60 Dinners and Counting

Recently, I started a 2-month menu plan, hoping to rotate some of our easier, more affordable dinner favorites, but still have a good variety so we don't get bored and I no longer have to hear "What's for dinner?" and not have an answer. I'm going to post it on the fridge, like I used to do.

In case you are interested in some meal ideas, here is my list. There is room for growth, please suggest and share links and/or recipes if you have a favorite I didn't include! Some of these are a tad obscure or have personal references, so I will post recipes or links to recipes if you ask for them!

EDIT: I was about to post this and I realized it is really more of a cold weather list. I won't be making soups as much when it gets warm outside, so I think I will dub this the Fall/Winter list and make a new Spring/Summer list as well...
