what we ate for dinner

 

For our family (maybe most families?), dinner is the only meal where we are all together. My toddler is usually hungry around 6pm, which means we eat dinner as a family around the same time. That leaves me about half an hour between getting home from work and dinner time. I try to make dinner stress free by prepping ahead on the weekends. Cooking dinner is also less stressful when you plan ahead what to make and shop for the ingredients ahead of time.

On Friday evenings, I try to decide on the 2-3 dishes that I want to make for the following week, since we do our grocery shopping on the weekends. On Sundays, I do my meal prep.

So here’s what we’ve been eating lately.
