A list of 50 meal ideas. You know I’m procrastinating, right? Of course, I am. I’m in the middle of cleaning my kitchen and the refrigerator is a priority today. In an effort to declutter my life, I thought I’d take this tattered piece of paper off of the fridge and type it out electronically. Which means, I get to share it with all of you as well. I know mealtime is always super hectic for families. But I also know having a library of ideas and a few good solid recipes can make you feel like a professional chef.

I’ll try to include some recipe links but many of these recipes I just goggle when I need them. Or it’s a recipe written on a card and I don’t have that much time to procrastinate. Most of these things are typically on hand items that are forgotten about or spruced up a bit. As always, I challenge you to make it as healthy as possible. Swap out pre-made items for homemade. Add in vegetables as a side dish.
