Raise your hand if you are feeling the time crunch of the holidays. I can assure you my hand is raised high. Both hands are raised as a matter of fact. It seems like no matter how prepared I felt 2 weeks ago, there are always a ton of things that creep up at the last minute. After spending the day at work or school, followed by shopping, errands and everything else you do day to day, it can be hard to come home to the daunting task of making dinner. I know I haven’t been overly excited lately. But to avoid spending unnecessary money on take-out (and calories for that matter), it’s probably a good idea to try to pull something for dinner, right?
