We didn't make a special meal - ordered in because DD1 was sick. Yummy, though - pizza and salad from one of our favorite places. Have to plan for next week! PS Found this recently. Love the suggestion. Thinking of trying it next week: Six Steps to a Healthy Weeknight Dinner http://www.health.com/health/gallery/0,,20780484,00.html

Here is an idea I tried once - one-pot wonders. I made the Italian Wonderpot. Easy and my family liked it.
