Vent....and dinner challenge

I have to vent about this for a minute....I go the grocery store on average twice a week about 150.00/ week, even being a pretty active couponer. And yet I still feel like we never have anything to eat! We have a lot of ingredients etc... but nothing that is just a fast dinner or lunch, that I can pull out of the refrigerator and throw together last minute. It is hard because that is usually how meals are these days especially on the weekends, "Ok Will just woke up we have like 10 minutes to eat lunch before we need to leave!" What does your family eat for lunch at home on weekends? What is one of your "go to" weeknight dinners? If you are a blogger I challenge you to post one of your, somewhat healthy, easy go to dinners, if we all do this we might come up with a really handy list! :) Here are a couple of ours to get going: TACO CRUNCH CASSEROLE Not incredibly healthy, but you can kick it up with extra green pepper or corn BAKED ZITA A healthy twist on the everyday pasta dish HOMEMADE PIZZA we do pepperoni with green peppers or whatever you like for a quick and yummy dinner!

  1. I feel the same way!

    One of the biggest tricks I learned recently is to brown turkey (or ground beef or chicken) in the crock pot with a little water and seasoning for 3 hrs on high. It has been a life saver!

    In the winter we do a lot of crock pot meals boring I know ;o)
    Summer we do a ton of grilling.

    We eat a lot of wraps. I take cook up chx breast and leave it in fridge with buffalo sauce or in a pinch use breaded chicken patties..add a little ranch or blue cheese, celery, broccoli slaw , and cheese, it's delish! Hubby likes to make whole wheat pizzas using tortillas and mini pepperonis. Sandwiches are always a go to or just cheese & crackers or some oatmeal or yogurt & fruit...all for lunch of course.
