I’m sure we’re like every other family with busy weeknights headed off to one activity or another or even just trying to get our vegetables transplanted into our garden before we’re too late.
(Yes, those seedlings still need to get in the ground. I keep hoping I’ll wake up one morning and it’s just been done for me. Maybe for Mother’s Day? )
But really, I know for me it seems like 5 o’clock has blasted it’s way into my house every day before I’ve had much of a chance to breathe and the minutes til dinner time move faster than any other during the day.
While I’m not one to make a complete menu plan for the month, I do have a general idea of the meals I’ll be making each night during the week. Otherwise, I think I’d still be scratching my head wondering what I am going to prepare for dinner while everyone stares at me wondering what in the world they are going to eat.
Umm, at least I bet that’s what would happen. It’s not like I really know about that or anything.
One of our favorite quick-fix meals on the busiest of nights is a simple cheeseburger salad. It’s like a magic meal it comes together so quickly.
Here’s how I make it.
And you know what?
Now that I think of it, this easy meal leaves my husband and son plenty of time to go plant those vegetables for me.
