30 Dinner Ideas, a List

What’s for dinner?  That’s a daily question, and there are many ways to easily address it.  The simplest is to plan ahead.  Whether writing a weekly or monthly menu, once the decision is made, it’s much easier.  If you’re not that much of a planner or what you chose doesn’t appeal at all (I have my moments!), then one piece of advice I read that resonated in me is this: Always know what’s for dinner by 10AM.  The stress is gone.  Your mind is free for everything else that day.

Here are a list of meal ideas in no particular order.  It’s something to refer to as needed when your brain is drawing a blank, and someone else can do the thinking for you. 🙂
