When I had the time (pre-Georgia) I really liked to cook, and I would even go as far to say that I loved cooking with Ryan. We’d run to the store, grab the few things we needed for that night’s meal, a bottle of wine and then go home, cook and finally sit down to eat at about 9pm.
Then, something weird happened when I got pregnant: cooking or eating anything that needed to be cooked wasn’t appealing. And once Georgia was born, cooking totally went out the window.
But lately, with Georgia eating dinner around 6pm with us, I’ve started planning meals that we can eat together as a family. I do some searching online – or find recipes on the apps I put on my phone – and then plan out the week’s meals on a week-at-a-time calendar.
So far, all the meals this week were a success!
- Tuesday’s Stuffed Green Peppers (minus the mustard) and Spinach and Strawberry Salad with Newman’s Raspberry and Walnut dressing – my FAV!
- Wednesday’s Corn Flake crusted chicken strips. (just like it sounds: crush corn flakes and then dip the chicken in egg, then cornflakes and bake. yum!)
- Thursday’s Turkey burgers. (is it weird that I had no idea how to use coriander?)
I’m already thinking about the new recipes I can try next week. Any suggestions?
