Not feeling inspired by your usual dishes? Here's what's for dinner.

Mondays are perfect for roast chicken: The oven does all the work, while you decompress from the return to the workweek and enjoy the warm, roasted scent emanating from your kitchen. Plus, you can revamp the leftovers all week long for workday lunches and quick stir-fries. Future you will thank Monday you.

① Drink: White Port and Tonic
It has only two ingredients, so you can have this drink in your hand before you even get your shoes off. Go ahead–it's Monday.

② Main Course: Roast Chicken with Bread and Arugula
For Ina Garten's classic chicken in a hurry, skip the overnight refrigeration and launch right in. The best part? The toasted bread becomes as juicy as the chicken itself and makes for a built-in side dish.

③ Dessert: Chocolate Bark
Melt chocolate, add toppings and let the refrigerator do the rest. This chocolate fix practically makes itself.
