I'm embracing the less is more idea when it comes to dinners. We are eating more sandwiches and leftovers and wasting less. This method is a lot easier on the grocery budget as well.
With the impending snowmageddon forecasted for this week, I went ahead and planned meals for the weekend. We woke up with our first round of snow yesterday morning, I knew we weren't going to be eating out so we had glazed pork chops.
Next Saturday, I plan to make Chicken Enchilada Casserole.
