Hi, guys! How are you doing on this fine Friday? I’m running late as usual. I seriously need to get better at time management! I always have so much I want to get done and have trouble prioritizing. It’s not like I’m sitting around watching TV instead of writing my posts or folding laundry. (Well, maybe I am for an hour or so at night, but we all need a break sometime!) It’s more like I don’t prioritize well, so I start tweaking my blog layout or working on bookkeeping stuff or researching new advertising options when I should be writing a post or unloading the dishwasher. All of those other things are good uses of time, but I should get the more pressing jobs out of the way first, wouldn’t you agree? There are just never enough hours in the day! (Thank goodness I have my assistant, Jen, to help me!)

I told Matt last weekend that I had a recipe post due soon, but I didn’t know what to make yet. He said I seem to have a lot of things “due soon” and was I getting them at the last minute or putting them off or what? After I resisted the urge to smack him, I decided not to talk to him anymore about deadline pressures since I probably do sound like a broken record. Sometimes I do get work with a short turnaround time, but more often I procrastinate until it’s down to the wire, and then I rush to get ‘er done. That’s just how I operate, but I can’t complain about it since it’s my own fault!

Anyway, I have been piddling around (Am I the only one who says “piddling?”) with other stuff, but here I am with some easy dinner recipes for you! Maybe you’re a busy procrastinator too, and quick and easy recipes are perfect for people like us, right? Click the recipe names for the full posts. Let’s go!
