So here are my most cooked meals every month. Some with links to the recipes. I think I may try one major grocery shopping trip for the month to buy most of the ingredients and I may even start cooking some ahead of time and freezing them so things go smoothly after school gets going. Having a meal in the freezer keeps me from running out to a restaurant. If a recipe involves ground beef we usually use ground turkey and look for other substitutions in these recipes to save fat/calories/salt.
Potato Soup with Paninis
Waffles and Turkey Bacon (thanks to this magic machine and the waffle plates)

Stir Fry Chicken or Beef with Rice (frozen stir fry veggies with the meat with this and then I make fried rice)

I usually try 2-5 new recipes every month so those are somewhere in the rotation and we eat out occasionally.
