The days are dwindling. In less than a week, I'll be back to work. Just about everything here at home is in order. Just about. Now is the time where I have to start planning ahead for dinners during the work week. With our schedules, by the time we have the kids rounded up from school and get home, it will be smack in the middle of their normal dinner time. There won't be a lot of time for cooking a full meal, which means things will have to be cooked ahead of time (most likely the weekend before) and ready to heat and eat during the week. I'll be honest...I need help.
More often than not, I'm not a big fan of food reheated in the microwave because it rarely tastes the same as it would fresh off the stove. I just don't see how we can get around it with the limited time we'll have every night. I'm hoping some of you brilliant Mommies can share quick fix dinner ideas with me...things that are tasty, easy to prep ahead of time and reheat later, and that are healthy...or at least reasonably healthy! We are pretty big poultry eaters. We love beef and pork but none of us are big seafood fans. Post your favorite recipes or drop some links to recipes that I can try out. I'm hoping for a nice arsenal of meals that I can rotate from week to week so that we don't get too bored eating the same meals. I'll keep you posted on how my dinner planning works out!
