We celebrate Eat Dinner Together Week this week and for many families this can be a challenge. Busy schedules that include work, school, sports practices, and other extracurricular activities, make it difficult to sit down together and enjoy a nightly meal. I understand that gone are the days of Leave It to Beaver where June Cleaver had all day long to prepare dinner for her family. The key to providing a nutritious meal is to be able to prepare something quickly or without much preparation. Otherwise, you’ll be reaching for the takeout menu.
Here’s a great recipe for Oven Baked Fajitas using chicken and whole wheat tortillas. I love that they also make the marinade in the morning, let the chicken, onions, and peppers marinate all day and then everything is ready to go when you get home from work. Oh, and kids love the “hands on” of putting together their own fajita too!
I hope you’ll try some of these recipes and enjoy mealtime with your family. While it takes a little effort, the payoff is definitely worth it.
