Ever in a hurry to come home and cook up a quick meal for dinner? Sometimes you feel so frazzled from your day that you just have no idea what you can instantly make. On top of that, you might not have been able to go to the grocery store in a quite awhile so you don’t have all the ingredients you might need for a full meal. If this sounds familiar, know that you are definitely not alone. Here are a few quick fix meals you can make in less than ten minutes.
Sandwiches. Depending on how extravagant you want to be with a sandwich, just simply throwing some sandwich meat, some lettuce, and a piece of cheese between a couple of pieces of bread is always a quick and easy option for a fast dinner. Throw in some veggies or chips on the side, and you have yourself a quick meal. Don’t have any meat? The classic peanut butter and jelly is also a great option too.
Breakfast for dinner. Whoever said that your favorite breakfast food can’t be eaten for dinner? A quick bowl of cereal with some scrambled eggs and fruit tastes just as good in the evening as it does in the morning. And it can be made just as quickly too. Instead of your morning cup of coffee or glass of orange juice, you can have some iced tea or other evening appropriate beverage to make the meal more suitable for dinner.
Spaghetti or any kind of pasta. Pasta is also a quick option for dinner. All you do is boil some water, throw the pasta in, let it cook, add your sauce, and voila! You have a filling and tasty meal in a matter of minutes. Depending on what you have available to you in your fridge, you can add as many veggies or meats as you want. The more time you have, the more you can add. But even if you don’t have a lot of time, pasta with some sauce is a great quick and yummy meal option.
So the next time you come home and worry about what you’re gonna make for dinner, don’t panic. Just choose one of these choices and you’ll have dinner on the table in no time. Good luck!
