I see you. I see you working your butt off all day long. I see you putting on a smile and solving problems, reading books, telling stories, listening to stories, changing diapers, cleaning, basically doing all the things, and all day long. It doesn’t matter if you have a job outside the home, you work from home, or you spend all day with your kiddos. That doesn’t matter, because I know that no matter how you fill your days, your days are full. You hustle all day long and slide into bed like you were stealing home base.
And I know that often, dinner time is a struggle. The whole family is hungry and tired, and pretty much over the day. And sometimes you just want to join the toddler who is laying on the floor crying.
What you really need is more delicious and healthy dinners that are ready in under 30 minutes, that don’t dirty every dish you own, and that your family will actually eat.
I know this because I, too, want the same thing. It’s like the magic trifecta of “delicious – healthy – quick”. It seems elusive and unattainable, doesn’t it? But guess what? I got your back.
I scoured the whole damn internet for you and found the BEST one pan recipes that take 30 minutes or less, include no funky ingredients, and that your whole family will love.
So save this post to Pinterest, pour yourself a glass of wine, and relax a little. You got this! (well, dinner at least – I can’t really help you with the toys in the living room…)
