Some nights you just don’t feel like cooking what you have planned on your menu. Those are nights where I have a hard time resisting the siren’s call to go out to eat. We really shouldn’t go out to eat, and let’s face it, going out to eat with kids becomes harder than just staying home. To keep me from falling to temptation, I like to keep on hand ingredients for quick and easy meals!
For this month’s meal round up post with Come Home for Comfort and Polka-dotty Place, we decided to share our go-to favorite quick meals for busy nights. Be sure to check out their posts too for some great ideas! I’d also love to hear your go-to quick meals, so I can be inspired!
Here are some of our family’s favorites, all vegetarian, with a few recipe links included!
Hot Dogs or Veggie Burgers
Spaghetti in a variety of forms!
Frozen Pizzas, jazzed up with additional toppings
Burrito Bowls using veggies on hand and canned beans
