Quick Weekday Dinner Ideas!

Updated: Jul 5, 2022

Even though we are home more than ever, the days don't seem to have anymore time in them... weird right?!?! For me, cooking on the weeknights is a time to slow down. Lately we have been putting the playlist on shuffle and cooking quick but yummy dinners every other night, it has been absolutely magical. We also like to slide in a quick card game after dinner before cleaning up and rushing to the TV. I think it is so special to find little routines in life (especially during these times) that allows you have something to look forward too. Below I am going to share some of the yummy but quick recipes that we have been eating on weeknights!
