August is a hectic and crazy month in our home. When we get busy we have a bad habit of ordering out instead of cooking in the home. August is a great month for lots of quick and easy dinners.
This month I am challenging myself to cook and eat dinner at home for 30 days. As a reward on the 31st day we will treat ourselves and eat out.
Quick and easy dinners are a great way to ensure that we eat at home. This month I’m shopping solely for ease of cooking. I’ll be preparing meals ahead of time, using my crockpot more, and trying some new quick and easy recipes.
There is one thing I dislike about quick and easy dinners. They often times end up being a lot of the same foods or type of foods. It gets boring fast, and who wants boring dinners?
So I scoured through Pinterest to find 30 quick and easy dinners that tasted great and offered variance in types of meals. I also looked for meals that were big enough to leave leftovers.
Leftovers make for great lunches. They even work as good dinners if you just don’t feel like cooking.
I’ve put together a list of all 30 meals including one of our favorite quick and easy dinners. If August is crazy for you because of back to school, business, or just last minute summer activities; take a look at the list for some quick and easy dinners.
