What Should I Make For Dinner

Figuring out what you’re in the mood for can be tricky, but it depends on how much time you have and what you already have in your kitchen!

If you need something quick and easy, try something like ground beef stroganoff or air fryer chicken thighs!

More time on your hands? We love using the slow cooker for mains like beef bourguignon and creamy thai peanut chicken.

Looking for a vegetarian or meatless main dish recipe? Try whipping up kung pao brussels sprouts! They’re always a hit.

Our 3 biggest questions when we are deciding on dinner (or making a dinner menu for the week) are:

  1. What do I already have?
  2. Can I freeze it, have leftovers, or create a new meal out of leftovers?
  3. Do I need to grocery shop?

If you are planning a dinner menu, look for main dishes that have similar ingredients. This will help you save on ingredients, and time spent at the store.

We like to do this for side dishes too!
