Dinners that Don't Require Recipes

If you are in charge of cooking or planning dinners at your house, you should have this page somewhere in your kitchen!  I keep mine in my dinner cooking notebook.

(If you missed my post on cooking notebooks, you can read more HERE.)

The purpose of this page is to keep track of all the dinner ideas that I don't use recipes for... basically the easy ones that I always forget about.


My list contains:

  • Dinners that are so easy you couldn't possibly need a recipe for them (BLTs)
  • Dinners that I've been making for so long that I don't even have a recipe for them (spaghetti) 
  • Dinners that you don't need to follow a recipe to make because you can make them with any ingredients you want/have (wraps)  



When I'm planning the week's meals, this is the list I go to for days when I know that my husband and I will both be home late, since most of the ideas on here are either very easy, or very familiar and don't take too much effort to make.  I save the complicated or new recipes to try on days when I know I'll have a little more time.

If you want to make your own list, you can download the printable template HERE




Happy meal planning!

  1. This is how I run my life ha. If I can remember how to make something off the top of my head, that's what I cook. Recipes are for people who have time to think.

    1. Haha! Yes, I do love the days when dinner takes less than 10 minutes to make!
