So, about 4:45 every night, I start to panic.
Crap. I have no idea what to make for dinner!
Then I call Tim & casually ask if anything in particular sounds good for dinner (as though I had another plan, but wanted to make him the meal he's been dreaming of)- hoping for an idea...
Enter my new *brilliant* plan. Theme nights. No, we won't be dressing up in Hawaiian shirts or sombreros. I have picked a different "theme" (for lack of a better term) for each day. I would love to hear YOUR favorite dinner ideas for our categories. Here are our themes & some of the ideas.
Sunday- crock pot
Monday- breakfast for dinner- German pancakes, french toast, scrambled eggs, cold cereal
Tuesday- chicken (or turkey, for my FIL)- chicken noodle soup, Julie Leavitt chicken
Wednesday- Noodle night- baked ziti, spaghetti & meatballs, lasagna
Thursday- Build your own ____ - potato bar, tacos, sandwiches, individual pizzas
Friday- Beef- steak, sloppy joes
Saturday- miscellaneous- Probably left-overs...
So, what would you add? Leave a comment & links to your favorite recipes. Nothing too fancy- let's be realistic. I have 4 kids, one of which does not like to be put down for too long. Who am I kidding? I didn't cook fancy when I had 0 kids. No fuss, somewhat healthy (I can renovate recipes with weightwatchers.com) and things kids like.
That's all I ask.
Thank you and good day.
