Prep your meals

Prepping seems to be the only thing that gets dinner done faster. You can prep easily by having an idea of what you will be for dinner. While it only takes a minute to think of what you want for dinner, it does take some thought into getting the ingredients ready.

Keep your dinners simple

Another way you can make dinner easier on the whole family is by keeping everything simple. Don’t expect gourmet dinners on a parent’s time-table. Keep thing simple around your home! This will make dinner time easier on the whole family.

Give the kids their own little chores

Something that we do around here (and our kids love it) gives the kids their own little chores. Let them set the table or pass out cups. They can even give everyone a spoon or a napkin. Simple things that help them feel helpful, but it also takes something off of your plate.

One of my favorite meals to make for myself and my entire family is a delicious wrap.  To create the most perfect wrap I take clean romaine leaves and lay them out flat on a plate.  I pop my Minute® Ready to Serve Rice in my microwave and cook for the allotted time.  Once it’s finished I place it on the romaine lettuce and spread it out evenly, than I top off with a delicious helping of Chicken of the Sea Salmon and boy is it delicious.  A treat for the entire family and it’s so easy to make!
