What do you make for dinner when you don't know what to make for dinner??

Do you have an old stand-by that is a shoe-in in case you can't think of what to make? What's your family's favorite dish?

  • Hmm, that would be tonight. It's usually take out night, but with the nasty weather I'm not heading out to pick anything up. If hubby makes it back before dinner time I might see if he wants Chinese and will go get it. Otherwise, it will be homemade chicken nuggets.

  • If we don't feel like making the dinner recipes we have for the week, then it is take out night. We usually will do one take out night each week. That is tonight actually, for I don't feel like making the 3 envelope chicken that's on the menu. I'll do it tomorrow.

  • Hamburger Helper if we are stretching paychecks or just too lazy to really cook, lol. Doesn't happen often though, I can't stand it.

  • I make sure that I keep Baking Mix and Syrup on hand at all times! I have a really nice "hotel-style" waffle maker, and it only takes me about 10 minutes to make HUGE Waffles for the whole family and hubby loves it! Also, my hubby likes Rotini noodles in tomato Sauce with a little butter...REALLY easy!
