It’s 5:00…and you have no idea what you are going to make for dinner!  Or…maybe you unexpectedly spend all afternoon helping a friend and now you don’t have time to prepare what you had planned for dinner!  It happens to every mom…even when you plan…life happens and plans change!

Sometimes I just need a list of easy…no brainer dinner ideas to save the day!  But I just couldn’t find one that was right for me!

So…I made one!  A list of no brainer dinner ideas that take very little effort on my part to throw together and still be able to feed these people who call me Mom!

I thought of some general ingredients we usually have on hand and wrote down some easy dinner ideas for each category.  It’s in my recipe binder for those days when my plan gets thrown off track!

And as a bonus…I could just rotate these meals and BAM!  There are 3 weeks of easy no brainer meals planned!

What easy dinner ideas would you add to the list?

And…I know we don’t all have the same food preferences!  So, I made you a blank one!

Another one of my sanity saving meal strategies is having freezer meals ready to go.  And if you need ideas for your no brainer meal ideas list…Check this out!

Make it Happen!
