Weeknights tend to feel rushed. Trying to get us all home from work and school, homework done, dinner made, bed on time. Right now we’re in the midst of “extras” too – Cub Scout meetings, swim lessons, etc. My one goal is making sure that somehow we have dinner together nightly at home. This means having a plan and coming up with simple solutions for getting dinner made quickly. Thankfully, that doesn’t mean having to sacrifice fresh options.

Easy Tomato and Cucumber Salad Recipe

Freschetta Pizzas have become a favorite for our family. I wasn’t a fan of frozen pizzas until I discovered these. Now they are in our regular dinner menu rotation. Freschetta is a scratch-made pizza with freshly shredded mozzarella cheese, vine-ripened tomatoes, and premium meats and vegetables, all on top of flavorful sauces and a preservative-free crust. Their Naturally Rising Crust Pizza contains no chemicals leaveners – the dough rises using real yeast. You can feel and taste the difference. Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
