I am starting to do a little more meal planning than I used to…

It might come as a shock to most having a real food blog that I have not always been much of a meal planner, but I like to cook what sounds good to me that day! Ha!

But with 3 hungry kids plus one husband to feed, and a schedule that isn’t getting any less busy, it is helpful to have a reliable rotation of some nourishing quick prep dinners that I don’t have to put too much thought into.

Last week I was so thankful for this dinner rotation. My daughter had a day off school so we played hookie from preschool for her sister and my husband took the day off so we could take advantage of the butterfly exhibit at a local garden.

My big girls were great species spotters! I think we found all of the butterfly types in the book!

Cait wasn’t a huge fan of the butterflies fluttering by her head but she eventually came around and had a fun morning with her sisters. I think this picture captures her thoughts the best – she kept her eyes on those flying butterflies!

When we got home it also just happened to be the first real “spring” feeling day and we literally soaked it in all day outdoors. As much as I do love to cook, I love being in the sun even more and it was nice to have a simple but nourishing dinner that didn’t require a lot of prep to make that evening.

Our spring and summer won’t be getting any less busy with the beach 5 minutes down the road, splash pads to be splashed at, woods to be explored, and parks to be played at, so I’m growing to love my new dinner plan!

I hope you enjoy this nourishing dinner meal as much as we have been. Any leftovers can be packed up in the school thermoses or used at home for a quick warm up meal too!

    I can hardly think of a yummier soup– and that perfect mushroom on top. I love curry and this version is beautiful!

    I made a sweet Gram Marsala from a recipe. It would be divine in this recipe. I am always looking for hamburger meat recipes.

    This soup sounds so very delicious! I love the combinations of flavours working here.
    Also ~ As I tend to see soups recipes as a ‘guideline’, I will try this one with the veggies I have in the fridge!
    Thanks Renee!
