What to Cook for Dinner?
For this week’s meal plan I chose to make our dinner sides easier to be prepared. How do I do that you ask?
I batch cook our sides. I make extra of each side dish for the dinners for the whole week at one time. It makes it easier to get dinner done and less clean up and prep too.
This week we’ll be having homemade biscuits twice. I’ll make a double batch the first night and hide the extra away for later in the week.
We’ll have mashed potatoes as a side a few nights. The first night I’ll make a large batch. When I need the potatoes fo dinner later in the week, I pull out enough for that night’s dinner and heat the potatoes.
Salad is another side I make ahead. This week we will be having salad 3 nights later in the week. I’ll prepare the lettuce the first night along with toppings we want. Since the lettuce and the topping are ready and waiting I only have to assemble the salad each night, super easy!
