Need Dinner Ideas

Help! Our kids are getting sick of eating the same things for dinner all the time. I want to give them a bigger variety, but I keep drawing blanks. What kinds of dinners do you have at your house? There are 7 people in our house and we are on a semi-fixed budget. My husband and I have children ranging from 2 years old to 15. Our usual menu each week is tacos, spaghetti, burgers & fries, meatloaf, and soup. I need some ideas for something completely different that's not going to cost an arm and a leg (filet mignon is out!) or different things to do with chicken or ground meat. What's on your household's favorites list?

Hiya! Try this.. well do the kids eat veggies? You can be creatuve, purchase some chicken, and some pre-made pie crusts, dice chicken, beat up an egg or two, add some veggies, potatoe, maybe even some cheese, season to taste and bake VIOLA... we love this and it is not costly at all! Good luck!

Thank you! That's a great idea! 4 out of the 5 kids like veggies, so the unfortunate outvoted one is usually left to picking them out. Thanks for the idea!
