No More Ice Cream
What I like to do with this recipe, is make it once and eat it twice. What does that mean exactly? My hubby is gone during the week, which means I have to fend for myself Sunday-Wednesday nights. That might not sound so bad but if your like me and live up north, going out to eat isn’t really an option. Instead of grabbing a big spoon, a 5-quart pail of ice cream and sitting down to watch television, I make it once and eat it twice.
Make It Once, Eat It Twice
Monday is usually the cook for myself day. I like to make something, like this recipe, that I can make and eat on Monday and then eat the same meal again on Tuesday. I have two sectional, microwavable plates that I use. The veggies go in one section, the starch (rice, potato, quinoa etc.) in the other and finally the protein goes in the third compartment. Then on Wednesday it’s usually some sort of salad.
Friday Night is Pizza Night
Thursday, Friday and Saturdays are usually my ‘blog recipe’ days, when I make recipes that I will share on my blog. Recipes my husband can taste test and then take any leftovers with him to work. Friday nights have always been pizza nights at our house and always will be. Frozen, homemade or take out, it doesn’t matter because it’s pizza night! Friday night pizza night has been a family tradition for at least 40 years!
