For those of you who are just joining, here's a quick recap: I'm in a dinner rut and to get out of it I am working my way through an advanced copy of Dinner: A Playbook. At the beginning of the week I picked some recipes and made a meal plan for seven days. I've also been following some of the author's tips for how to make dinner easy and breezy (which I will recap at the end of the week).
Monday night dinner, Tuesday night dinner, Wednesday night dinner, and here is Thursday night's dinner: nothing? Should I say it? The most over used internet expression right after "best _____, ever." Ok, I'll say it. Dinner on Thursday night was an EPIC FAIL.
Ok, surely I fed my family something for dinner on Thursday night. The original plan was fish tacos, but when I arrived home I found the fish hadn't fully defrosted. I was exhausted so we made turkey and avocado sandwiches (not pictured because, of course; this photo is more dramatic).
The next night I had friends over and we grilled pizzas. Some great topping combos, which hopefully, someday I'll share. Then, on Saturday night, we finally ate the fish, but I didn't make tacos because I had to use up some green beans in my crisper drawer.
So despite having planned on seven nights of meals, I really only did three. That was the end of my Dinner: A Playbook project. I have some thoughts I want to share on the book and I hope to find some time over the holiday weekend to write them up. Stay tuned.
