What to Eat Every Night for the Entire Month
30 dinner ideas for 30 days
If “What are we having for dinner?” is a question that fills you with dread every single night, maybe it’s time to stop asking it.
Our brilliant solution: meal templates. Simply assign a different theme (say, “pizza” or “casserole”) to each night of the month and then cook something that falls into that category. No guesswork. Plenty of creativity.
