Dinner Ideas!

What’s for dinner, Mom?

This is the question nearly every mom faces around 5:00 when the kids are suddenly starving. If you’re an organized meal planner with every dinner prepped in advance, then you can answer this question with ease, and head back to the homework.

If you’re like the rest of us, though, you respond like a deer in the headlights, with panicked eyes and an urge to run in the other direction.

Let’s face it, most moms are scrambling to come up with dinner ideas around 5:00 each night, and while you might be able to pass off eggs and bacon as a fun “breakfast for dinner” theme once in a while, it won’t work daily. It truly takes an endless supply of ingenuity, inspiration and endurance to put dinner on the table night after night, especially a dinner that your will make your kids smile.
