I fully intended on sharing a delicious, bacon-filled recipe with you today, but then I remembered that I didn’t have any bacon.

Fail. And yes, I was way too lazy to go buy any.



So I decided to make something else, but then I was deterred because Mr. How Sweet was running sprints on the treadmill downstairs and was screaming obscenities at himself. It just scarred me for life. And it was loud and annoying. So I curled up on the couch and continued laying around.



In that case, I’m leaving you with a recycled, cop-out post of some of my favorite meals that can be made in 30 minutes or less. And I’m not talking about made in the Rachael-Ray-I-already-have-everything-strategically-sitting-out-on-my-counter-30-minute way. As long as you have looked at the recipe beforehand and have the ingredients at home, 30 minutes should do the trick!



Healthy Loaded Nachos

You can add whatever you want on these. Especially bacon. I highly recommend it.



Mango Colada Parfait

Definitely won’t take you 30 minutes for this one. It’s a favorite meal!



Pizza Pasta

Yes, your pizza may have veggies on it. Please feel free to add them on. But don’t expect me to.



Crab Cakes

I’ve been making these crab cakes for years – the secret ingredient is sauteed peppers and onions. They always get rave reviews!



Multigrain Waffles

Breakfast for dinner is the best. And sometimes totally necessary.



Southwest Chicken Salad

I had to include a salad here because if I didn’t, well… you’d probably judge me. But it is a good one.



Lightened-Up Four Cheese Mac and Cheese

I make these in ramekins for easy portion control. Not that it really matters anyway… we just end up eating 3 or 4 each.



BBQ Chicken Quesadillas

Anytime I make these for myself, Mr. How Sweet ends up eating them all. Not fair.



What is your favorite quick and easy meal? I’ve had a mental block lately.
