What’s for Dinner?

The eternal question of “what’s for dinner” has plagued many a parent. While I fully admit that occasionally we have ‘cold cereal night’ or ‘fend for yourself night’, I do usually make a meal for us to share. I’ve tried a number of different ways to create and stick to a menu. The method that works the best for me is a simple list. I make a list of 14 meals and then make sure I have the ingredients for all of them. Each day I pick a recipe off my list that sounds good to me. Once the recipe has been used, I cross it off the list. The list I am currently working off is:

Comfort Chicken – recipe to be posted later.
Haystacks
Quesadilla Bar
Breakfast for dinner
Tomato Basil Chicken
Scalloped Potatoes and Ham
Bruschetta Chicken
Skinny Tortilla Soupthis one is on the stove for dinner tonight!!
Garlic Chicken with Fragrant Rice – We already had this one. It was NOT a keeper.
Hamburgers
Garlic & Brown Sugar Baked Chicken – I’ll post this one if it turns out well.
Slow Cooked Italian Chicken
Herbed Chicken and Vegetables
Creamed Tuna over Biscuits

This method works best for me because I can decide each day what sounds good or what I have time to make and know that I have all the ingredients I’ll need. It allows for changes in my schedule as well as my moods.

Now it’s your turn. Leave me a comment and share how you manage your menu.
