Maybe it’s just this “cooler” weather we have been having the past few days, or the feel good days of 2nd tri-mester, but I am so excited to cook! Here’s a few ideas I have been working on to make that 4pm dinner rush not so frustrating (especially when it is hot) and in helping plan menus
- need to brown or cook meat for tonight’s dinner? cook it after breakfast when the house is still cool & you have energy!
- clean the kitchen up before you start cooking dinner. helps having clear counters and not a HUGE mess after dinner.
- take some time before dinner to play & rest. going from busy busy busy to cooking dinner isn’t helpful. then i have a better attitude about serving a yummy dinner & not resorting to pleading & begging to go out or throwing frozen taquitos in the oven!
- is there… 1) something chicken? 2)beef? 3)pasta? 4)do we want pizza this week? 4) casserole mood? 5) or maybe stir fry?
