I don’t want you to think I’m a perfect person. I don’t cook from scratch dinners every single night. I try to. But there are the “it’s too hot to stand up not to mention make dinner” days and days when I’m just too exhausted to prep and cook dinner. Sometimes we go out to eat and sometimes we buy a jar of Indian curry simmer sauce, something quick and easy. So, while I want to provide nutritional, home cooked meals for my family every night, that doesn’t always happen.
I just wanted you to know that before we go on.
So here is the menu I have picked out for this week. I threw in a dangerously rich pasta dish, which we don’t usually eat, but sometimes you need to treat yourself.
