A Back to School Goal: Exciting Family Dinners

EAT, family meals By August 21, 2013 Tags: , , , , , , , , , No Comments

Summer is so great.  Salad from the garden.  Beach dinners prepackaged at the grocery store.  The 2 for 1 Tuesday Whole Foods pizza deal.  Thankfully there are berries in the garden because I’ve been pretty lax on feeding my family interesting, well-balanced dinners.  A goal I always implement for September is to get life back on track after a summer of fun.  This year at the top of my list for back to school is exciting family dinners.

I wouldn’t say that I’m in a meal rut – I love to cook and develop recipes and experiment.  I’ve just been (gasp) lazy this summer.  Lazy and tired.  So the thought of a meal plan that forces me to experiment is quite exciting.  The plan should eliminate stress, save money at the store and get the kids excited for what is to come.  Mexican has always been a favourite of the family – making our own tacos to assert our personalities and experimenting with spices, meats and fresh ingredients to excite the tastebuds.  (Food fights optional).

So when I created this plan, I’ve slotted in two Mexican-inspired nights.
