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.
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)
Grilled chicken with marinade (Hawaiian marinade is a personal favorite)
BBQ Beef & Bow Ties
Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup
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!
