Dinner? You mean I have to make that again?

Tired of having grilled chicken or a salad for dinner?

Never have a plan, but always have the hunger?

Just need a quick book of ideas to feed the ones you love?

No problem, just start collecting. You probably already have some healthy, quick, go-to meals. Write them down, and start your own cookbook. The kind with the three ring binder that holds recipe cards works great. Next, start trying new recipes, one or two per week. Decide if you like or dislike the recipe and if you like it, and it to your family's cookbook. Make sure to try out quick recipes, those you can double and freeze for later, kid-as-the-chef recipes, and so on. Just make sure to junk the ones you don't like and keep the ones you do. That way the next time you are meal planning (and when aren't you meal planning) and stuck for ideas, you can whip out the family cookbook and use a few tested recipes that please everyone!
