We get it—getting dinner on the table is hard.
No matter if you’re a busy family of four or are simply having a draining week at the office, the last thing you’re probably thinking of is cooking dinner. You reach for the phone to place another order at the takeout joint around the corner, and they recognize your voice on the phone, leaving a sense of guilt in the pit of your stomach. Another night with takeout on the table when what you really long for is a delicious, home-cooked meal.
If you’re like most, you probably think a decent home-cooked meal takes hours of planning and prepping, only to be scarfed down in minutes. It doesn’t have to be!
