Meal Planning can be a challenge, especially for busy moms. You’re running the kids back and forth to and from school, to baseball practice and birthday parties. The house needs to be picked up. The dog needs shots, so you have to take him to the vet. Your in-laws are coming to stay in two weeks. Coming up with meal ideas can be stressful. When it comes time to make dinner, you’re searching through the fridge and pantry, trying to come up with something creative. After 20 minutes, you give up and pick up the phone and order pizza.
Sometimes ordering pizza is just what a busy mom needs. No cooking, no cleaning and no dishes! However, if you’re trying to stay on track, having a repertoire of meal ideas can help you stick to your budget.
That’s why I created this list of 31 Unique Meal ideas to take the guesswork out of dinner. Many of the meals listed have recipes right here on the blog. Simply search for the recipe in the search bar and print out the ingredients and instructions on the recipe card at the end of the post.
Find a cute binder at your office supply store or on Amazon and print out the meal ideas list and recipes, hole punch them and keep the binder in your cupboard. Next week when you sit down to meal plan, you’ll have 31 unique meal ideas! Take the stress out of meal planning. I really hope this helps you busy moms out there. Let me know how you like the ideas by leaving a comment on this post. If you have any questions or suggestions, please let me know. I love having your feedback!
Have a fantastic day and enjoy the meal ideas. ♥
