Family Dinner recipe tips

With busy schedules and activities, it’s not always easy to get cooking in a relaxed way, even for simple recipes. Here are a couple of tips to make family dinner easier:

Create a family meal plan together

Map out a basic meal plan for the coming week. It doesn’t have to be elaborate but this will help you plan the grocery shopping trips and tasks that can be made ahead. You may want to include a leftover night or a “breakfast night” where you can reheat leftovers or eat quick breakfast food on busy weeknights.

Make the dinner prep and clean-up a family affair

If you want to keep it going, you must make dinner time manageable for everyone in the household. If only one person has the planning, shopping, prepping, cooking, and clean-up duties all to themselves, the burnout is sure to come soon. So to make family dinners easier, assign everyone a task, no matter their age, and work it out altogether.
