What’s For Dinner? How to choose the most tricky meal of the day!

Mummy Confession: It it SO overwhelming trying to figure out what is for dinner every single night!

You might have come across this page via the handy little “pick your dinner” video, so I figured I would make it easy to find those delicious recipes by listing them mostly alphabetically by recipe name for you to peruse and plan! You can find all of these great recipes (as well as soups, salads and desserts) throughout our Meal Plan Monday Posts. These recipes are from some great blogs and fellow mums. There are some pretty great finds below!
If you want to spin again, click here to get to the bottom of the post where you can play and stop the video again. Check out the great list of slow cooker and soup meals here, too!

If you love what you see, I highly recommend subscribing for updates from the website where you found the recipe, too!

If you’re on Facebook, let us know what you’ve chosen for dinner tonight!
