List of Dinner Ideas

1. Simple Organization

Don’t feel like you need to do something NEW every week! Rotate through a generic schedule, even if for one month so there is less thinking about what to prepare and make.

Crock pot Mondays, Taco Tuesdays, Whatever Wednesdays, Leftover Thursdays, Out to eat Fridays, Order-in Saturdays, Family Meal Sundays
Craving Something Specific? Mexican, Italian, American, Greek, French, Asian, etc. Sometimes this can immediately trigger a certain foods you can whip up, or dial for.

3.  Write It Down

Simply write down what a simple week could look like for your dinners, then KEEP that paper and use it next week or the week after.  After two-three weeks of keeping your meals, you have yourself a plan that works for you and your family.
