So much of our time is scrambling around trying to come up with ideas for dinner during the week.  And when you think about it, 5 out of 7 dinners during the week are rushed and at times stressful, but they don’t have to be.  There are so many easy and delicious recipe options out there to choose from, including those that take less than an hour to make.  With a little planning ahead of time with your shopping lists, you can stock a fridge full of ingredients to make dinners all week long that won’t leave you feeling uninspired!  I’m a big fan of that!

Uninspiring dinners ready in less than one hour?  Yes please.  Here are 10 ideas to get you started…
