I don’t know about you, but I’m in a bit of a dinner rut. I think it has something to do with the seasons being slightly out of whack. Supposedly it’s spring here in Ontario, but as I look out the window while I’m typing this there are snowflakes fluttering through the air, so I’m not convinced. Also, the last of the winter produce is looking a little lifeless on the store shelves, but the spring stuff hasn’t made much of an appearance yet, and I’m certain this is contributing to my lack of motivation when it comes to planning my meals these days.
So, this week I decided to spruce up my suppers by taking a walk though our recipe archives and putting the dinner spotlight on some old favourites that haven’t seen much time on the table lately. I’ve created a mix of make-ahead dinners that I can cook up on Sunday and store in the fridge for later in the week; seasonal soups that will keep me warm while the weather is still cool; healthy burgers that remind us all that the BBQ will be back in regular rotation before we know it; and a favourite weekend entertaining recipe that can be made in the slow cooker while I clean up the yard and pack away the sleds for another year.
Heck, I’m feeling pretty motivated already, and in case you’re stuck in the same supper rut as me, here are recipes to spruce up your meal plan while you wait for spring to arrive.
