My Top 13 Dinnertime Quick Tips I spent the past few days in Park City, Utah at EVO, a social media conference for women, and it was an amazing thing. I will tell you more about it this week with photos, etc. I realized I’m not alone being a social media junkie, addicted to twitter. Twitter is a wonderful thing (for too many reasons to mention at the moment), but every day I meet new and interesting people and find great blogs and websites. I was fortunate enough to meet Christine from http://quickmealhelp.com on twitter, and she asked me to do a guest post on my tips on how I get dinner on the table when I’m an extremely busy entrepreneur and mom with 3 children. Here are some of my favorite tips I shared with her. Check out her site (above) for 20 minute recipes and wonderful information. Here’s the link to my guest post http://www.quickmealhelp.com/blog/10062113-quick-dinner-ideas-alison-lewis-ingredients-inc http://www.quickmealhelp.com/blog/10062113-quick-dinner-ideas-alison-lewis-ingredients-inc TOP DINNERTIME TIPS: 1. I like to purchase chicken cutlets or thinly slices boneless pork loin chops because they cook much quicker. 2. I get my kids involved in making dinner and helping out. (See my Fresh Basil and Red Pepper Tuna Salad) 3. I like to purchase already peeled and deveined shrimp or frozen shrimp that has been peeled and deveined. (See my Shrimp-Dill Salad) 4. I love to cook with shelled edamame beans. (See my Edamame Corn Salad) 5. I use rotisserie chicken a ton when recipes call for chopped, cooked chicken. (See my Tortellini Chicken Salad) 6. I love to grill a lot. It’s quick and easy. If I can’t get outside, I love my grill pan over the stove. 7. I used ready-made pizza crusts alot and purchase lots of fresh vegetables, good tomato sauce, pesto and fresh herbs for toppings. 8. Panini makers and slow cookers are a life saver. 9. I like to prep while my kids are at school so my nights aren’t so crazy (of course, in summer, that’s not so easy). 10. I use precut carrots and bagged, washed greens. 11. I make very organized grocery lists. 12. When I grill salmon, steak or chicken, I grill extra for a main-dish salad the next night. 13. When I purchase hamburger (beef or turkey meat), I buy extra to also make a meatloaf for another night.
