Quick Weeknight Dinners ~ 35+ Easy Meal Ideas

Life gets hectic and it can be really tough to get dinner on the table every night. It seems that deciding what to cook is half of the battle and finding something everyone will like is even harder. These family pleasing recipes are just what you need this week.

Top 5 Tips for Quick Meals:

  1. We love to grill whole chickens, rump roast or a smoked turkey breast over the weekend to have on hand for meals throughout the week when we don’t always have time to cook.
  2. If you are cooking ground beef or sausage, cook double and refrigerate or freeze half for the next meal.
  3. I am the worst at meal planning but if you can come up with a plan, it definitely saves time. There’s no standing at the pantry staring blankly with no idea what sounds good for dinner.
  4. Some of the prep work can be done ahead. Keep chopped onions, bell peppers and other vegetables ready to go in airtight containers in the refrigerator.
  5. I like to buy block cheese because it stays fresh longer, so I shred up enough cheese for 2- 3 meals and store it in deli containers or zip top baggies to save time.
