The most annoying, yet consistent, question of the day is "what should we do for dinner"?

growing up I don't remember it being so annoyinmg between 5:30 and 7:00 depending on teh day and what time shul was, we had dinner. Now that I know it doenst fall from the sky and someone has to make it, it's a pain.

You don't want to have the same things all the time, but the reason you have those same meals is they are easy to make, and probably inexpensive. You can order food, but that gets costly after a while, and again you end up ordering the same foods of teh menus. From Friday at lunch thru sunday dinner, we had pizza three times.

Other popular meals are Hot dogs, shabbos leftovers, mac and cheese. We enjoy eating out at BKC. Still every night, its teh same annoying drama, what's for dinner

ps - chicken soup is a great "meal in a pot" - you got your protein, you got your veggies, and - if you throw in some potatoes and/or sweet potatoes - you got your carbs. can you tell what we're having for dinner tonight?

you don't remember mom asking what we want for dinner, and our answering we don't care, and her comback was "so i won't make anything.. if no one cares.." and would dad be back early enough to eat before minyan, or go straight to minyan, or leave in the middle of dinner for mincha....???

OK, here's a thought. Those are all really icky, unhealthy meals. Plan ahead, make a menu for the week of dinners. I just started doing this and it's great. I defrost whatever I have planned for the day and make sure I'm loaded with salad in the fridge. Takes the annoying out of the question.

stir fry, meatloaf, hambergers, tacos, falafel, lasagna, pasta with sauce, meatballs with rice or spaghetti, there are tons of different soups that are easy. There is alot you can do, you just have to find what you like and what you are good at preparing.
