With our house on the market and our heads in planning mode for our upcoming giving tour ’round the country, meal planning has been the last thing on our minds.
I took the girls to the grocery store yesterday and couldn’t think of a single meal to make (really). I spent $20 – milk, butter, bread, and fruit. We had homemade fruit smoothies and fresh tortillas last night; french toast the night before. Tonight? Um. Something on the grill?
Tim is awesome when it’s 5:30 and we’re meal-less. He will often grill up chicken, fish, or veggies at the last minute – and the results are rarely disappointing. On special occasions, we grill up a platter of babyback ribs (and the girls love it).
If you’re short on space (perhaps you live in a condo, apartment, or duplex) or you want a grill to take camping, I recommend the Weber Q 120 LP Gas Grill ($169; available at Lowe’s). It’s compact, heavy-duty, and a cinch to use. The fold out wings on either side are great for holding waiting plates and tongs.
What have been your favorite meals to make in the last few weeks? Your ideas are appreciated.
