What do you make for dinner when you’re in a hurry after work? For every busy parent, it’s hard to beat a few easy weeknight dinner ideas your kids will really, truly, love.
And boy do I know it because I just started a giant new consulting job that actually requires me to go to an office now. With desks and chairs, lipgloss and a jarring absence of yoga pants.
Oh, and without small kids.
It’s a big adjustment, only 60 days in the making, but already I’ve learned a LOT about how to make a fast dinner after work. By asking all of you!
To prepare, mentally and you know, culinarily, I posted a question on Facebook a while ago: What do you make for dinner when you’re in a hurry after work?
Then I tried all of your suggestions, wrote them up and present the whole group to you right now including a few from other blogs written by moms who I trust with those tricky 20 minutes before dinner is served on any weeknight. Just in case you’ve ever tried to make dinner in a hurry…
Here they are, the 10 fast weeknight dinner ideas your kids will really love.
