One would think that since I’m a food blogger I have an endless supply of weeknight recipes and I never run out of ideas. This is so wrong in every sense of any way. I’m just like you. I run out of ideas, get in a rut and really don’t want to make dinner at the end of a day.
Or do you know that feeling of going and getting groceries then when you get home you have nothing to make for dinner? That was me last week. Miss K and I went and got groceries and I had this wonderful meal plan figured out.
You’d think this would be a piece of cake. By the time I got done dragging a kid around the grocery store after work. Hauling in the groceries and trying to entertain a kid I was exhausted. I pulled a frozen pizza out and threw it on the grill. Yes I did. Don’t judge. Miss K was ecstatic. She thinks it’s the best thing when we grill pizza and eat dinner out on the patio. In fact every time we sit on the patio she looks at me with big eyes and says Pizza, Pizza? I mean, I made her dream come true!
Are we all nodding our heads in agreement and thinking, “Oh we’ve been there”. Enter this amazing Easy Chicken Fried Rice. It will come together in 30 minutes and your family will be beaming from ear to ear at the new meal. Mom will be happy because we have other stuff to get done at night.
I mean yes I love being in the kitchen slaving away, but we all know we’d rather be somewhere else most of the time or more so we know we have other stuff to get accomplished at night!
