Dinnertime and Meal Planning as a Family of Four

(This post is sponsored by OXO, a brand we love and use in every single room of our home!) In high school, I ran track and field.  My favorite race was the 1600m– four laps around a track, a mile, in case you’re not well versed in metric.  As a competitor, you spent the beginning of the race setting your pace and the first two laps were relatively easy—don’t burn out, don’t lose pace with the pack.  In many ways the third lap, though, really decided whether or not you would have a shot.

We tried this …
