Which wouldn't be a big deal, except I pretty much have to eat dinner before I workout. Or else I'm a grumpy, irritable nightmare. It's not pretty. In my defense, I eat lunch at 11AM, so by 5:00 or so I. am. starving. And I'm definitely a grumpy-when- hungry girl!!
So for these occasions, I have a fabulous go-to dinner plan that needs no prep, is super quick, and requires almost no clean up. Plus, it's SOOO yummy!
Obviously, any dinner that goes from having nothing prepped to a meal on the table in 16 minutes is going to get some help from packaged products. BUT, I find this to be a cheap and healthy meal, which is really all that I ask for from a weeknight dinner. Prepped from scratch is nice, but on such a short amount of time, most anything I prep from scratch will be barely past the conceptualizing stage in just 16 minutes.
So.....my go-to Meal on crazy nights is some sort of frozen tilapia or salmon fillet, parmesan couscous and the steam-able veggie of my choice (aka whatever happens to be in the freezer). All of these items can go from the pantry or freezer to done in just a few minutes.
Excluding takeout, can you get dinner on the table in less than 20 minutes? I'm sort of proud of the fact that I have it down to such a science. What's YOUR go-to dinner on nights where you don't have much time and have nothing prepped?
