If you follow me on Instagram and watch my Instastory, you know my life has been chaotic. I’ve been dealing with a major business tragedy and have had to take things one day at a time. (Full post on that coming soon!) My hours have been long, my anxiety level has been high and the last thing I want to do when I get home is cook dinner.
I showed you guys a really easy one pan chicken and veggie dinner a few months ago and now I’m onto one pan garlic butter shrimp with roasted asparagus. I can pop it right in the oven and then eat it when it comes out. It’s something my whole family loves and is perfect as of late, because I have even less time than usual. Hard to believe, I know! What dinner recipes do you lean on when you’re in a pinch? Tell me in the comments below.
