It sounds funny, but I had such a hard time coming up with things that all four of us would eat ~ and stbx was the pickiest!
Here's what the kids and I like, can you help me come up with some meals out of it? These foods are the only ones we all 3 like. I feel like we need more variety!
~ Cheese (lots and lots!)
~ Meat (mostly ground italian saucage)
~ Quinoa (sometimes the kids will eat this, not always)
~ the kids don't really like veggies, but they'll eat salad... any other ideas?
~ tomato soup
~ sandwiches (gf bread)
~ potatoes, but not fried, only baked or mashed
That doesn't seem like much that we agree on... we eat kind of traditional/paleo but not really. Lots of veggies, potatoes, etc.
Me, DS, and DD Grateful to the baby I lost for sticking around long enough to teach me what I needed to know so badly We love our forest valley home, our goats and chickens, and wild harvested food-medicine
meatball sandwiches, salad
twice baked potatoes or loaded potatoes
lasagna, manicotti or stuffed shells with salad
Greek potatoes, baked feta cheese, olives and salad
minestrone which has lots of veggies and some pasta
Try searching http://www.supercook.com/ with the foods your family can agree on.

Shepherd's Pie - some kind of meat (or fake meat - as we use boca burgers for ours) with carrots/onions, some other veggie (often corn), topped with mashed potatoes.
Grilled cheese & tomato soup
Corn chowder (I make one that's pretty potato-ish)
Chili with baked potatoes, or broccoli & cheese with baked potato
Beer cheese soup with bread and/or salad
Gnocci is a great pasta variant - my kids love it. I saute some random veggies to serve with it (think half an onion, a tomato, a zucchini). I also like to do cheese tortellini with sauce on the side (for dipping into with a toothpick).
I often just do celery/carrot sticks with ranch dressing for the kids on the side of anything, if they've been being picky about veggies lately - low stress & prep, minimizing complaining for myself. Although one of them will eat loads of broccoli at anytime, if offered. Simple frozen corn or peas (for one of them) are also another good bet - I make one serving of them at a time, and eat what I like for myself instead at a meal.
Not sure if you had left out eggs because you don't eat/like them or just didn't think about them -- but we do a lot of egg/potato meals here too because they're relatively kid-friendly (for my kiddos) and easy to customize just a bit for people who like other or different things too. Egg & cheese & spinach sandwiches. Cheesy omelets with hash browns & broccoli. I'll also make crepes and eggs with veggies. Scrambled eggs with mashed-potato 'cakes' (mashed up with some veggies/cheese/spices and baked or fried). You could obviously sub an egg for sausage/bacon/pork chop/etc. too, for a lot of meals like this if the case was you don't eat them.
