Spaghetti with meat or veggie sauce, salad and garlic cheese bread or breadsticks is always a hit here.
The other big hit is mini apple cheddar turkey meatloves, sweet potatoes (baked, oven baked fries, hash, grilled, or pieces baked with onion and thyme--I love sweet potatoes so my "poor darlings" have to eat them all the time!) and peas or other green veg and some apple sauce.
I use this recipe (I think originally from Southern Living?) for making the mini loaves--it only makes 8 mini loaves so I usually at least double it but it's quick--like 30 mins from start to table.
Apple Cheddar Turkey Mini Meatloaves
20oz ground turkey
1/4c Panko (japanese) bread crumbs
1 medium onion, shredded
1 medium granny smith apple, shredded
1 lightly beaten egg
1 tsp salt
3/4 tsp pepper
1 1/4 c. cheddar cheese, divided in half
1. Heat oven to 375
2. Combine all ingredients + 1/2 cheddar cheese until just mixed (easiest to do it with your hands, you don't want to over-work it)
3. divide into 8 portions, and shape each into a mini loaf on a lined cookie sheet
4. Bake 16 minutes
5. Sprinkle reserved cheese over the tops and bake 5 minutes more (often I just put all the cheese into the loaves and skip this, opting instead to bake for 20 minutes straight)
Chili, spaghetti, soups. My family loves mashed potatoes and barbeque meat. Either chicken or steak. We can get Petite serloin cheap. Its cheaper than chicken, so we have it at leasst once a week. Usually for Sunday dinner. We also rotisserie turkey often. I can get a turkey breast for under $7 from Target and we have a stand alone rotisserie to cook it in. Its the perfect size for our family of 6 plus my brother.

oooh yum.....can we come to your houses for dinner????
Jenilope I am not a fan of fruit and meat cooked together, BUT that does sound good the mini loafs. I think the apple being shredded makes it doable. I think I will try that recipe sometime after I have the baby.. Thats a pretty healthy and quick dinner!! just what I like !!
