Here’s what I’m thinking about right now: What are the dinners that are in my monthly rotation and that my family looks forward to (the small humans too)? These are the “go to” dishes that I can make with my eyes closed, not too much thinking and turn out perfectly every time. In other words, not even interruptions of “Mom, can I have another snack, please?” will slow me down!
Here they are:
Pasta with Tomato-Basil or Marinara Sauce (the favorite by far)
Meatloaf (turkey or the triple threat: beef, pork and veal)
Breaded Chicken Tenders and sauces for dipping
An Egg Dish (scrambled, fritatta, or fried and placed atop a potato hash)
Pork Tenderloin or Pot Roast
Worthy runner up: fresh veggie soup with macaroni or tiny meatballs
