My Family's Ten Favorite Meals

Last week Lori posted a list of her family's ten most favorite meals, and asked what our families like. I couldn't come up with a list off the top of my head, but I have one now! These are in no particular order.
  1. Meatloaf with baked potatoes and broccoli
  2. Grilled steak (although we eat this infrequently because of the cost)
  3. Lasagna, manicotti, or stuffed shells--any baked dish with pasta, sauce, and cheese
  4. Homemade pizza, preferably with pepperoni, peppers, onions, and fresh garlic
  5. Pasta with meatballs, sausage, or both (This is my son's perennial birthday request!)
  6. Chicken fajitas
  7. Red beans and rice (made with ground beef)
  8. "Superchicken" (Buffalo-style chicken breast)
  9. Tilapia, either oven-fried or simply baked
  10. BLT sandwiches (only when we have homegrown tomatoes)

What are your family's favorite meals?


  1. Melissa, I am so glad you did this! :) Tomorrow I'm posting a list on my blog of the several ladies that did their top ten meals! I'll add you! :) Looks good. I think everybody loves meatloaf, don't they?? We sure do!

  2. Do you have your red beans and rice recipe on here somewhere? I have wanted to try those but don't know how to cook them.

  3. Thanks for posting! It's always great to be reminded of dishes that haven't been used in awhile! I'm looking forward to pulling out my old shells recipe now!

  4. I would love to have your recipe for superchicken!! Sounds like something we would like. I like you list of meals!

  5. That superchicken sounds good. I hope the recipe is somewhere on your blog. My husband and I love buffalo style chicken.

    I really don'
    t have a family list of favorites. Nobody in the family likes the same thing. Sometimes I feel like a restaurant...I am cooking three to four different meals:p

  6. They all sound wonderful -- I love the grilled steak. Thanks for coming by today. Have a wonderful weekend.

  7. I just posted the recipe for Superchicken. Hope you like it as much as we do!

  8. This was a great idea! Thanks for sharing your family's favorites.
