The Busy People's Super Simple 30 Minute Menus

The Busy People's Super Simple 30 Minute Menus
by Dawn Hall [641.55 Hal]

A terrific book for busy homemakers or just when you can't think after work. Each recipe is actually a full menu that you can prepare in 30 min (such as "Quicker Than Granny's Home-Style Chicken, Country Parmesan Potatoes, Garlic Green Beans") and includes nutrition info per serving. Gives you a countdown on what cooking task to do and when to do it ("30 min before dinner start the potatoes by bringing 2 quarts water in a medium saucepan to boil over high heat. 27 min before dinner prepare the a shallow dish combine 1/2 c bread crumbs...") walking you through every step, ending with "1 min before dinner" when you're putting the serving dish on the table. Includes the kitchen utensils needed and the grocery list. Meals divided into categories such as Chilled Meals, Casseroles, Grilling, Vegetarian, Home on the Range. Preparing a nutritious, delicious meal couldn't be easier.
