15 minute meals for busy families

I so needed these ideas for 15 minute meals! We are so busy during the week, and there are so many times we end up getting take out. This is totally going to help with that!

Feeding my family is a never ending challenge.  I like to cook, I really do, just not enough to spend a ton of energy on it by the time dinnertime rolls around.

On top of that, our schedules are crazy, and if I happen to drop the ball one day and not plan ahead, I will usually just order takeout.

One of the reasons I love my crock pot so much is that I can fix dinner in the morning, and it’s ready for us later when my motivation for the day is gone, or when we have something we are rushing to.

That said, there are days I just don’t think about what to put in the crock pot in the morning, and lately, those days have ended up being the biggest waste of money for us.  (Do you have any idea what it costs for a family of 6 to go out to eat??!!  It’s disgusting…)

So, I went did a little digging this weekend, and found 25 recipes that I can make in 15 minutes!  SCORE!!

Having meals in mind that can be whipped up in 15 minutes makes a huge difference for us.  I always think I don’t mind spending money on take-out every now and then.  Then I pay the bill, the food is gone in 30 minutes tops, and I totally regret wasting that money.  Plus, more often than not, the food we resort to in those situations isn’t anything to write home about.  I’m looking forward to trying these out.
