26 Meal Ideas…. For Busy Days

Sometimes we all need an easy meal, sometimes more times than expected… So I thought I would create a list of my “go to” simple meals for some inspiration. These meals require little time and effort. They are also reasonably healthy with a touch of comfort and ease to them. You can adapt these ideas by having them with or without meat and cheese too.
