40 Easy Weekday Dinner Recipes

We all know how it goes…It’s Wednesday. You have probably been living off of the remains of the weekend for the last two days, and take away is not an option tonight. To top it off, work is hectic, school functions arise by the hour and hubby has been asking “What’s for dinner, hun?” The rush of real life gets to the best of us.

Let’s get through dinner together

I have rounded up a few (actually more than a few) of my best-loved weekday dinner recipes. These dishes have made their way to our dinner table on many occasions.  With a few of my staple chicken recipes, ideas with pork, beef and a few fresh vegetarian dishes – there are loads to choose from in this list that will get you munching away with your feet up in no time. Yes, I am also that person that likes to eat good, clean and healthy food.  Choose grass-fed or pasture reared meats, chicken free from hormones and antibiotics, and of course I try to buy organic or pesticide-free veggies as much as I can. Feed your family the best, guys!
