April Weeknight Meals
You are most likely finding yourself spending more time at home this month than you might have expected and that probably also includes more cooking and eating at home too. Some of us may have more time to cook, but a lot of us juggling work and kids at home may in fact have less. So, I hope our March edition encouraged you to fire up your grill a bit more -- grilling is often a great option for fast meals with little cleanup. Plus, it'll get you outside!
This month, I'm including one of the fastest seafood options that requires just a few minutes of cooking: scallops. If those don't strike your fancy, try a new take on a family favorite with a few pasta dishes that no one will even notice are also vegetarian. There's something to help everyone get weeknight meals on the table. And consider having kids help out too!
