I was thinking that we could post our favorite recipies or combination of meals that the whole family enjoys. Then when we need more ideas for our families we could reference this thread. I personally plan my meals a month in advance, so this would give me an opportunity to add some new items to my menu. Ill add some of our favorites soon.

Spaghetti (lately they prefer my weird homemade sauce to store-bought sauce)

Tater tot casserole (*I* brown 2 lbs hamburger & drain, mix in 3 cans of green beans, 2 cans of cream of celery, spread in a pan, top with 2.5 lbs of tater tots, and bake for about 90 minutes at 400 - sometimes I put shredded cheese on before the tater tots)

Potato soup (chop potatoes, carrots, celery, onion, bell peppers, simmer til done, drain half the water, make a roux & mix in, add milk & shredded cheese & ham or bacon, mix, heat through)

Breakfast (pancakes or waffles, eggs, bacon or sausage, fruit)

Cheesy tuna mac (2 boxes velveeta shells & cheese, cooked according to directions, stir in 1 can cream of celery, 1lb frozen peas, a couple packets of tuna, spread in greased 9x13, top with crushed crackers & drizzles of melted butter, bake til crackers are crisp)

hotdish (cook pasta, cook hamburger & drain, mix together with corn & cream of celery, season with pepper, onion, whatever - pretty basic, plain, but the kids all love it, my mom used to make various versions of this all the time when I was little)

Hunter stew - not the healthiest but quick, easy, and filling (cook 2 lbs hamburger & drain. Mix in 2 cans of mixed veggies, 2 cans of green beans {we've done beans & corn too, either way is good}, 4 cans of canned spaghetti {like chef boyardee, but I use a generic}. Heat through, serve with bread. Definitely overkill with sodium but we only have it a couple times a year!)

I'll post more when I think of it - it's late and I just can't think of what else the whole family eats with no argument!

I do something similar but I use cooked chicken breasts cut into small pieces and crescent roll to cover the top. I have also used corn bread and have heard it's great with stuffing on top, as well.

Cornflake Candy or Haystacks

2 cups light karo syrup

1 cup of sugar

3 cups PB

6 cups cornflakes

Heat sugar and karo together on stove until sugar is melted, add pb, then add cornflakes. Make sure pot is big enough to stir in flakes. Fold in, dont stir to crush flakes. If mix is too wet add some more flakes. Put out alumnium for and drop my spoonfuls. Let cool.

They last 2 seconds at my house!
