Dinner ideas!! I am so sick of making the same dinner!! HELP!

We don't eat red meat or pork, but I use ground turkey for anything that calls for ground beef. With that said, what are your families favorite meals????

  • I hope you eat chicken, my family eats this like crazy! cook 1 and 1/2 lbs chicken breast with 1 pkg taco seasoning and 1 can diced peppers. I cup lowfat sour cream, i can reduced fat cream of chicken soup and i 8 oz package reduced fat cheddar cheese. Put in whole grain tortillas and bake at 350 for about 45 minutes, cover with tinfoil! I add diced tomatoes with green chiles sometimes, and you can make it with just mushrooms instead of chicken, there is never ANY left!

  • Google crockpot recipes, I have found that the crockpot saved my sanity, I throw it all in around noon and it is done by dinnertime. There are so many things you can make in the crockpot and you only get one pot dirty and its less stress for you.

  • zucchini and eggplant are plentiful right now from our garden. Mix with a can of diced tomatoes, chicken broth, chopped onion, garlic and penne pasta.

  • I make a tortilla soup with ground turkey that my family and friends love.Kind of like chili but not as thick and its not chili.I buy the mix in specialty food stores here but you can order it online Bear Creek it is located in Texas.I modify it by adding frozen corn to up the veggie value.Oh they have great foods but order plain package not gift saves lots of money.
