30 Minute Week Night Meals | Food Bloggers of Canada

When fall hits that means it's back to busy weeknight schedules.  But you still want to get a healthy meal on the table that even your fussiest eaters will want to eat.

And oh yeah... it has to be fast.  Because who has time to slave over a stove on a Tuesday night when there's homework to be done, soccer practice and music lessons to go to and bedtime stories to read (and maybe some wine and Netflix for you later!)?

Here are 30 thirty minute meals for you to try - we hope you'll find a few to add to your weeknight rotation!
