Quick and Easy Dinner Recipes for Busy Teachers

Let's face it... teaching is EXHAUSTING.  Some nights when I finally get home it seems almost impossible to make dinner.  That's why I was so excited to stumble across 6 weeks of recipe ideas from Kevin and Amanda.  Planning this far in advance seems a little nuts, but it could save tons of time!  I picked out some of my favorite quick, easy and heathyish recipes from this website and others to share.

 These porkchops were SO yummy!  I served it with a salad and the microwave mashed potatoes from the site.  I will definitely be making this again.

I loved both of these.  I made a double batch of the chicken nuggets to freeze and microwave later on.  They are so yummy with honey mustard or ranch dressing.  Unfortunately, "Mr. P" was not crazy about the chicken nuggets ("too vegetabley") but he loved the green bean fries.  I made those with seasoned salt instead of regular salt.  Yum!

 I made this ham exactly as the recipe says, except that I threw a bunch of new potatoes and baby carrots in the bottom of the pot.  It was delicious!  With the leftovers, I made...

Serve this with some rolls and salad... you'll love it.

Yum, chix-veg nuggets sounds delish! Thanks Ms. P!

Another thing to try with the green beans (or we us asparagus too) is to toss with olive oil, balsamic, and garlic and roast for 7 min. So good!
