I couldn't find a thread covering this but I could have missed it if there is one. Anyhow, I don't know about anyone else but I am so tired of just figuring out WHAT to make for dinner each night!! I get stuck making the same dishes and it's getting old fast!! Please help by giving us all some interesting and easy ideas!!!

It has to be simple for me or I won't do it.

The following are some simple ideas I fix from time to time:

Chili (using ground beef, canned tomatoes and a mix) served over a baked potato or rice

Hamburger stroganoff (also with ground beef, can of mushroom soup, sour cream, sprinkle of nutmeg) served over rice or noodles.

Tacos (with fixings)

I'll try to think of some more.

I tend to get stuck in ruts too, especially when preparing weeknight meals that I want to take no more than 30 minutes to prep and cook! Tonight is homemade pizza, not sure yet if I will grill it or do it in the oven.

Well Monday night I made some of my good old spaghetti...lots of it. I put the extra sauce, and there was lots of extra sauce too and put it in those freezer containers. Each container had enough sauce for another meal---I ended up with 5 containers full! So now all I have to do is put the sauce in a microwave safe dish and warm it, cook up some noodles and whip up a salad with Garlic toast/bread and I have dinner!! I do the same with goulash. Both of these dinners always seems to taste better after a bit of time anyhow. So those are my quick ideas for a good quick dinner. But a person can only eat these "2" different dinners every so often!! It's not that I can't cook I'm just burnt out on figuring out "WHAT" to cook. And as many of us agree....the easier the better!!

Default Bagel Pizzas

I am having bagel pizzas for dinner. Typically I go to Kraftfoods.com and they have easy, quick, and really good recipies. I can ALWAYS find something on that website and about 99% of the recipies I have made are delicious!

Either grilled cheese sandwiches with chips and fruit or fetuccini with pesto and a salad. I'm going to let my dd decide.

I like bettycrocker.com, bhg.com (better homes and gardens), or Yahoo foods. Or my cookbooks. Usually there will be a little symbol stating "quick" or "low-fat", or whatever. I had leftover mashed potatoes yesterday and just mixed in cooked chicken, some spinach, and warmed it all up with low-sodium chicken broth. Chicken broth and cream of mushroom soup are both of my saving graces!

I also like this other recipe from betty crocker: cooked chicken with two cans of cream of mushroom, a little bit of sour cream, some mushrooms, and frozen brocooli all mixed up then put a crumbled bisquick mixture on top. Took about 25 minutes altogether. If you look on the website it'll say what to put in the bisquick mixture.
