Prepare in Advance
Dinner time is usually one of the busiest times of day if you have young or school aged children, but this doesn't mean you can't prepare a yummy meal that seems like it might be more work than you have time for. Take a tiny bit of your free time during the day to do some prep work so that dinner will come together quickly in the evening. For example, tonight we are having the Garlic Chicken Farfalle so this morning, I threw the frozen chicken breasts in the crock pot and then cooked and crumbled the bacon. Using free time in the morning or afternoon to chop veggies that will go into your dish will save you a ton of time and stress in the end. Check your recipes for later in the week and double up your chopping so that it will be done for later meals.
