I suggested this on another thread, but what about roasts? They can be served plain the first night, then the leftovers can be made into taco's, sandwiches, enchiladas, etc. Ham is also very versitlile. It can be eaten simply baked the first night then the leftovers can be made into soups, beans, sandwiches, etc. Also try making varying the way you cook potatoes. I make baked home fries alot, they're quick and easy. My family also likes scalloped potatoes au gratin, in addition to baked and mashed potatoes.
If I were you, I would always make side dishes with other vegetables in them. You might be the only one to eat them at first, but maybe your family will try them and find they like them.
