Lazy weeknight dinners are the absolute best folks.
Now that my toddler is sleeping less, playing more and generally demanding more of my attention I find myself falling behind when it comes to putting dinners together that take more than 30 minutes.
Dinners don’t need to be fancy in our house. As long as they are balanced, tasty and generally healthy we’re a very happy bunch.
So, I’ve been turning to lazy weeknight dinners more and more. I’d really rather play with my kid than spend 2 hours at the stove cooking up a fancy meal. We’re still eating well and I get to take part in late afternoon tea parties, tricycle rides and couch jumping sessions that leave me a sweaty mess. #toddlerlife am I right?
Before I get to the recipes, I just wanted to let ya’ll know how awesome this dutch oven is. Mer surprised me with one and I’ve really enjoyed using it in our kitchen. It’s really great for cooking slow cooked meals like soups, casseroles and stews. The porcelain enamel finish is awesome because nothing sticks! So, you basically throw everything into the pot, turn on the heat and let the pot do its work. Seriously, it’s a lazy weeknight dinner dream!
Okay let’s talk food now shall we? A bunch of super delicious lazy weeknight dinners are coming right up!
