Meal Plan April 7

We are good at planning but not always great at execution -- particularly when it comes to Sunday night dinner. We liked to make things on Sundays that stretch. Roast chicken. Pot roast. Pulled pork. The problem is that these things really require us to take things out of the freezer on Saturday and we are very, very bad at that. Very bad.

And so on Sundays we often find ourselves scrambling to fine something for dinner. It's a not really a big deal. Since we do our grocery shopping on Sunday it's arguably the best day of the week to have to make a new plan. But then our Sunday meals get pushed to Monday and I feel like I'm repeating myself. But that's life. That's how we eat and well, sometimes we get really good ideas. Pulled pork is usually served on buns here (and then leftovers used for tacos or enchiladas) but I was reading cookbooks on Sunday and came across pulled pork served on waffles. We're SO having that for dinner tonight. And last night we got to have steaks on the grill and I'm so happy it's grill season again.

Last week I also learned that black bean burgers take OMG SO LONG to make. They were yummy and the recipe made 14 so I have a bunch of them in the freezer I can pull out for lunches but I am so not making them completely from scratch on a Friday night again. Friday night dinners should be easy.
