Nothing major happened in my kitchen this week. Unless you count meals and snacks for everyone! On Saturday I said to hy husband – out loud – that I was so tired of coming up with meals every day. I’m just feeling so burnt out. It’s not easy coming up with all the meals and snacks for a family of 7, then we send my father in law next door supper 6 days a week. Per his request, we don’t send anything on Sundays.
So I am officially declaring Sundays my day off from the kitchen. Everyone is on their own. I will make sure that there is sandwich stuff, including plenty of homemade bread, or leftovers. I know I will have a mess to clean up on Monday. I always have a huge mess to clean up after the family has been in the kitchen. sigh…. I’m hoping a day of rest will relieve this burnt out feeling. And that I will be inspired to cook again.
I found this Free printable oven friendly dinner menu the other day. I’m adding two of the crock pot recipes to my menu this week. They look really good and, most importantly, easy!
Now…. to answer the question that I get asked about a hundred times a day……….What’s For Dinner?
