What to Cook for Dinner?
Happy Memorial Day! Take the time to remember those who have given so much to ensure our freedom today.
And enjoy time with your family and get them to help you make your meal plan if it’s not done yet.
It’s hard to come up with dinner ideas, week after week and not get stuck eating the same old thing.
You can combat the dinner rut by making a plan and adding new recipes in as you find them.
I make it a point to make a new recipe once a month. If we love it, it goes into the rotation. If not we don’t have it again.
I also have a list of meals that we eat during the different seasons of the year. I don’t want to plan to roast a chicken in the middle of a 90-degree day. I also don’t want to plan salads in the middle of winter.
Having meal idea for each season can help keep you from getting stuck in the dinner rut.
