How often do you find that it is dinner time and you don't have a clue what you are going to cook for dinner?

When this happens it is usually good old hamburger helper that I fall back on! Or frozen pizza!

  • Too many nights are like this! It has been so hot around here lately, and when it is HOT, I don't want to eat. And if I am not hungry, I'm not inspired to cook. So, I ask the family for suggestions, and then about 2 hours later we figure out something...*sigh* maybe someday I'll get organized enough to plan menus and then follow that plan!

  • I'm a menu-planner so everything is laid out for the whole week. Kids don't like it? Tough.

  • About half the time, though lately I'm getting better about it. I do have some quick fall-back meals though that are still homemade.
