Maybe it’s time to rush through dinner. Something quick and easy that doesn’t set off 99 guilt alarms. Something that doesn’t involve a drive through on the way home. Something that makes you check off that healthy meal check box. This is what you are looking for. A fast weeknight meal that comes with no guilt, tastes damn good, and leaves you feeling like you done something good for yourself (and let’s be honest, you have). Grab some salmon on the way home. Get some Brussels sprouts while you’re at it. There’s something totally rewarding about coming home, zoning out, and preparing dinner for the family, even on the most crazy weeknights.
Feed them. Feed them good.
