What are the top meals that everyone in your family enjoys??


For us:

-Any variation of roasted chicken with white rice & roasted broccoli
-Pasta with homemade sauce (and especially meatballs!!)
-Homemade pizza with caesar salad (made with King's Hawaiian croutons)
-Grilled steak with wedge salad (extra bacon)


Would love to hear yours and get some inspiration!

DD is such a pain so there aren't many things we all love.

I'd say homemade pizza is the biggest hit. I make it gluten free these days for DH and we all still enjoy it.
Honey baked ham
meatloaf
Tacos with homemade guac
Roasted chicken with gravy and roasted veggies
Things DH and I like that I'm hoping DD will come around to are pasta with meat sauce, chicken chili, pulled pork, pot roast. Pretty much anything that simmers away in a big pot!

My husband laughs because I insist on a protein & vegetable for each meal.

Proteins:
Chicken (grilled, baked, fried in cutlets)
Pork (chops grilled or pan fried)
Steak (grilled or pan seared & baked)
Fish (oven baked, poached, rarely grilled)

Vegetables:
Butternut squash
Broccoli (kids love it)
Kale
Spinach
Corn
Asparagus
Brussels (yep, kids do love it)

We add rice or grain as a filler (in addition to something like asparagus).

Who would think kids like poached salmon? Most meals take less than 30 mins. All are enjoyed by the kids who otherwise go hungry. We get a lots of "yummy" after they say they don't want to try something. We've been doing this since day 1 & it works.

The adults also get a salad.

Re: Family Favorites?

Wow! My kids don't eat any of that. I was glad I got them to eat chicken tacos the other night, oh and no salsa, guac, or lettuce & tomato.
They stink!
They like chicken ravioli with Alfredo sauce
Pasta with meatballs or meat sauce
Chicken cutlets
Beef or turkey stroganoff
Pork chops (sometimes)

For veggies, they like broccoli, corn, green beans, and cucumbers.

DD#1 won't eat burgers, hot dogs, grilled cheese, mac & cheese (unless it's Kraft), or any other normal things that people eat. She's a real pain. Part of the problem is that I work nights, so am only home for dinner 3-4 nights week. Hopefully I can change my schedule soon so I'll be there more, and can turn things around. I'd love them to eat normal stuff like meatloaf, pot roast, soup, etc.
