Thursday Thirteen: 13 Favorite Meals

I often chuckle when I read blogs or menu plans and the author states that she's trying to branch out from the same old week's worth of meals that she always makes. I don't smile or laugh because there is something wrong with that; it's just that I have the opposite problem. I have so many meals that we like that it's hard to get them all into a regular meal rotation. I'm sure it has a little to do with the fact that I love to cook and try new recipes and a lot to do with us loving to eat and rarely finding something that we simply don't like.

Needless to say, meal planning can be a bit overwhelming with so many choices! I asked my husband what his 5 favorite dinners were, then added mine to the list, then added 3 more to make a neat list of 13. Here's hoping for a little simpler meal planning by consulting this list for a few meals each week!

If I'm going to get in a rut, it might as well be with our favorite foods!

So here we have it, divided into neat categories of his, hers and ours:

Our 13 Favorite Meals

1)Homemade Pizza
2)Lasagna Soup
3)Stove-top Chicken and Rice
4)Ham Bundles
5)Chicken Stuffing Bake(I need to "healthify" this one!)

6)Taco Soup
7)Rotisserie-style Chicken
8)Lemon-Herb Chicken
9)Homemade Macaroni & Cheese
10)Creamed Eggs

11)Israeli Spice Chicken
12)Spinach Quiche

What are some of your family's favorite meals?

Rotisserie chicken seems to always top the list around here. I love that we can stretch it into several meals.

We are definitely a family that makes the same thing. With six kids, it is easier to stick to what I know everyone likes. Although I will say that our meal rotation includes about 30 meals so there is some variety!

Spaghetti and meatballs, real gyros, BBQ chicken stew, baked herb chicken...
We have a very large rotation and our family loves to try new foods. I have to be careful to include fam favs in my menu. LOL
