Kid’s Pick Menu Plan

Struggling with 

What to Cook for Dinner?

Endless Meal Ideas Cheatsheet cover 200

This time of year is a busy time, all the more reason to have a meal plan. When I have a meal plan, it makes getting dinner done so much easier. Without a plan I would struggle and who knows what we would end up eating.

Probably breakfast for dinner quite a few nights in a row. Breakfast for dinner is great but not more than once a week.

Menu plan with recipe links

This meal plan was planned by my kids, they picked out the meals we should finish out and start the new year with this year. 

I found when I let my kids plan what to eat, they picked to eat Mexican dishes and homemade dinners I grew up eating that they now love too.

It was a fun experiment to let them pick what we would eat this week. I was surprised my son didn’t add hamburgers and fries. But he did ask for Sloppy Joes which we’ll be eating this week.

We’ll also be having my great grandma’s recipe for pork chops. It’s simple and easy but so delicious, baked in the oven to perfection. We make it with roasted potatoes that can cook right alongside them in the oven.

We’ll also be having tuna casserole, a family favorite. And easy crock pot lasagna, which is so easy to make, no need to boil the noodles first. Scroll down to see the full meal plan.

  1. I see that your son picked sloppy joes again! So cute 🙂

    My little guy picked meatloaf for this week, and he gobbled it down last night with no fighting. I guess I should have him pick dinners more often!

    Hope you have a good week!
