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
