How to Get Dinner on the Table in 10 Minutes

When you're a single person, it's easy to rationalize a bowl of cereal or quick take-out for dinner. For a family of three, or four, or more, it makes a lot more sense to make your own meals—they're healthier, cheaper, and way more satisfying than something that shows up at your door in a plastic container.

While families with two working parents (or one parent who works out of the home and one who stays home and busts their butt taking care of the kids) can probably make a ton of arguments for why home-cooked weeknight meals are next to impossible, we beg to differ. You can get dinner on the table at reasonable hour after work if you get organized, shop smart, and have a serious plan for that precious action time between walking in the door and dishing up plates for everyone. We've zeroed in on 10 tips to help you get dinner on the table fast. Click through the slideshow above to learn how.
