Wait. Did she say “fast foods”? Yup, I did. Let’s face it, sometimes we’re just too tired to cook, or we get home too late, or we forget to take something out of the freezer and there’s no plan for dinner. So we need some fast food.
Don’t worry! I’m not talking about any golden arches here. I’m talking about dinner food that is quick, easy, no recipe required, and minimal ingredients. The kind of meal ideas you keep in your back pocket and can whip up in less time than it takes to drive through any fast food establishment.
I think everyone should have a few of these tried and true “Fast Food” non-recipes on hand, because there’s nothing wrong with food that’s fast, as long as it comes out of your own kitchen. Keep in mind any meal can be Fast Food if you plan and prep ahead – cook your chicken, cut your vegetables, assemble your ingredients and put them in Ziploc bags. You get the idea.
