Our Stand By....
Do you notice yourself making the same meals over and over? I definitely fall into that category - for a few reasons: I become obsessed with something and make it over and over, I run out of ideas, or I'm desperate to make something we all like (there are very few meals that everyone likes).
Enter our "stand by" meal. Do you have one? We have a few meals that I make very often - cheeseburgers, pizza, and different seasonal meals. I am spoiled to have a great roadside farm stand just a couple of miles from my house. This whole summer we've been enjoying many of the same fruits and veggies - and loving it!
This meal is a very typical one that we've been enjoying all summer
This chicken never fails to disappoint. The balsamic bbq glaze is the perfect complement to the grilled chicken - and what can I say about fresh corn? Yum.
We have been loving these potatoes all summer - I love the little red ones, they cook so quickly and have such a creamy flavor. I still have a few herbs in my dying little planter and with a splash of lemon juice and butter - voila, a perfect side dish.
So, what's your fallback or stand by dinner?
