Meatball Sub Pizza

I keep a gallon bag of meatballs in the freezer for a quick dinner. It’s one of my “emergency” meals. Don’t feel like cooking?

Grilled Steak Tacos

Tacos are the new sandwich. Have a random assortment of leftovers to depressing to put on a plate? Wrap them up in a tortilla and call it lunch. That’s what I do nearly every weekday. We have taco night once a week. Sometimes twice. It’s our go-to quick dinner when I don’t feel like cooking. [...]
