EAT | July Dinners

July. Now, July was a different animal for our meals. I had had about enough with my go-to, boring, easy meals and decided to pull out my menu folder.

Generally I will go online to find recipes, but, as all analog-paper-lovers go, I have an ever-growing stack of paper recipes that I’ve pulled from magazines or collected from cooking classes.

I went through these and found a handful of recipes that would fill up a week’s worth of food and got to cooking.

Boy am I glad I did. Now I have new go-tos and they feel fresh and easy.

Here you go, with links to the recipes if I could find them online.

EAT | May Dinners

I’m aware it’s August. That being said, I’m barely aware that it’s mid-August because somehow the last three weeks (months?) have flown by and I cannot account for the time.

Luckily I’ve been keeping huge post-its in the drawer with our meals so you all can keep up with what we’ve been eating. (Let’s be honest, these posts are only for me at this point.)

Here we go.

EAT | March Dinners

I know it’s May. I’m a bit behind. That’s actually a pretty accurate statement for my life in general right now. I mean, I spent yesterday finally filing emails that had been in my inbox for a few months (and this is from someone who usually keeps less than 25 emails in my inbox period), so as you can imagine writing about our dinners hasn’t exactly been top priority.

However. Now that I’ve gotten a lot of other little things off my list, here come the meals.

EAT | January Dinners

Between me and my husband we have a laundry list of things we don’t or can’t eat. Then throw a toddler into the mix. This makes it difficult to feed all of us with one meal, so I usually end up making three different meals almost every night.

Last year I kept a basic record of what we ate for dinner for about five months straight. It helped me remember what we ate so I could keep from repeating dinners too frequently, and also gave me ideas of what to make when I’d forgotten some of the things we would eat.

I cook almost every night of the year so it’s helpful to keep our approved dinner options at hand. This year I will (try to) post a monthly “menu” when the month has finished of what we ate each night. It’ll help me remember what I made and remind me to better rotate our meals so we’re not eating the same thing week in and week out, and perhaps help you get some ideas too!

The list below is a basic explanation of our main course. Most nights there is also a cucumber/tomato salad for my husband, or something extra for me, and perhaps I’ll get more thorough as the months go on.
