How varied is your daily menu? Between taking the kids to after school activities, meeting your work responsibilities, and everything else that makes up your days, you might often find yourself eating the same thing for dinner.

However, not only is eating the same thing boring but also it isn’t very good for your body. Check out these easy comfort food recipes that you can throw together in a jiffy!
