The 1-2 Punch Dinner: A Guide to Feeding Your Whole Family
Getting a healthy and wholesome mid week dinner on the table that everyone in the family will eat and actually enjoy is a feat, to say the least. Eating healthy means a well balanced, homemade meal with exciting flavors and ingredients that make sitting down for dinner exciting and nutritious. Some nights this means I spend so much time in the kitchen cooking to every like and dislike of my small family that I become some what of a short order cook. So after many frustrated Tuesday and Wednesday nights, I decided to drop the job of everyone’s personal chef, and start getting creative and force my self to do some planning ahead of time to make meals that can be both picky eater approved and make my husband and I just as excited to sit down and enjoy, preferably after everyone is in bed with a glass of wine in hand.
Cue my 1-2 Punch Dinner Ideas. My favorite wholesome, homemade meals using creative ways of being time and ingredient efficient in the kitchen without compromising deliciousness for every kind of eater. For each dinner, I have 1 recipe that will give you 2 meals, one for the kids and one for the adults, using only a couple of extra ingredients or modifications. From now on feeding your family should be something that is homemade, delicious, and easily transformed from kid approved to a dinner hungry adults will get excited to sit down for.
