What’s for supper?” or lunch or dinner or breakfast or snack?!
I wish I had a dime for every time I’ve heard those words?
Although the question is viable, it gets so tiring hearing it.
By the time my husband or my kids ask me for the nth time, I’ve already been asking myself over and over.
You would think coming up with meal ideas would get easier as the years go by, but sometimes it seems to get harder and harder.
I’ve often thought about writing down about 30 meal ideas and just going back over them every month. Actually, isn’t that what most of us do? We probably don’t have 30 meal idea, but maybe 10 or so favorite meals we stick to all the time.
Here’s my list:
1. hamburgers and fries
2. roast beef and mashed potatoes
3. chicken quesadillas
5. spaghetti and garlic bread
6. beans and cornbread
7. meatloaf and green beans
8. vegetable beef soup
9. chili and dogs
…Nope, I can only think of 9.
10. Pizza!! Our family’s favorite.
Ok. So 10 meals, mostly beef related (we raise cattle), and most of them I can fix on the fly.
11. Chicken and dumplings
12. Cube steaks and mashed potatoes
13. Cowboy Ranch Beans
14. Chicken Fettuccini
15. and something I just recently started fixing– BBQ Ribs from amazingribs.com (and they are amazing!)
At any rate, coming up with ideas, and remembering meal plans is always a struggle. But with this section on Life With A Farmer, I plan to load all my recipes and ideas.
I would love to hear from others, and share your recipes, meal ideas, cooking techniques, and family traditions concerning food, here on Life With A Farmer.
