Many evenings it seems easier to go through the drive-through than to throw something together for dinner. Especially after both my husband and I have had long days at work. However, I don’t really like eating out and sometimes the problem is simply lack of inspiration or new ideas to try. So here are my favorite go-to dishes for busy evenings:
- Breakfast Skillet
- Slow Cooker Soups (loaded baked potato, cheeseburger, taco)
- French Bread Cheeseburger Sandwiches, French Bread Sausage Sandwiches, French Bread Pizza (You can make all sorts of creative meals with a loaf of French Bread! And at our Wal-Mart, they’re only $1.)
- Baked Potatoes (You can just stick them in the slow cooker all day and they’ll be ready at dinnertime!)
- BBQ Beef Biscuits
- Bubble Pizza (meat & tomato sauce topped with biscuit pieces and baked in the oven)
- English Muffin pizzas
There are all sorts of things you can throw together in a few minutes, especially if you follow my freezer cooking method.
To really make sure there are options in place for dinner, I always try to have a menu plan in place. Or, if you don’t want to make a menu plan yourself, eMeals is a great option. They have several plans to choose from and they send you a grocery list and recipes each week. I’ve found it super helpful!
