More Easy Dinner Recipes

As a busy working Mom myself I am always looking for Easy Dinner Recipes I can cook for my family. When you're working all day, doing the school run and attending outer school activities, you really need quick and easy recipes and of course Healthy Recipes for Kids. Coming up with new and exciting meals that all the family will eat can bring many mothers to despair. I find the best way to deal with this is to Meal Plan, this works for me, before I do my weekly shop I fill in a weekly meal planner and then write the ingredients I need on to my shopping list.

This way I don't always cook the same meals every week, on the same day and I don't end up cooking Pork, Beef or Fish four days out of the seven. Chicken, I also plan what Breakfast, Lunch and snacks we will be having this really does save me some time and it helps when we do our family budgeting. Because we use this method I can also look for new recipes to try as the family are used to having a variety of meals which are healthy and nutritious.
