School’s back in session, and I’m employing lots of strategies to get dinner on the table efficiently on weeknights.

  • Have a cooked grain (such as rice) in the refrigerator at all times. This is good for building an impromptu “bowl.”
  • Keep on hand some pulled pork or another cooked meat, to build a bowl or burrito or taco. You can make it in your slow cooker, or purchase it already prepared, as I did here. This version is cooked, smoked and seasoned but not sauced, so is very versatile. This can be a dinner-saver!
  • Have some all-purpose condiments, such as the pickled carrots and onions I am using here. This is the ubiquitous nibble that appears magically every time you sit down to eat at a Mexican restaurant, but you can make it yourself so easily.
  • Be willing to mix and match ingredients for an impromptu dinner. Use what you have!
