Quick Dinner Recipes
|Date Added: March 01, 2010 02:25:27 PM|
I have never loved to cook. My grandfather expected my grandmother to cook full course meals for him every day. This was something that my grandmother loved to do, and often she would try to teach me how to cook many of her favorite recipes. I can see that my grandmother really loved what she was doing, and I can also see that she hoped that love was passed down to me. Unfortunately, this just was not the case. This is why I am always looking for quick dinner recipes to serve in my house.
There are some quick dinner recipes that I have come up with on my own. Perhaps quick might not be the best word, as many of them are simple but not so quick. One of my husband’s favorites is my homemade lasagna. Though it takes almost two hours to prepare this, it is very easy to do. Most of that time is spent baking or boiling noodles. Other than that it is one of my favorite quick dinner recipes. I only call it quick because the preparation on my part is minimal.
Sadly, most of my quick dinner recipes are not healthy ones. This is something that I am looking to change. Not only am I trying to watch my own weight, I worry that my daughter may get bad eating habits instilled in her that she may never be able to shake. My mother was a single mother for a long time, and at one point she was going to college and working full time. This meant that she had many quick dinner recipes, but back then, people were not as concerned with nutrition as they are now. She did the best she could, and I will always appreciate that. However, it did teach me some bad lessons about eating.
Quick dinner recipes are not worth it if they do not nurture a family. It might be very easy to boil some hot dogs and make a box of macaroni and cheese, but your family is getting very little nutritional value from that type of meal. Take some time to look online for some quick dinner recipes that are not only quick, but there also nutritional. Luckily for you, these recipes are becoming easier and easier to find. Not only can you find meals that are quick and easy to prepare, but you can also find information about calorie count, what types of vitamins and minerals are included in that meal, and also some great ideas for side dishes and beverages.
