It's been a bit crazy around here. Seems like every night last week we had 2-3 activities. I barely cooked much less tried a new recipe. I stuck to our old favorites when I did. BBQ chicken sandwiches with homemade BBQ sauce, spaghetti and meat sauce, steak, and I don't know what else! One night was leftover buffet. This is when I take out all the viable food in the fridge, heat it up, cut up some veggies if there aren't any leftover, and call it dinner.
What does dinner look like in your house when you get busy?
I heard on the radio this morning that after a hiatus more consumers are going out to restaurants again. Apparently the Great Recession kept some families home in an effort to cut household expenses. Did you and your family start cooking at home more when the Recession hit? If so do you go to restaurants more now? We generally go out either Friday or Saturday night for dinner and sometimes will grab lunch or brunch out one weekend day too. Sometimes it's at a nicer restaurant. Other times when we've been running errands and driving kids around all day it's the local sub shop or a diner. This is a pattern we've had for years. I still prefer home cooking the best!
Look for a new recipe this week!
