Needing recipe ideas

Hi mommas, I’m in need of new ideas for dinner for my family. It’s my boyfriend, my 2 year old and me. Preferably meals that are easy to prepare. Tell me your favorite sheet pan, crock pot meals or any other ideas. I’m a young mom learning. Thank you in advance!

Chicken tortellini soup, fried rice with choice of meat, lasagna in a crockpot comes out better than oven baked, homemade pizza, potatoe or pasta salad, chicken parmesan.

Also, cheeseburger meatloaf. Season a pound of ground beef with steak seasonings, add a cup of shredded cheddar cheese, a half cup of breadcrumbs, a tablespoon of mustard, a tablespoon of ketchup, and a tablespoon of relish. Form into a loaf on a sheet pan sprayed with cooking spray. Surround with diced potatoes and bake at 400 for about 30 minutes (or until potatoes are browned).

Check out the group Easy Recipes for busy families. They’re AWESOME
here’s a simple recipe I feel in love with. I also make homemade refried beans and Spanish rice on the stove, really simple. And I bumped the temp to high to cook in half the time.

Do you Pinterest? There are TONS of ideas on there. For an easy “sheet pan” you can chop up whatever meat you like (sausage like kielbasa works great), veggies like: onion, peppers (red, green, orange, yellow-whatever you like and have on hand), cauliflower chunks, broccoli, tomato - the veggie options are wide and can vary depending on what you like and have on hand - toss with some olive oil and spices and bake for about 20 mins at 350.

Tuna casserole, tacos, meatloaf, spaghetti, chicken casserole recipe - cut up chicken breasts, cook in butter in a frying pan. Put the cooked chicken in a casserole dish (8x8). In a bowl, combine a can of cream of broccoli soup, 1/2 cup mayo, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and 1 teaspoon of curry (yellow Indian spice). Curry isn’t super spicy. Now put frozen broccoli or canned asparagus on top of the chicken. Mix up wet ingredients and put it over the cooked chicken. Put shredded cheese on top of the wet ingredients. Bake 35O degrees for 30 minutes. Serve over rice :blush:. Enjoy !

Make tuna macaroni salad potato salad put roast in crock pot onions carrots poratoes. Food for 3 days. Make sandwichs cut put in fridge.

Look up diff types of pastas. Stuffed noodles are easy and awesome! Can stuff with meat, stuffing or rice. Nachos n tacos are good n quick and full of healthy veggy options.
