I don’t know about all of you, but there are some nights during the week when my life is almost too chaotic to even think about preparing a home-cooked meal. It’s on busy weeknights like this when I love turning to one pot dinners that I can put together without too much extra fuss.
Even better, do a little planning ahead and have all of the ingredients that you’ll need for that night’s one pot dinner prepped and ready to go in the refrigerator. It takes a little work ahead of time but makes those busy evenings go so much more smoothly. You’ll be able to award yourself a gold star for not resorting to fast food, and your family will love being treated to a delicious and wholesome meal.
