Proof that I do more than just knit. 

It’s nine o’clock on a Wednesday night and I am wiped. out.  I might actually be too tired to write two coherent thoughts down.  So I’ll leave you with one. 

If you struggle with what to make every night for dinner (and hate shopping 3 times a week for just one more thing that you forgot the first time around), go get Saving Dinner by Leanne Ely.  She lays out the year by seasons, then for each week there is a list of 5 meals (complete with ideas for sides), recipes and a shopping list for that week.  It is wonderful.  It’s a life saver for a busy mom.  Tonight we had Asian Burritos with Ginger Salsa.  It was a little bit out of the norm for us – hamburger with hoisin sauce, soy sauce and cayenne pepper provided the base – but it received rave reviews from both kids and my husband.  It would not be a stretch to switch out the hamburger for fish or chicken. 

I’ve had this book for about two years, and I keep coming back to it whenever life gets hectic.
