Oh shush you and your but it's Thursday??!! I know. This post was supposed to go up yesterday, but well, yeah, life...and all that.
For the past couple of years now Collin and I have made a point of sitting down (okay fine, we don't actually sit down) and planning dinners for the week. Our schedule typically goes something like this:
Sunday: Cook decent meal
Monday: Have leftovers from Sunday
Tuesday: Cook something quick (30 min or less, preferably less)
Wednesday: Cook decent meal since this is the day I'm home with the boys
Thursday: Has become a open night, we usually either have leftovers from Wednesday (or anything left from Tuesday) or cook something quick - I don't usually plan this meal and if we do end up cooking we use things in the cupboard.
Friday: Pizza or fish night (sometimes take out, sometimes frozen)
A few weeks ago I posted our Wednesday night dinner on Twitter and every Wednesday since then I've felt compelled to do it again. I love hearing people's responses to what they are eating so I decided, hey!, let's start it here on the blog. This also happens to be perfect timing because last night not only did I cook, but I cooked the meal that was on my Winter Soul Season list, white chicken chili with cornbread.
Oh crap. Now I see that I said I was going to make that for a weekend dinner. Oh whatever.
I used the Taste of Home Creamy White Chili recipe and it was fabulous. It had just enough spice to satisfy me, but not too much that Keaton couldn't eat it. I mean, it took some bribing (you can't feed Hutt if you don't eat your soup) and some threatening (no brownies if you don't eat - which, my bad, I never did give him a brownie even though he did eat) but he could eat it and he did eventually eat it. Although Collin came home and said, wow, this is a little spicy.... Anyway, point is, it was delicious and I can't wait to go have leftovers tonight!
So, tell me, what did you have last night for dinner? Or tonight? Or any night this week you choose to share?
PS Yeah, I know, all sorts of classy with my paper towel napkins.
