Are you looking for ways to get out of the daily "What's for dinner?"
There are ways to spice up your homemade meal, while still saving you time and having fun!
Why not try to plan ahead, switch it up or theme it?!!
You can remove the boring from your meals by cutting up your veggies, portioning out your protein and grains for the week ahead.
This way you remove the ‘ugh’ I have to cut up veggies and wait for the rice to cook!! You can go right into cooking and you can be eating within 10 minutes too!
Theme your meals!!
Even if you don’t make a complete themed meal. It will make it whimsical and help with getting conversations started – I.e. not turning on the TV!
Mexican night and put out a salsa with your meal
It is Italian pasta night!
Use naan bread for your wraps
I know we get into mindless routines when we make dinner, but why not change it up? If you always make the sides get someone in your family to switch the main meal with you! Share the duties. Get everyone involved. You will notice the time will go by much faster!
Invite people over for a simple impromptu meal once a week! Friends, family or a neighbour! Make it a potluck! This way you get to try something new too!
What are your ways in removing boredom? I would love for you to share.
