How is meal planning going at your house? New to meal planning? Look in my right sidebar for the link that will direct you to my step by step plan to help you get dinner on the table for your family.
One of the steps in implementing meal planning at your house is to search for recipes. It is important to identify 21 recipes that meet your recipe criteria. By having 21 recipes at hand that you know your family will enjoy, this makes the meal planning process so much easier for you. With 21 recipes you have three weeks of meals at your fingertips without repeating any of the same dinners twice.
As time goes on and you discover and try new recipes that meet your criteria, add to your list- giving you even more choices each week when you develop your weekly meal plan.
Here are the top 21 recipes that I make for my family. You’ll notice many of them are crockpot meals, which is something that is important to me. Since I started meal planning over a year ago, I’ve added to my list and have a nice stockpile of recipes that make their way through our kitchen.
4) Quesadillas (either chicken and cheese or chicken, black bean and cheese)
