5 Kitchen Sink Recipes You Can Make When You’re Too Tired To Think

Anyone else feel more exhausted than usual while being stuck at home due to stay-at-home orders? Whether it’s because you’ve had to take on homeschooling duties for your kids, you’re tired from the change to your working routine or you’re overwhelmed by the amount of household chores piling up (or maybe all of the above?), this weird time right now has many of us feeling emotionally, physically and mentally drained. And while the idea of cooking three meals a day might seem like a fun idea for some people, for others, it’s a daunting task. Not to mention, you’re probably not visiting the grocery stores as often as usual and some items are not easy to find or are unavailable through some of the grocery delivery services.

Luckily, there are some great kitchen sink recipes that are not only very tasty, but are easy to make and utilize a lot of items you probably already have in your refrigerator.
