This is BK’s trick and I’ve adopted it too.
BK likes to plan for one easy dinner component that will go with almost anything – the little black dress of the dinner.
If you think of a basic dinner as a main dish and two sides, he really likes one of those sides to require as little thought as possible, allowing him to give the other two components more attention.
Here are some little black dresses that we like:
- Foccacia bread with oil and vinegar
- Frozen edamame
- Frozen beans and carrots
- Carrots and dip
