Several of the food blogs which I follow have talked about having theme nights and how much easier it makes planning meals. Recently I started watching “The Food Nanny” on BYU-TV (we just got U-verse) and she is all about theme nights.
Last summer I started doing salads on Thursdays, but often just did the same chef salad week after week. Luckily, my kids and husband never complained, and actually liked it. This fall/winter I did less salads, but added several soups each Friday. It did make things easier that I didn’t have to think as much about what to make for dinner those nights.
Now I think I’m ready to try it each night. We’ll see how it works.
As I tried to catalog my recipes I found MOST of my favorites fell into the category of Comfort Foods, so I’m putting that for 2 nights, plus we are often at my moms house for Sunday dinners.
I’m not so excited that for Monday night, my birthday, the boys picked mac & cheese & hotdogs, but I doubt I’ll want to cook much either, at least until Paul is done with school in a few weeks.
I’m curious, has anyone else tried theme nights? If so, has it worked for your families?
