You ever feel like there isn’t enough time to do all the things you need to be doing?  For me, it’s running the kids to and from school, homework, naps, laundry, extra curricular activities, house work, on the J, O, B work, running errands, chores, grocery shopping, planning and cooking meals that occupy my day.  And obviously,  I find myself not having enough time to finish all the things I should be getting done on top of it all.  Even when I do have downtime, my mind is racing about things I need to be doing.  Cooking and meal planning takes up a good chunk of my days.  And I try not to succumb to eating out.  Cause for one, it’s not the healthiest option and two, it expensive. So of course, I’m all about the easy meals. The strogonoff  I made this week is as basic as basic can get.  I probably shouldn’t be blogging about it. It’s that easy.  But what kind of food blogger would I be if i didn’t include the easiest recipes in my repertoire?  As my daughter would say, “easy peezy lemon squeezy!”  Hope you like it the way my family likes it!!  Pause….they don’t just like it, they LOVE it!
