Episode 96: Easy 5-Minute Meals During the Holidays

Here we are at yet another holiday—and yet another week we’re asking, “What the heck do we make for dinner apart from the Big Day?” Friend, this is what you need this week: no-cook dinners that are easy to assemble. So easy, in fact, that it’ll only take you five minutes from fridge the finished. Emily’s got some super-easy ideas for you, so hit up your grocery delivery app and bask in all the time you’ve given back to yourself this busy week. Happy Holidays—and happy eating!

Five-Minute Meals from Fridge to Finished (these are perfect for holiday crowds!)

  1. Be like the Leys and have a Snack Dinner
  2. Be like Jen Hatmaker and make a Sandwich Bar
  3. Pretend you’re Chipotle and make a Taco & Nacho Bar
  4. Pretend you’re a diner and make Breakfast for Dinner
  5. Pretend you’re a Campbell’s Soup commercial and make Soup + Grilled Cheese

A Blessing for Your Week

As you celebrate the holidays, I hope everything comes together with ease.

I hope you remember to honor what matters and let go of the small things that don’t.

And I hope your memories of this time are wrapped in love and laughter, and full permission to enjoy the magic of the season.

Simplicity Tip of the Week

Listen, this is my PSA to you: if your freezer isn’t stocked with frozen pizzas, then friend, now is the time to get it stocked with frozen pizzas—especially if you have family coming.

You know what? Almost everybody likes pizza. And you know what else? The folks at Big Pizza know this, and they make pizzas for just about every dietary need under the sun. Gluten free. Dairy free. Vegan. Vegetarian. There’s a pizza at the supermarket for just about everyone who’s coming over, I guarantee it. 

So poll your people to find out what they need, and stock up. You’ll be soooo happy when it’s December 26 and you don’t feel like going anywhere—or if the snow decides to fall and keeps you snowed in. You never know, a Florida girl can dream.
