I envy those of you who are diligent about meal planning for your families each Sunday and manage avoid the whole “fly by the seat of your pants” phenomenon during the week. I need to take a few pages from your book. Teach me your secrets. Please!
While I may not be good at the planning part, I have a knack for dreaming up easy recipes that don’t require a lot of ingredients and are easy to throw together on a busy weeknight.
You help me, I help you. It’s a symbiotic relationship, yes?
A few of our favorite quick and easy meals are Chicken Tenders with Cherry Ginger Glaze (sounds fancy, right? So easy!), Easy Rice Bowl with Black Beans, Avocado & Cilantro Dressing and Lemon & Dill Shrimp Quesadillas.
This pork chop recipe will fly straight to the top of your weekly menu once your family showers you with praise (and you realize how easy it is). The trick is to use thin-cut, bone-in pork chops. They cook quickly and hold their moisture well, provided they aren’t overcooked.
If there are some kalamata olive dissenters in the family, just serve the olives on the side. Those that like them can sprinkle them on at their discretion.
