It's that time again; you're thinking about dinner and what to cook. Here's our weekly list of suggestions: dinner recipes that take less than an hour of mostly hands-off time or cook quicker then that but may require constant stirring. Yes, there will be pasta, and, yes, it will be delicious. On the weekends, there's more time to try something new or cook something slow. Visit us every week for dinnertime inspiration.

MONDAY: WARM SPINACH SALAD WITH FRIED EGG AND POTATOES

Warm Spinach Salad with Fried Egg and Potatoes Recipe

It's been a while but we're back with 'put an egg on it,' definitely one of our favorite dinner themes. This spinach salad is seriously next-level; sauteed potatoes and fried egg make it hearty, plus they are cooked in the same skillet-less cleanup is always a winner. And dinner is ready in 20 minutes. What's not to like?!

Sometimes on a Friday you just need the fastest possible dinner-and here it is. Start the rice to go with this 15-minute chicken-thigh recipe before you make the chicken, or better still, have someone else put the rice on before you get home! The peanutty sauce is a little spicy and altogether irresistible.

We're going for gold tonight with a sun-colored relish made with yellow bell peppers, almonds, smoked paprika, and garlic. It's the perfect condiment for scallops that are quickly grilled, outside or in a grill pan, and served atop Israeli couscous. This restaurant-worthy meal comes together in just 40 minutes and is absolutely delicious.

Ready for full-on fall flavors for dinner? We've got pork, cabbage, and apples (with a touch of bacon!). And it's slow-cook Sunday; shoulder chops become meltingly tender and wonderfully flavorful as they cook long and slow with cabbage, bacon, and onions. Serve with applesauce and sour cream for sweet and creamy contrast, and maybe some mashed potatoes or polenta?
