Isn't it funny how dinner time rolls around every night, yet sometimes we are TOTALLY unprepared? We know it's coming all day but sometimes we play dumb and just act like it's not going to happen today.

Well, I got your back. The answer to dinner time survival is two-fold...

  1. Plan, plan, plan.
  2. Have a list of go-to quick and wholesome meals like this Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup.

Take a few minutes out of your day on Sunday to plan your weekly meals. Get your morning coffee and get busy. Flip through some magazines or print some recipes off of Seasonal Cravings.

I keep those recipes that my family loves in a binder and each week I pull out a few favorites. I try not to make more than one new meal each week just to keep it easy.

We always have at least one easy night like scrambled eggs or pancakes for dinner and we order pizza on Fridays.

Trust me having that weekly plan posted on the fridge makes you feel like you got this! It reduces my stress immensely and helps me to avoid the 5:00, what's for dinner dilemma.

Another way I love to streamline my weekly meal planning is heading to my local Harris Teeter. I am in Harris Teeter at least twice a week! Learn more about meal planning here with my Meal Planning Guide.

I love how easy it is for me to pick up wholesome, organic products for my go to weekly meals. Their organic products are non-GMO and free of artificial preservatives and antibiotics so I can feel good about feeding them to my family. I am always amazed by how many organic products they have available.

My goal is to find less complicated ways to get wholesome food on the table for my family and Harris Teeter helps me make this happen. I can make my weekly spaghetti, sheet pan fajitas or tacos with affordable organic products! That's a huge win in my house.
