Tips for getting dinner on the table fast!
Make a meal plan
Be realistic with your schedule when making your meal plan. Ideally, you'll plan out 5 dinners in a week, leaving yourself to eat leftovers or quick meals the other two days. Having a plan in place with recipes selected ensures that you know what you're cooking and have all the ingredients to make dinner, whether it's batch cooking a bunch of food or cooking a fresh meal each night.
Use the right tools
Many times we don't think of the short cuts we can take when it comes to getting dinner on the table each night. Slow cooker meals are great - you just dump in all the ingredients and come home to a cooked meal! The Instant Pot is great for dump and go as well, and one pot and one skillet recipes help you do less dishes each night. Don't be afraid to use the gadgets in your kitchen to help you!
Cook and prepare ahead
A great way to cut down on cooking time each night is to prepare some ingredients ahead of time or even do a little bit of cooking at the beginning of the week. Try cooking and shredding some chicken breast, or cooking some rice or quinoa in your rice cooker so that all you need to do is reheat or add to a recipe when the time comes to cook dinner. It'll make dinner seem like a breeze!
