9 Last-Minute Dinner Ideas
For nights when even ordering takeout isn't fast enough, here are simple meals you can throw together with whatever ingredients you have around.
If you have ground beef...
Fix sloppy joes. Cook a pound of ground beef (or turkey), a chopped onion and 3 chopped carrots until the meat is cooked through (about 10 minutes). Drain the fat off with a ladle and add a teaspoon of chili powder and a 14.5-ounce can of chopped tomatoes. Simmer 10 minutes; serve open-faced on toasted buns with grated extra-sharp Cheddar and plenty of napkins.
