How many times have you made dinner over the last 25 years?
If you made dinner every night for the last 25 years that would be over 9,000 dinners!!
Now I know I have not made dinner every single night over the last 25 years, but I know I have made many, many meals...and to be honest...I am stuck in a rut.
What should we have for dinner?
As much as I love making homemade meals for my family, I am really tired of the same things I have been making for years.
So...I got really excited when I saw this cookbook at Costco recently...
Fifty-two weeks of menus! This is exactly what I was looking for to add a bit of variety to my weekly menu...and each menu has a recipe for a main dish, a side, AND a dessert, oh yum!
Our first adventure was Menu 48...because why should we start at the very beginning...
Chicken Parmesan Crescents, Honey Cashew Green Beans...
... and Chocolate Raspberry Brownie Parfaits
Not only were these recipes easy to prepare, but my family (and my neighbors that we fed that night) loved them! I loved that not only was a main dish recipe provided, but a side dish also! Each menu does come with a dessert recipe, but I am not sure if I will prepare dessert each week. But it is nice to have some options in case we have friends over for dinner.
So this week, we are going to give Menu 18 a try...Grilled-Chicken Alfredo Pizza and BLT Salad...my daughter is really looking forward to this one.
If you are stuck in a rut for what to make for dinner, you might want to find this recipe book to add to your collection, A Year with Six Sisters' Stuff.
