25 Dinner Rotation Planner - Toddler Friendly!

In an effort to become more organized and because baby number two is just days away (eeeeek!), I have decided to put together a 25 dinner rotation plan. As much as I love Pinterest and searching for new recipes, I find myself myself stuck in a rut as far as dinner goes and often cook the same meals, not to mention scrambling last minute to try to put together a suitable meal for my family. I am going to print out these recipes and just keep them in a binder to have them easily accessible

Lasagna Soup
I went with 25 because my husband works overnight at least one evening a week and I just make something simple for my daughter and I. This also takes into account having leftovers since some of these recipes make large portions. I figure that if I plan to prepare 5 home cooked dinners a week with 25 different choices we won't repeat the same meals for five weeks!

Chicken Enchiladas Verdes
I chose meals that I know my toddler daughter will eat and are fairly quick and easy to prepare. I am hoping that this post will help other busy families out there and will give you some new dinner time inspiration! You'll notice we don't eat a ton of red meat. We mostly go with chicken, turkey or meatless meals. I threw in a couple beef and pork meals for my husband! Also when the meals are more "light" like soup or meatless meals, I will also add in freshly baked bread or warmed up pita.

I would love to hear what your   favorite "go to" kid friendly dinners are too!
Thanks for stopping by!
