There are two challenges that I always seem to face when making weeknight dinners. The first is coming up with a starch component that doesn't take a long time to cook and isn't boring. The other is having a sauce component for a meat dish. This particular meal has good options for both of those issues.

Cooking dinner during the week is the challenge that I, as well as countless others, face on a regular basis. It is this challenge that often pushes us toward the convenient, the processed, the take-out menu. I don't consider any of those things to be bad things. However, when it is all you rely on, then you're not doing yourself any favors. Everything has a time and a place. I'm a firm believer in moderation. When I have the opportunity to not have to face that challenge, I relish it. That's why I love Sunday dinners.
