Simple, Family-Friendly, Weeknight Meals

posted by Andrea | 02/21/2011

What are you making for dinner tonight?

Need a few suggestions?

Even though I try to plan our meals in advance, there are always nights when I’m not sure what to make. I have my favorite meals that I make regularly {maybe too regularly} but sometimes, I just want something different.

However, it needs to be quick, simple, with “normal” ingredients — and I have to be pretty darn sure that we’ll like it!

If you can relate, then you’re in luck! I’ve put together a great list of simple, family-friendly, weeknight meals from some of my favorite food websites.

Enjoy!

1. Chicken Pot Pie — this is my recipe and you can easily make it the night before.

2. Classic Pot Roast — A Farmgirl’s Dabbles

3. Layered Taco Bake — Simple Bites

4. Grilled Cheese Sandwiches — Good Cheap Eats {can’t get much simpler than that!}

5. Cornbread Dressing Chicken Casserole — Food For My Family {another make-ahead meal}

6. Turkey Meatloaf — My Kitchen Addiction

7. Three Cheese Chicken Penne Bake — Tidy Mom

8. Cheddar, Broccoli, and Bacon Stuffed Potatoes — What Megan’s Making

9. Homemade Pizza — here are 7 delicious pizza recipes that are sure to please!

10. Here are nine more delicious, family-friendly casseroles from Life.YourWay

I hope these simple, family-friendly recipes will help you and your busy family enjoy a few extra family meals this week!

Oh, and make sure you check out my FREE meal planning printables to help jump-start your meal planning efforts!

What are your favorite weeknight meals?
