Welcome back to school to all the kids out there! For the parents, welcome back to the struggle! Weekdays can become especially busy this time of year; sports, school, clubs, work, etc.. Sometimes, we just don't have the strength to make dinner! So check
out these quick and easy options that will help your nights go smoothly!
1. Hamburger Helper
One of the easiest boxed meals ever! Only milk, water, and meat of your choice required! The rest is in the box! Switch it up by using ground chicken or turkey instead of beef. Or check out other versions like boxed stroganoff!
One of the easiest meals known to man, salad! Vegetarian? Opt for beans as your protein! The best part is you can choose how much work you want to do. Buy a head of lettuce or a bag, cook a chicken breast or buy precooked chicken, dice tomatoes or
buy pre-sliced fruits and veggies...up to you!
3. Frozen Pizza
The king of the easy meals! Preheat oven, bake, ding! Done! What can be easier?
4. Frozen Fish
Cousin of the frozen pizza, meet fish sticks! A kid's favorite! Don't worry, you don't have to get sticks. Filets are available as well! Not a fish person? Try frozen shrimp or other seafood! From the deep seas of your freezer to your oven!
Ah, nothing is quite as satisfying as a meal you make by throwing different food in a dish! And you make enough to feed at least 4! There are so many casserole recipes out there with all different difficulty levels; you can choose whether you buy ingredients ready to use or prepare them yourself. Whether you cook your meat or use some you bought from the supermarket, casseroles are always a hit!
