Easy Weeknight Dinner

I am always trying to figure out good quick things to make for dinner on weeknights. After work I often don’t have time to do something elaborate but I don’t want to eat unhealthy things either. There are some general foods that I always keep on hand which I am slowly profiling in my Kitchen Essentials Series which are a great base for a lot of my weeknight eating. I am also always trying to think of what foods I can make that I can turn the leftovers into something nice for lunch the next day.

So take a quick peek into some of the weeknight meals I have been making these past few months and maybe they can help you come up with some ideas for your own weeknight dinners.
