I need some help

Here's your mission. I need two weeks worth of healthy (or not), kid friendly and budget friendly meals. My mind is a blank. So help me out, give me your favorite dinner recipes! Thanks in advance!! (Just post them in the comment section) I'll even welcome desserts :)

The reason being I usually plan two weeks of meals and then all the groceries that accompany them. This way I don't buy things I don't need and I can use the produce right away because it spoils.

So here is one of my favorite meals as a kid...its kinda weird, but I still love it. Its called "Chicken Surprise" in our house.

Hard boil eggs (however many you want). Heat can (or two) of cream of chicken soup. Cube the hardboiled eggs and add to the soup until get desired consistency and cook until heated. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve over toast. Can also add cubed chicken. Enjoy!

I just emailed you a bunch of recipes. As you can tell, we eat a lot of chicken in this house! I'm not sure that they are all overly healthy, but I don't think they're that bad. Abbie eats them, which is what really matters to me!

The more I read your stories I think our boys would have a ton of fun together:) So we rotate different meats-mon/hamburger-tue/fish-wed/chicken-
-brats/or italian sausage. We dont use any cream of anything(we like to try and eat pretty healthy) and everything has salad with it. So this week we had spagetti-meatballs on monday- fish/rice/green beans on tues- brats and salad on wed - grilled chicken and salad on thursday-tacos on friday. We have tacos at least once a week fish-chicken-hamburger. The fish sounds gross but it is so good with some salsa and avacado on it.mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Hope this helps. Ohhh one other thing I did when I was in a cooking funk is went grocery shopping with a friend to see what she buys. So much fun and got lots of good ideas. KEEP THE GOOD STORIES COMING:)

I love oven baked chicken fingers where you take chicken tenders and dip them in something wet (butter, eggs or Ranch/Italian dressing- whatever you have) and then coat them in corn flake crumbs. Bake them at 425 for about 15 minutes and they are done.
I also love the Meal Makeover Moms with their kid friendly recipes. The grab n' go breakfast bars are really good (almost as good as cookies!).
