I was never much of a cook until I had a child and she began eating “table food”. Since this milestone, I have managed to cook dinner every night of the work week. Quite the feat for me, especially considering I work and had never cooked a dish more complicated than perogies prior to having a child. Since time these days is sparse and extremely valuable, I’ve had to find ways to create easy but healthy dinners (which I thought I’d share with you!).
I always make extra for lunch the next day which has also helped us to save money during these tough times.
