I forgot to mention that last nights meal resulted in 8 servings. Which means I had freezer meals! This is the key to keeping healthy meals on the table when you have a busy life! Make extra of freezer friendly meals like pasta and tonights indian dinner. Then on the nights when you don't have time, ta da, dinner is served! And if you do this often enough, you will have a good selection in your freezer so it's not a week of pasta or chili or curry or whatever.
And last night's meal wasn't huge, one standard box of rotini, 1 lb of steak, half a head of cauliflower and broccoli (already cut up!) and a green and yellow zucchini. Talk about spreading your food dollar around!
