Tips for Getting Dinner Ready in a Flash

With Our busy schedules getting dinner ready in flash can be very challenging for many of us. (Myself included) I'm participating in a Samsung Blogging Sweepstakes and hoping to win a New Samsung French Door Refrigerator. Samsung Home Appliances and TwitterMoms have teamed up to create an easy way to blog and enter for a chance to win big! It's easy and you can enter too. Just stop by TwitterMoms and found out all the detail on how to enter. While you are there you can find many great tips on how to get dinner ready in a flash.

My Tips include:
1)Planning -This is very important!!! You can plan out your meals ahead of time and this will make preperation so much easier. If you know what you want to have this week you can purchase what you need /or what's on sale from your local grocery store and this will make it so much easier if you have all the items available. It's so hard to make dinner when you're missing the ingredients.
2)Crock-Pot Meals-I love my crock pot. This is a time saver!!! You can put a frozen roast in with potatoes and have it ready without much fuss.
3)Frozen Meals-You can make your own meals ahead of time and freeze or buy frozen dinners. There are many to choose from and much healthier options.
4)Quick Meals- There are many "Quick Meal" options. I buy frozen meatballs to have on hand for those times I need a dinner in a flash. It only takes about 10-15 minutes to make spaghetti and meatballs.(Granted homemade tastes better-but we are talking about time here)Cook pasta, heat jar of sauce and unthaw frozen meatballs in the microwave. That's pretty quick. There are many others like Breakfast For Dinner (Eggs,pancakes, french toast) Or Grilled cheese and tomatoe soup,etc.
5)Take-Out/Oder In-I love to order pizza or stop by and pick up subs.

**My Favorite Tip is to Dine Out!!! Either at your parents or your favorite restaurant.**
If all else fails: Hit the Drive Thru.

I hope that you found my tips helpful in making dinner in a flash with your busy schedule!! Feel free to share your tips.
