Easy Dinner Idea

By the time Thursday comes around I am so over making dinner. Even after making a weekly menu and having all the items to make a big dinner, sometimes I really just can't get myself to want to cook a big elaborate meal. On those days I have a few really quick go-to dinners that let me have a break from so much cooking but still give my family a well balanced meal.

Meatball Sandwiches- I always try to keep a bag of ready made meatballs in the freezer. They are great to add to a quick pasta dish for some protein. Meatball sandwiches are a great dinner. Grab some hoagie rolls, sliced provolone cheese, a jar of marinara sauce and frozen meatballs. Dump the meatball and sauce into a pot and cook until hot. Slice open the rolls, and put in those provolone slices, add some meatballs and sauce. You can even sprinkle with some grated parmesan and DONE. Serve this was a ready made salad and BOOM... dinner.

Chicken Tacos- Tacos are always a big hit in our house. Most times we make up our own meat and even cook the shells ourselves. As you can imagine it's a lot of work! Sometimes when a day calls for tacos but I just can't do the whole sha-bang, I go for quick soft chicken tacos. Grab a pack of corn tortillas, a pack of shredded cheese, and a ready-made rotisserie chicken from the store. Just shred up the chicken, heat up the tortillas, grab some condiments and the cheese and put it all out on the table. Serve with some ready made salad and DONE!

Happy Thursday!
