Quick Meals to Make in a Jiffy

This week my husband was away, so my daughter and I were on our own when it came to dinner.  I came up with a few ideas that were satisfying and quick, plus I included some below that were previously posted here on the blog.    
Pizza and Salad: If you don’t feel like cooking, pick up a few slices of pizza with veggies on top and make a salad at home.  That is exactly what we had on Tuesday night after Payton’s dance class.   

Veggie Saute: Cut up some of the veggies in the fridge and sauté them in a bit of sesame oil and soy sauce.  Top with sesame seeds and serve with 5-minute brown rice. 

Breakfast for Dinner: Why not?  Whether you prefer scrambled eggs or pancakes, what could be easier than whipping up your favorite morning meal?  Add turkey bacon for extra protein...

Grilled Cheese: Who doesn’t love a grilled cheese sandwich?  Try grilling crusty bread with Brie cheese, arugula and a smidge of raspberry jam for a different twist on the old favorite. 

Easy Red Sauce with Pasta: In a saucepan, saute onion and garlic in olive oil until translucent.  Open a large can of San Marzano tomatoes and crush them into the onion/garlic.  Bring to a boil, and then lower heat to a simmer for at least 30 minutes.  Add a few tablespoons of butter, plus salt, pepper, and sugar if necessary.  Serve over pasta.   

For other ideas, check out these recipes that I previously posted...

I would love to hear about any quick and easy meals that you have when time is limited.   Have a great day!
