I'm Cooking You Dinner

Some of my favorite gifts have been thoughtful experiences rather than objects. Delicious dinners, dog walking for a month, facials, a yoga pass, surprise concert? Yes please. It's fun to dream up what would make someone's life a little easier or a little more fun.

For the month of February I'm cooking a family dinner three nights a week. It's a gift to an overworked mother of two young children. I'd like to share with you what I've done and the dinners I have in mind. If you like, you can cook along side me and give yourself a good excuse to get some healthy dinners on the table.

Week 1: 
Sweet Potato Tacos

Wild Rice Casserole with a Big Salad

Week 2: 
15 Minute Flounder with Simple Roasted Vegetables

Greek Salad with Farro and Kabobs (of your choice - chicken, fish, tofu) 

Peanut Soba Noodles (using carrot and pea pods) with Cucumber Salad *warning this photo is from many moons ago but tastes great!

I'll be back to share weeks 3 and 4 - happy cooking!


  1. Wow! These all look fabulous. And I actually think my kids would eat them...

  2. Thanks Natalia! Please let me know what you try and and how your kids respond!

  3. Hi Sarah, I just found your blog and am giddy with excitement - I plan to spend the evening browsing through your archives :) And wow, what an extremely nice thing to do for an overworked friend. Great idea!
