Don’t have time to cook? Need a quick & easy dinner idea?
Grab a baking sheet pan and build a tray of your family’s favorite fruits, nuts, cheeses, deli meats, and veggie dippers as an easy weeknight meal! The best part about this idea is that it uses up any forgotten produce, odds and ends in the fridge/pantry, and doesn’t require a ton of effort.
I bet you could scan the fridge and pantry and come up with some easy ideas right away!
Make some simple meat and cheese skewers using toothpicks and serve them along side any additional cheese wedges and crackers you may already have on hand.
Use kid friendly dips such as hummus, peanut butter, guacamole, and ranch dressing as an anchor to your snack tray and build around that. My family’s favorite dip for veggies is this easy to make Classic Dill Dip. Get the recipe here.
We have had snack dinner a few times recently and it has been a hit with my family! It was a perfect summer idea to avoid using the oven/stove. Roasted vegges, hard boiled eggs, olives, and pickles would be nice additions also.
Sometimes we will take along a picnic with similar foods like this to the ball field while watching my son play sports on busy weeknights. This would be also be an easy idea to compile and take along as snack board for tailgating or to a football party!
