With summer winding down and always, I find myself short on time. The very last thing I want to do after making an entire meal have to spend hours clearing the table, tiding up the dining room and then washing dishes. That’s why during this transition into back to school I make a lot of one pot meals.
One pot meals typically take a lot less time and effort to cook, and then clean up takes hardly no time at all. Here are some from my favorite bloggers that I plan to try soon.
