What’s for Dinner? Week of September 22, 2013

weekof9.22.2013

Fall is in the air!  Our pool is officially closed and that always makes me feel a little sad, as if the summer closes with it.  But then I went shopping for mums and decorated our front porch for fall, and it reminded me how much I also love the autumn season.  The crisp cool air, football, pumpkins and sweatpants.  All great things that I am looking forward to this year.  Although fall is in the air, the weather in our area has been a beautiful 75 degrees, so we are certainly still making use of our grill.  As you pull up your annuals and put away your lawn furniture, don’t forget to still utilize that grill as long as it’s nice.

When choosing the menu for this week I really tried to focus on having different types of protein for each meal.  Don’t get me wrong, chicken is very versatile and is delicious many different ways, however sometimes chicken over and over again gets a little old.  I purposely tried to mix it up this week.  There is everything from fish to pasta to steak to, of course, chicken.  You have to include good ‘ol chicken at least one night a week 🙂   So create your menu, make your shopping list and do that grocery trip once for the week.  Enjoy the meals this week, as well as all the time with the family sitting around the dinner table.  And don’t forget to the make the first bite count!
