We are in such a bad dinner and lunch rut lately. Sooo good on eating healthy before vacation, and now that we are back, not so good. Plus I have not felt very motivated in the kitchen either.

Today for lunch= Taco John's taco salad. Oh yeah!!!!!

Dinner the last 3 of 4 nights= frozen pizza. Yummy, but need to get out of the rut!


  • Well, not all of these are crazy healthy but these dishes are in our rotation:

    Pulled pork (I'm making it for tonight.  It's not a weekly dinner)
    Tacos or enchiladas
    Homemade pizza - cheese, pepperoni, taco
    Chicken - grilled, baked, etc.
    Alfredo - with or without chicken/veggies
    Spaghetti/lasagna/chicken parm
    Pork chops
    Breakfast for dinner - biscuits and gravy, pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage, etc.
    Hot dogs - on nights when Son has a game and we need something quick (I like to roll them up in crescent rolls with a slice of cheese and bake)

    As you can see, we eat a lot of chicken.  Our grocery store has chicken breasts for $0.99/lb at least once a month, so I stock up.  We've got about 36lbs of chicken breasts in our freezer right now.  I stock up on other meats as well when they're on sale.  Whatever we have in the freezer that week determines what meals we have.

  • 36 lbs of chicken!!! WOWZERS!!!! (But you have kids, so you'll go through it quicker than me.)
  • I think I bought close to 20 lbs of chicken for the two of us the last time it was cheap. I like a good deal!

    When I get lazy in the kitchen, I learned to love my crock pot! I've been googling new recipes to get away from my usual chili/pot roast meals it.

    If I'm feeling super healthy, I love salads with spinach, chicken, berries, and almonds.
