Somehow, every week, and I mean EVERY single week, I get to Thursday and I’m running on fumes. Like glazed over, mental fog, just-need-a-bubble-bath-and-glass-of-wine kind of fumes. FUMES!
Usually at this point in the week I’ve been all over town to dance, school, the gym, or to 20 grocery stores to find the specific brand of Almond Milk we like to drink (which, by the way did everyone decide to start drinking almond milk in 2017 or is there some kind of almond shortage I’m unaware of, cause it has been a challenge to find lately?!?), and then all of the sudden it’s dinnertime.
Oh yeah, I’m the one responsible for conjuring up some sort of magical dish everyone likes and will happily eat without complaint (I know mythical world…sigh!), and I made it a resolution to cut back on the drive-thru (sigh, again).
OR enter life scenario #2, which I was reminded of during spin class just the other day…
Our class instructor said “Guys! It’s Thursday! Tomorrow is Fri-yay! Wahoo!” And for maybe a split-second I got really excited and then came back down to reality and looked over at my spin-friend and said “You know, being a mom with two toddlers, Friday’s don’t really mean what they used to anymore” to which she responded “Yeah, that’s cause everyday is a Monday!”
Now my friend and I were both joking slightly, but I’m not joking about being low on some serious E-N-E-R-G-Y by dinner time and that’s with eating the healthy “energy boosting” foods I’ve been so focused on consuming this year.
So what’s a tired mom, wife, roommate, girl/guy boss, city dweller who only has space for a few pots and pans to do? Enter, solution! SHEET PAN DINNERS my friend! Sheet Pan Dinners!!!
Yes, they’ve been around but I’m just now putting these dinner-time survival recipes into our meal rotation and believe me I am wondering why I didn’t do so prior to January 2017. Sometimes I can be a bit slow to trends…
