My initial reaction was, “But what about family dinners?!”

Family dinner time is the most important thing to me. It’s something I’m a stickler about. No matter what. Even if you aren’t hungry and you’re not going to eat. You will sit at the table for family dinner. 

Not at the TV (except for pizza & movie night). Not with phones and tablets. Together as a family.

So I knew this new schedule would get in the way of that. Among other things. 

Such a bummer and a total shift in our lives for the next few months.

Although he will be missing out on family dinner time, I love knowing that the food I make is family style, which means there’s always a lot of it and it’s easily reheatable. So even if he is eating the dinner I made for lunch the next day, I know he will love and appreciate it all the same.

Like these Crispy Black Bean Sweet Potato Baked Burritos. They’re totally easy to make so even though it’s just my kids and I, I don’t feel like I’ve wasted a bunch of time cooking.

Plus, they’re made with inexpensive, but whole food ingredients, making it simple to make a whole tray of them. You could probably even get away with doubling the recipe and freezing it for a later day when you just aren’t in the mood to cook.

I’m all about that.
