(Family Features) - If your family is always on the go, it can be challenging to find time to have dinner together. But with some quick tips on how to make easy dishes on the grill, it's possible to have a delicious meal on the table in about 30 minutes.
Plan Ahead. Plan a menu and make sure you have everything you need. Know what you can make ahead of time and take care of it the night before. Marinades, sauces and dips and some side dishes can all be prepped and stored in the refrigerator overnight. And when it's time to start grilling, make sure you have everything you need close by so you don't have to keep running back into the house.
Get Ready with Ready-to-Go Ingredients. Take advantage of pre-made and ready-to-go ingredients to save a lot of time. Bagged salads and pre-cut veggies cut down on the work you have to do. To save even more time, stock up on frozen items such as Schwan's Home Delivery Italian style meatballs and corn on the cob. Use the meatballs in this recipe for Grilled BBQ Meatball Kebabs - they're fun for the kids and are a great way to help give mom a night off from kitchen duty.
A home delivery food service that offers solutions for busy families, Schwan's has quality frozen products that range from meats, vegetables, ice cream and dessert and more.
Use the Microwave. It's a great way to cut down on thawing time and you can partially cook some meats and veggies so they don't take so long on the grill.
