Menu Plan Monday - What's your Favourite Easy Dish?
Menu Planning is becoming more and more difficult for me... I realize it isn't easy doing it - it is, after all, work. I'm tired of cooking up new menu plans, new meal ideas and looking for inspiration.
My time to cook is limited - I like to have dinner on the table by 5:30 or 6pm - that means I need something quick and simple. I hate to say our tastes are bland - they aren't per se - but we have a typical repertoire of meats that we cook with. Chicken, beef, pork and vegetarian. Fish isn't high on our lists of "likes" (even if TroubleMaker asks me weekly for a "real fish dinner") and other sea foods aren't enjoyed either.
I've been combing blogs and recipe sites and I've found a few things, but nothing that has really made me go "wow"! My husband didn't quite understand my issues tonight as he did a huge grocery shop for us on Thursday (based off a list I'd made) and said "there is lots of food in the house!" There is, that is true... It's just what to make with it is the problem!
So what are some of your weeknight favourites? Please share with me in the comments with links to your blog or recipe!
