If I've said it once I've said it a thousand times, but I can never seem to hoard enough dinner ideas to choose from throughout the busy work week shuffle.
Starting the week with a few ideas picked out or tried and true recipes in mind makes the weekday grind go much more smoothly in my corner of the world.
Usually I start by taking a look at what I have on hand and then drum up dinner ideas based on an ingredient or two I know I have in my pantry or fridge.
