If you’re a busy person like me, you probably don’t have the time to make super elaborate meals every night. Here is a list of 20 quick go-to dinners you can make when you don’t have a lot of time to cook.
Most of the items on the list are pretty self explanatory, but for some of the dinner ideas, I have provided links to my favorite bloggers and their recipes to give you some inspiration.
Pineapple Kielbasa- a can of pineapple chunks sauteed with sliced Kielbasa until the pineapple liquid evaporates. Serve over rice drizzled with soy sauce.

Breakfast for dinner. Cook pancakes, eggs and bacon on the griddle so there is only one thing to clean
Portabello Fajitas are easy for weeknights, especially if your vegetables are prepped in advance
Stir fry vegetables over rice
