Who Loves moving??
Weeknights can get busy! With after school and work activities, homework, getting ready for the next day and normal household chores – the day is over before you know it! In my house you can top that off with moving to a new city….having everything packed in boxes and yeah…you get it! No time!
So, tonight I found myself standing in front of a nearly empty fridge, thinking “I need dinner, like, now… what to make?” Then I went to our nearly empty pantry….I literally cursed at myself for not having meal planned this week. Seriously, I didn’t even think about meal planning. I am totally focused on our move….needless to say this week is going to be tough with everything packed and no plan in place. BUT! I managed to whipped something up that my family thought was delicious.
15-Minute Skillet Recipe = Dinner!
With the help of one rope of smoked sausage, onion, garlic, some veggies, leftover rice and cheese. DONE. BAM -15-Minute Skillet – ROCKSTAR STATUS!
The best part of this entire recipe is that this kind of dinner is so versatile, and easily adaptable to what you already have on hand. Got asparagus, and some peas? Use those. Got some brown rice, or quinoa leftover? Use that. Don’t like smoked sausage? Some leftover steak or chicken, or even some shrimp from the freezer will work deliciously. You make it with what you have and what you like and it will still be ready as a 15-Minute Skillet Dinner!
