I’m making an effort to cook more dinners during the week. Fewer frozen dinners and sandwich nights and more healthy, balanced meals. But between after-school clubs, guitar lessons and girl scouts, we’re home late 3 or 4 afternoons each week. So even though I’m cooking more meals, I still make sure to use shortcuts when I can.
One of my family’s favorite dinners is a Garden Veggie Frittata. It’s an egg and hash-brown dish that’s popular for breakfast or brunch, but we love to eat it for dinner. It’s easy for me to whip up and I can bake it while the kids work on homework and play for a little while.
