After a full day of work, coming home and dealing with kids and homework, laundry and other household chores, worrying about dinner seems to be too much. And if you are making dinner tonight, chances are you'll be doing the dirty work, too - cleaning up all the dishes. So you'll be happy to know that it is possible to make a complete dinner using only one dish, save the dinner plates. One-pot dinners are the answer to a busy cook's prayers and appeal to most everybody.
But there's another sensible reason for making one-pot meals: Serving them from the same dish you've made it in saves you from having to wash one more dish.
