The last week has been a bit odd. I won’t go into all of the details, but suffice to say that things have been busy at work, at home, and with the exercise schedule, so it’s been hard to have the motivation to post. It’s also been hard to post when there isn’t always something good to post. Writing We had PASTA for dinner! is not nearly as interesting as when I post something about a scandal or stroganoff, I know. Of course, if I could manage to tie together scandal AND stroganoff, I’d probably have hits out the ying-yang…but that’s neither here nor there.
The gist of it is that I spent the bulk of this past week out of town for a funeral, and my travel schedule meant that I left dh in charge of dinner for 3 weeknights out of 5 – so we planned three “one-off” dinners: ravioli one night, “brinner” another night, and homemade pizza for the third night. This coming week will be a bit easier, since we’re both expecting to be in the same state, so I have a couple of crock pot dinners on the meal plan. I also have a couple that I’m going to post from prior weeks that I hadn’t yet posted; these are recipes that I think have promise, although I will note the mods I suggest for lighter attempts than what I did.
So, there it is. I may even be inspired to post a selection of our go-to “one-offs” that are generally quick and inexpensive. In fact, I think that’s what I’ll do now.
