- Italian (usually pasta)
- Pizza night
- Soup and sandwich
- Salads or raw
- Breakfast for dinner
We also normally have a pizza night (I make the crust, but the pizza toppings always change).
So far it's working very well for me. It provides structure but allows me to utilize good sales on meat.
a bread meal, homemade bread wtih different spreads, cheese, raw veg
a build your own salad meal, with greens, marinated beans, seeds, hard boiled eggs, assorted veg
pancake meal with berries, nuts, bacon, honey (my kids like fruit yogurt to dip their pieces of pancake in)
cassarole meal with a salad and bread
slow cooker meal meat and veg layered in a crock pot
granola meal, with fruit, yogurt, icecream
vegetable main dish meal
another soup meal is hot broth over assorted noodles, rice, chopped cooked meat, green onions, spouts, hot peppers, every one builds their own bowl of noodles etc and then you pour hot broth over it
rice meal stirfried or steamed with assorted veg, nuts etc
and for a celebration, an icecream meal, with fruit, sauces, cookies or cakes, nuts and seeds
personally, in my house we always like build your own pizza, and the kids always like chili, although now that it's getting warmer i don't want to make chili so much. we use our little wee bbq alot, i could see setting aside one night a week that is a grilled meal.

ETA: The Appetizers was during football season when we liked to sit and watch the games and snack. Don't do that in the summer, and now I would replace that with another grill day.

breakfast for dinner
color (pick a color and have all the food be one color)
Mini Food (all food is tiny, mini versions of regular food)
Saturdays are always a "fun food" night. Usually something grilled, but lots of things would qualify. Pizza, wings, sandwiches, calzones, chicken fingers, barbecue. You get the idea.
Usually once a week, we have a "grandma food" night. It's stuff my grandma used to make, of course. Chicken and dressing, chicken fried steak, meatloaf, that sort of thing. Basically anything you'd get at a meat and three restaurant.
israeli couscous in tomato soup
little round meat loafs......
but this won't help with a once a week thing.
we also do food for ethnic holidays, like chinese new's year and st. joseph's day table. retro food, farm house cooking, etc. i also do things like "native american thanksgiving." (the highlights were a whole salmon and wild rice)
these days we are eating much simpler though.

Leftover night. Whatever is in the fridge.
Backwards night - dessert before dinner.
Color nights. Each time, pick a color and eat monochromatically.
Picnic night - on the floor, or out back.
Have fun! Lisa
