when you have a full time job and three busy teenagers you just can’t help but eat out every once in a while. Well, more like at least once a week in our case. I try to plan meals so that when I cook, we would have enough leftover for the next day. Even with some planning, I get caught without a meal ready somedays. Often these times come when I’ve worked late or the kids had some after school activity that takes us past dinner time.
These are the times when we either pick up something to take home and eat or just eat out and save ourselves some clean up chores before bedtime.
More often than not though, I depend on quick and simple meals that can be prepared in less than an hour. Here are a few of our favorites.
All these dishes really can be prepared under one hour. What is your favorite quick meal (bought or home cooked)?
