Kitchen Tips

Let’s be real. There are days that get away from us when there just was no time to “make” dinner. Or there are the days that you have every intention of cooking up a storm, but due to work, kids, you name it….you just couldn’t do it. You can still “fix” dinner and not have to resort to drive thru, take-out or pizza. The key to pulling this off is making sure you have a well stocked freezer, fresh vegetables always on hand, and a well stocked pantry.

Here are just a few simple menu ideas. Make sure you visit our links to come up with your own quick ideas.

  • Spaghetti and meatballs, garlic bread, salad
  • Stuffed chicken (found in the freezer section at Publix), steamed vegetable, rice
  • Grilled meat of choice (if already defrosted), grilled vegetables, mashed potatoes
  • Burgers, french fries, salad
