The Real Deal on Dinner Preparation

Are any of you familiar with 30 Minute Meals?  You’re supposed to be able to make a delicious meal from start to finish in 30 minutes. This show ticks me off.  Now that my husband is aware of this concept, he seems to think that I should be able to cook perfect dinners in 30 minutes. All the time.  Yeah, like I want to stress out over making dinner. Please. It’s painful enough already having to worry about food allergies and who will eat what and who is bothering who and…

So now I’m curious, how long does it take you to make dinner?  Am I crazy that it takes me almost an hour to make dinner, when I add in the prep time and interruptions from children? Or can one really make a tasty 30 minute meal without freaking multi-tasking or throwing a frozen dinner in the oven?

Consider yourself warned: I write books about rebels. I'm also a postergirlz for readergirlz, a literary advisory group for teens. Who knew going back to the teenage years would be so rewarding?
