Working full time doesn’t mean having to eat boring food during the week. I try to cook delicious food during the week, as quickly as possible. I try to keep all midweek dinners under 30 minutes for my housemate and I, including all prep time. There is so much I need to do when I get home that it needs to be easy, quick, filling and ideally suitable for lunch the next day.
With this in mind I wanted to share with you 5 tasty quick dinners that are perfect cold or reheated for lunch the next day!
