Growing up my mother used to say that if dinner didn’t come together in less than 30 minutes it wasn’t happening. Lately I’ve been feeling like I have even less time, so I’m curious: how much time do you actually have to pull together a meal for your family?

Are you back to back with ballet and soccer practice? Is your commute home long enough that if dinner isn’t ready within 5 minutes you just order a pizza?
