Howdy-Ho friends!   So glad you were able to pop-in to my little slice of the web.   Let’s talk about dinner plans for a second shall we?  And by a second, I mean like 5 minutes, so sit back and relax for a bit.   Why does meal planning have to be so hard?   Like, can I just set a plate in front of my kids and they eat whatever is on it?   I feel like I am the president of the Parents of Picky Eaters Club (PPEC for short).

We find something my kids like, and they want it again.  So we make it again a week or so later, and then the 3rd time you make it they don’t really want it again – say what?  you loved this last time, you said it was your favorite!   I read somewhere once that most families have a rotation of 21 meals that they serve on a regular basis – but I had a hard time coming up with the list below, so I’m not sure 21 is correct!

Here is a list of our “go-to” meals for our dinner meal plans.

Sloppy Joes
Chicken & Rice Bake
Chili & Noodles (childhood favorite of mine)
Cowboy Casserole (introduced to my kids by their Auntie Lyns)
OMG Chicken (pretty sure I have blogged about this before)
Simple Chicken
Grilled chicken with marinade (Hawaiian marinade is a personal favorite)
Tacos/Quesadillas/Nachos
BBQ Beef & Bow Ties
Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup
Chicken Alfredo
Ravioli Bake

An Insta-Pot is definitely on my Christmas/Birthday wishlist for this year — because baseball season is almost upon us and we will be super busy!   My friend Kathleen has so many wonderful recipes that she has shared with me, I am looking forward to getting to try them myself!

What are some of your favorite recipes for busy week nights?   Please share them!

    Same thing happens at my house with the kids. Can’t win! I wonder if we have 21-ish meals that we regularly rate? It would be hard to come up with them all. Insta Pot is on our list too. I’m so excited to learn what it can do.
