Great list! We eat a lot of the same things but somewhat less variety in our fruits and veggies. Tonight was ground beef stroganoff (adapted from the recipe in Family Feast-Mary Ostyn book) broccoli or salad (trying to use up the fresh veggies) Last night was chicken mixed veggies and rice similar to rice roni mixed together and cornbread. Tomorrow will likely be homemade mac/cheese.

Those sound great! I forgot about beef stroganoff, that is one of our family favorites. It seems like when it is time to cook, I cannot think of what we like, so making a list really helped! And rotating things around make it nicer for me!

I love your list. We have one we made years ago, and occasionally I dig it out for inspiration. Tonight we had stir fry (chicken breast, a bag of veggies, some sauce, and ta da, dinner in 15 minutes. My kind of meal!
