"What's for dinner tonight?" The question comes almost daily from darling husbands and hungry kids and more times than not the answer is "I don't know". Yes, we plan in advance, but dinner can be such a drag--and clean up after even more of a drag. This is why making dinners not using the stove or oven can be a refreshing change of pace, and makes cleaning up a breeze. With kitchen gadgets, like a slow-cooker, panini maker, and electric grill, you'll never not know what to make for dinner again.
A slow cooker. A slow cooker might be my favorite kitchen gadget. It's so easy to use, and everything always tastes so delicious when it comes out. Some of my favorites are chili and stew. For both you just need to chop up veggies, and add a sauce. Do it first thing in the morning, and come dinner just set the table and you're ready.
A panini maker. All sandwiches taste better when pressed into a panini maker. Try grilled ham and cheese; mozzarella and roasted peppers, or grilled chicken. Layer on some vegetables for a healthy addition.
An electric indoor grill. Everything tastes better grilled, and is better for you. Chicken, turkey sausage, or a steak. Just put it on, while it's cooking make an easy side dish and you're done. The grease drips away into a tray, and you can put the grill top right in the dishwasher for easy clean up.
Dinners that are easy to make, easy to clean up and are delicious. Who's a super-mom now?
What's your go-to dinner when you don't know what to make?
