Convenient, Clean, and Delicious Meals to Make

I'm all about convenience at dinnertime. Yes, I want my family's meals to be hearty, healthy, and delicious, but most of all, I need them to be easy and quick. That's why I love the crockpot, the slow-cooker, and the InstaPot--dump all the ingredients in; set it and forget it. 

But there's another even simpler method for cooking a full meal that oft goes forgotten, and it can result in a yummy fulfilling meal that's, best of all, totally mess-free: cooking in foil packets! 

Everything gets prepped, seasoned, and cooked in a little aluminum foil nest, resulting in fewer dirtied dishes, boards, pots, and pans. (Because if there's anything I like more than an easy meal, it's a sink-free of stuff!)

Whether you're making your foil-packet meals in the oven, stovetop, or on the grill, you can streamline and simplify your preparations and cut your cooking time in half. If that's not reason to give it a go, I don't know what is! I've rounded up a few favorite foil-pack dinner recipes to try this busy month and beyond. Enjoy! (And, BTW, it's totally acceptable to tell the hubby and kids that you'll take the burden and give them the night off from doing dish work in exchange for foot massages and fanning.)
