I'm staring a series this week that plagues me every single week... what to make for dinner. I know, dinner is my 'thing' - I shouldn't struggle with what to make. But, I do. I think most people do. For me, I get major burn out. I get burnt out on trying new things. I get burn out on making the old stuff. And at the end of each season (like right now...) I get burnt out on that season's seasonal food.
Right now I am burnt out on comforting stews and heavy dinners. In September I will be burnt out on heirloom tomatoes and fresh basil - which sounds impossible now. Fresh, summer produce sounds amazingly refreshing, but I know when September rolls around I'll be blogging about how much I'm craving a big pot of chili in front of the fireplace. It is inevitable.
Where was I...
That's right. The answer to the question - What's for dinner? At the beginning of every week I'm going to (planning to...) post a weekly dinner plan. So if you're ever struggling with what to make for dinner, you can click on this link : What's For Dinner (copy and paste the link someplace safe - I'll update that link every week with the new week's plan) and you'll have the answer. Or at least an idea. And, if you have some great dinner ideas - let me know! Maybe I'll share a Reader's Choice idea each week, to. What are you having for dinner this week?
This is what I'm planning :
Monday : Roasted Chicken Carbonara
Tuesday : Tomato Basil Soup & Grilled Cheese
Wednesday : Chicken with Olives and Angel Hair
Thursday : Thai Steak Noodle Salad & Shrimp Spring Rolls
Friday : Dinner Out... I'm thinking Mexican!
Saturday Morning : Banana Pecan Pancakes (Dinner Out)
Sunday : Pan Seared Lemon Garlic Chicken & Chocolate Cream Pie with Pecan Shortbread Crust
