{dinner-time blues}

Sometimes I get the dinner-time blues. When I’m not in the routine of planning meals and thinking ahead I often have to scramble to get dinner on the table in the evening. The thing about kids is they always need dinner. and lunch. and breakfast. Arghhh. This can be so tough to manage.

I’m always looking for a better way to manage meal planning. There are so many online resources, plans and ways to organize recipes. I have a million cookbooks and some easy go-to dinners. I know that if I plan ahead my life runs so much smoother during the week. But I think coming up with meals, shopping for groceries, feeding our family with healthy ingredients & staying on a budget while doing all of that will always be a bit of a challenge for me. I have been guilty of feeding my kids popcorn and yogurt for dinner {and they occasionally eat z bars for breakfast on the way to school}. Somehow {with help from Aaron & some pantry/freezer staples} we eat everyday!

Here are a few of my go-to dinner options:

Some type of pasta dish with whatever I have on hand or Katrina’s Spicy Chicken Pasta

Panfi’s Famous Pasta Sauce

Tacos or Mexican Mountains

Some kind of version of this Veggie Soup or Taco Soup

We also eat “Breakfast for Dinner” or Pasta w/ butter & Parmesan cheese.

How do you plan meals? What are your go-to meals?
