We are now in our second two-week dinner menu. I would say that my husband is VERY happy. Why? Because I am not only “cooking” more, but also adding sides to our meals. I grew up with sides on the table. We always had a salad on the table and fruit or vegetables or rolls. I, however, am a one dish woman!
With a growing family, however, I see the great need to help stretch our main dishes by adding easy sides to the mix. And, honestly, it is yummier. And I have cultivated great little chefs in the kitchen to help me. So, I am RESOLVED!
This week’s menu:
w/garlic bread and corn
w/ sweet potato fries and fruit salad
Baked Potato Bar
w/potatos, green salad, and dinner rolls
w/ rice and peaches and pears
w/ rice-a-roni, applesauce, and green beans
w/ chips and salsa and corn
………and so and so forth. See, nothing spectacular. Just yummy staples that everyone loves. But I’m sticking to it. And that is the very best part. Well, I’m off to boil pasta for our Chili Mac.

I decided to finally give the menu planning thing a try too and it has been amazing…I am wondering why it has taken me 10 years of marriage to finally do it! And my kids love looking on the calendar and knowing what is for dinner. And tonight Justin even made dinner…funny thing is he didn’t look at the calendar and he made what I had written down!
