That question is on my mind a lot.
Every single night of the week, in fact.
I try my best to plan meals out approximately one week in advance and usually I succeed. But it’s hard coming up with creative, fresh menu ideas that are nutritious, quick, AND delicious…seven days a week. Even our “family favorites” get a little boring after awhile…no matter how tasty they are.
So I thought we could help each other out.
That’s what this weekend is all about – sharing recipes, divulging favorite menu ideas, and discussing meal-prep and planning. Of course, there will be meal-themed product reviews and giveaways as well.
Let’s kick off the weekend with a question: Who does most of the cooking in your house?
My husband helps out around the kitchen (cleaning, prepping, etc.), but I’m really the cook of the house. His recipe repertoire is rather skimpy. He can make some awesome scrambled eggs and he’s King of the BBQ Grill, but he’s just not the chef type.
For example, tonight I made the Beef Fajitas. But he’s not just watching TV in the other room while I cook in an apron with my hair perfectly coifed. Au contraire: The TV is off. My hair is pulled back. And he is scrubbing the table and loading the dishwasher as we speak. That, my friend, is modern America for you.
