It’s so easy to get in dinner ruts. The same dinners week after week. Maybe not exactly the same things, but a few of the same repeats and that can get boring real quick. Add in busy schedules to that and any attempt at dinner planning can become even more complicated. I know both of those scenarios all too well.

And let’s not forget the choosy eaters. One doesn’t want this and the other wants that. A typical house with multiple children. It’s hard to please everyone.

    We are totally in a dinner rut right now, so these come at a perfect time! Especially because they have bacon in them so my husband will be extra pleased. ;)
