Dinner Makeover: Ideas for a Flexible Dinner Menu
Real Simple staff food editor Dawn Perry showed Amy how to shop for a week’s worth of meals at one time—without cramping her improvisational style. Then she gave the mother of two an arsenal of quick recipes that she could pull off on the days when she exercises. Since Noah and Evan are interested in cooking, Dawn gave them a tutorial in kitchen basics so they can help prep the meal on busy nights. Finally, she left the boys with some tasty after-school snack ideas to hold them until dinner.
