DD1 just came in and said, “I only washed one pair of socks in the load of laundry I threw in tonight, and now one of them is missing!”
Ah, the mysterious sock vortex, one of the joys of general household maintenance.
One of the other challenges I’ve dealt with of late is the eternal question, “What’s for dinner?” Generally, I like to cook. But the daily dinner planning seems to drag me down from time to time. We’re in a definitive rut here in Suburbia.
Tonight we had beef tips, which fit the bill of being easy, filling, and warm now that winter seems to have woken up and decided to put in an appearance around here. I served them over rice with green beans and pan rolls. Just like I did last week. Hence, the rut.
So, I’m looking for suggestions. For weeknights, I prefer meals that either can be made in 30 to 45 minutes or put into the crockpot in the morning when I leave for work. I am also toying with trying some crockpot recipes that need four hours or so on high and asking DD2 and Soccer Boy to start them when they get home from school.
What did you have for dinner? What should I try next?
